retreat weekend, as usual, was wonderful although I am sure none of us went anywhere near a scale this morning! We ate Indian, Mexican and wedding cake! No – noone was married on the weekend but Karen was practicing for an upcoming wedding and made the MOST amazing cake! which of course we had to taste test! for breakfast, lunch and supper! It passed the test! Hooker vitamins (aka caramel corn with nuts) and jujubes were there to help us make it through the days of industrious hooking (although we did!!! find an antique store nearby and had to take a little break to visit!). We hooked on the dock with our feet dangling in the water – well for a few minutes! Those mountain lakes are NIPPY! And all this in the midst of wonderful friends and hosts.
So here are a few pix of what was being worked on this weekend:
Betty finished her ultra wide cut sheep from our Karen Kaiser class:
Sandi brought along her Foul Fowl challenge piece:
and her Betsy Reid Wide cut rabbit:
Andrea got this rug for an amazing price of 5.00 at the thrift store:
Louise’s appliqué based on a Yoko Saito pattern:
My Deanne Fitzpatrick April pattern – may have to call a carpenter to fix that first house – looks like it is on its way down a hill:
Karen’s rug from our class with Kathy Clark of Briarwood Folkart:
Donna WOULD have finished this if she had not run out of stockings!:
My Abstract Paisley – small version (a Karla Gerard pattern I carry but much bigger and more detailed – this small version is being made to go on a little antique aged teal table) – actually finished this by Sunday morning – now for a braided edge!!!:
Wow, that’s a fine bunch of rugs. I love them all!
