Faith Hope and Love Penny Rug


Last year I completed a 100% hand dyed wool embroidery penny rug which I have dedicated to our marriage. The theme of the wall hanging is "Faith, Hope and Love. The Greatest of These is Love.

We both had a sad past and lived in two different countries when we met on an online Christian chat group. We both had faith and hope that one day we would find someone new to care about and love. During the time we chatted with each other online and on the phone we fell in love but neither of us would admit it until much later. We met along the shores of Lake Huron when I came back to Michigan for a holiday from Germany. During the summer of 2004 we fell in love and have never look back. Two and a half months later I was back home in Michigan and we got married within 7 days of my return. We have now been married for just about 4 years. We treasure each day we are together.

The Faith, Hope and Love Welcome Sign DH bought for me to hang on our front door. It reflects our feeling for each other.

The Faith, Hope and Love Penny Rug pattern I instantly fell in love with and knew I needed to make it for us. The pattern is from Bonnie Sullivan from Salem, Oregon and she has a website click on her name and it will take you to her wonderful creations.

What a lovely story. Thank you for sharing it with us. Your penny rug is beautiful on its own, but the feelings behind it make it even more so.
