Relaxing the day away

It was such a great day today….reached 82 but the breeze kept it nice and comfortable.

So I grunged some gold wool felt for my Penny Rugs so I can continue to make my Daisy and Bee Skeep Rugs which I finished another one today – it’s a 10 x 24 runner with the same design as last weeks round one.

So there you have my ‘other latest’ Penny Rug

What can I say…..I’m spoiled!
Yep….who wouldn’t be with this to lounge in – finally got the camera out to take pictures of the ‘clean’ screen room….it normally last for about a week and then the webbies start showing behind the furniture like sparkling little jewels in the sunlight….too bad I can’t cash them in – I’d make a fortune!

Here’s a little a little visit to my ‘clean’ screen room…..
Oh…the ugly cushion in the chair…that is there for Lola to sit on….that way I can just pick it up and put it away when company comes and not have to use the lint roller for her fuzzies

  15. Karen, it's beautiful and I'd love to come sit with you. I know you get lots of pleasure from that wonderful room. Enjoy!

  16. Hi Karen,
    I love your screened in room! It looks so inviting and relaxing! Love the photo will all the birdhouses!!
    You had ask me what the difference is between a pet screen and a regular one. The pet screen wire is made thicker or courser so that if your pet paws at it...the screen won't get damaged or rip. They also told us that if a child pushed on is strong enough that it won't break, so the child can't fall through. I'm sure my little grandson will put it to the test when he gets old enough to start walking.

  17. Wow Karen, what a fabulous retreat! It's simply gorgeous. I love your runner too, it is so sweet!

  18. What a beautiful sun room, I hope you use it a lot this summer!
