Penny Rug Fini ~

I don't often finish a project and absolutely love it.  I like it, but that's usually it.  I think I love this penny mat.  The colors are drab but much better in person.  The finished size ended up being about 10 1/2" x 16 1/2".  The larger of the pennies measures 2 1/2"

Perfect on the antique stepback cupboard in the dining room.

Well, I'm still having email problems.  The problem being that for two days I haven't sent or received an email.  Last night (after a good hour and a half on the phone) I was assured the problem would be fixed in 2 hours.  After that time I was assured it would be today.  Well, now this afternoon I was assured it would be up and running in two to four hours and that he double checked everything to be sure it was done properly.  He doesn't know why I keep getting locked out of my account and we know that there are 199 messages in the inbox . . . sigh.  Enough already.  I am getting frustrated beyond belief.  I am ready to change my ISP, but the thought of updating my email address in so many places is daunting.
Thank you so much for listening to me whine.  In fact, I think I will have some later - without the h.
Pug hugs :)


  1. You are not talking to anyone from Global Tech, are you? They tried to pull a fast one on my mom. I had to change ALL my emails and passwords all over the place. The caller ID showed my cable company, but somehow it was a cover. When all was said and done, we called the cable company to see if anyone from there really called us and NO!!!! Those were scammers. This happened like a few weeks ago. Now I have extra anti-virus software on my computer. Like three of them. I'm overprotective like that, I guess?

  2. Lauren I love that penny mat. Very cute. Sorry about your email trouble. I'm just catching up on your past posts now.

  3. That came out beautifully. I finished one too, they are fun to make and great way to use up my scraps and make gifts.


  4. I love the colors! Beautiful finish! Hope your email problems get cleared up.

  5. Hi Lauren. I just LoVe the finished Penny Rug! I LoVe the muted colors! You have a perfect spot for it too!
    Good luck with the techies!
    Have a great weekend! Hugs Marg :)

  6. Your penny rug turned out great! I feel your frustration, when things aren't working on the computer and you keep having troubles, you want to just pull your hair out!!

  7. Your penny rug is so cute but this email thing sounds fishy to me. I wish I could give you some advice.

    Do you have a reputable computer consultant in your area that you trust?

    I hope that you get this fixed up soon. The frustration must be mounting.

  8. Your penny mat is awesome and shows you have more patience than me when it comes to hand stitching. Good job.

    Hope you get things solved soon or move onto a better server.


  9. Love your penny rug finish! ... hope they have you fixed can be so frustrating ..

  10. Your Penny Mat is beautiful and I love the colors !
    Oh, technology ! There are days I could walk away from it ;)

  11. Lauren, that penny rug is darling! Good job! Your email is through the phone company right? I've been having the same problems with not getting my emails. I've contacted them numerous times and they can't tell me why I'm not getting them. So I have found that when I open my email and go up to tools, then click on Send/Receive and then Receive all I'll get a bunch of emails... I don't know if that will help you or not. Meanwhile I ended up switching email services because I just got tired of the other. :( Char

  12. I love that penny rug too. I think it turned out just perfect. It does look wonderful there.
    I can't wait until my little kit gets here. I think it will be nice to sit and work on. Perfect for keeping hands busy.
    I do hope you get your email fixed.

  13. Love the penny mat Lauren...beautifully done!

  14. Your penny mat has a nice soft worn look. Very nice!
    Hope you solve your email problem soon.

  15. Hi Lauren,
    Love your sweet penny mat!! Lovely aged look to it that is just perfect!! I have a bunch of pennies that I hope to someday make into something!! One more unfinished project!!
    Hope you get your email fixed soon!! I truly sympathize with you and think we can all relate to technology problems!!
    Warm Hugs~
