HOOKIN AND MORE DARN MICE…

Well we are dealing with invasion of the mice! not body snatchers!!! According to my totals we have “rescued and released” either 26 mice or the same 3 mice 8+ times!!!! Must admit I am getting tired of being woken 2 times a night to the sound of rattling in the trap and having to hop into the car and drive half a kilometer to release the captives (okay so I don’t hop in the car – Gord does!). We decided when we saw one of the mouse wink at us as we released him in the garden that perhaps!!! it might be a good idea to let them go a little further away from the house! I know these critters can squeeze down to a little skinny to get in through small holes but with the numbers we are having heck there must be a beachball sized hole somewhere on the outside of my house!

Anyway, the mouse invasion did not deter me from holding a hookin yesterday and about 15 crazy hookers showed up – braving rain and possible ice on the roads and dark. But we had a great time! Ate toooooo much and tooooo well and did some hooking! and were inspired by show and tell. So here are some of the fun projects being worked on:

If I understood correctly Nancy is FINISHING THIS RUG for someone else – does she take orders?

Nancy’s rug based on a photo started in class in NFLD – a rug camp she highly recommends

Julie’s Emily Carr rug

Suzanne’s rug and below her hooked doll

Alice’s hit and miss table runner – Alice was working on the showbinding

Marilyn’s first rug – a Mad Hen Primitive pattern – wellllll done!!!

Peri’s begonia – for some reason Peri does not like this rug – I think it is wonderful!

Peri’s finished bear rug – amazing and whipped with strips rather than yarn!

Shauna’s first rug – wonderfully primitive!

Gwen’s almost finished mittens! By the end of the day they WERE finished!

Linda’s Alley cat rug – Christmas gift for hmmm was that grand daughter?
