The last few weeks have been crazy busy what with visits to mom, trip to Vermont and New Hampshire and ahhhhhhhhhh Camp Iawah rughooking retreat weekend. Yes, the one where those of us who are wise wear elastic waistbands! Despite all the comments! What a wonderful weekend we had – not only did the Camp staff take amazing care of us fulfilling special requests for homemade pizza and Rose’s amazing coconut cream pies and Jim’s scrumptious breakfasts(see, elastic waistbands are a necessity) – but also we laughed and cried (good tears from laughing too much) and were inspired all weekend by the work being done and the amazing show and tell pieces. On top of that we actually HOOKED! and finished a few pieces!!!! The challenge for this year was to repurpose – whether that was repurposing a vintage or antique piece that we attached our rugs or punch needle to or whether it was repurposing used clothing in our hooking. So the pictures below include many of the challenge pieces (some still in the making 🙂 ) …HPIM6268 HPIM6243 HPIM6244 HPIM6245 HPIM6246 HPIM6248 HPIM6249 HPIM6250 HPIM6251 HPIM6252 HPIM6254 HPIM6255 HPIM6256 HPIM6257 HPIM6258 HPIM6259 HPIM6260 HPIM6261 HPIM6262 HPIM6263 HPIM6264 HPIM6265 HPIM6266 HPIM6267 HPIM6269 HPIM6270 HPIM6271 HPIM6272 HPIM6273 HPIM6274 HPIM6276 HPIM6277 HPIM6278 HPIM6279
