I used a khaki green (army green? primitive green? it's a "something green") foundation for this penny rug. I wasn't sure about it as I was stitching it... I kept walking away, coming back to it... looking at it from across the room.... then I decided to finish it and just run with it. lol
I love to experiment with things... and yes you should have seen some of my disasters in the cooking area! BUT, sometimes things come out differently and fresh and new when you just dive in and do it a little different. You might just end up throwing things away also! ha ha! (which I've done more than a few times) Ahhh then there's those happy accidents that you didn't mean for them to happen but are so glad you went out of the box to experiment.
I think I'm going to save this penny rug for an update I have on the 15th of this month. I'm going to keep watching it for a few more days and see what other idea's I come up with... if any.
Blessings, Jean :)
