on the lake. Sat on the dock this morning drinking my coffee, reading the last article in RHM, reading my newest book Snow Flower and the Secret Fan and finishing off the showbinding on my latest Karla Gerard. And of course being entertained by our resident otter who has been hanging about our shoreline for weeks now (was not sure until today whether it was a beaver or otter but that long skinny tail and whiskery face chewing on fish answered the question!!!). So now that Bird in a Blooming Tree is finished I can move on to finishing my sheep (mini) rug and starting (or rather restarting since I totally changed the colour plan) my geometric. This is the start of my little sheep landscape:
A few days ago I attended a wonderful hookin at Linda Heatherington’s beautiful home. Last summer I posted pix of her gardens – this year they were crowded with 40 hookers! It was a hot day but there was a nice breeze and when things got too warm outside we could escape indoors for some relief (or as in my case – goodies!!!!). Some of the ladies who attended were from the Limestone Loopers and Harrowsmith group and then there were a few random additions! On the way to Linda’s Gord and I rescued 2 baby racoons from certain death on the highway. Had to wrap them in our beachtowel and carry them up into the woods where hopefully Momma racoon would find them. They were snarly little devils but so cute.
Yesterday I taught at Rosehaven Farm Store in Picton. My class – appropriately – was adding texture to your hooked rugs (visual and tactile) and what better place than an amazing fiber arts store full of gorgeous wools and yarns for knitting or hooking along with other fibers. My next class there will be in September – Hooking for the Holidays!
Well off to the dock to resume my wonderful relaxing (husband free!) day – no guilt feelings about not cleaning windows or house! Just hooking and reading … ahhhhh life is good!!!!
