The last few days have been heavenly. We have been home, finally, for a few days and have spent mornings on the dock having coffee and afternoons out on the pontoon boat swimming and reading (too hot to hook!). Yesterday as I lounged on the dock at around 7 a.m. I heard Graaaaakkk Graaaaaakkkkkk  (can you hear that?) and two beautiful herons flew into the huge pine trees that line our little piece of shoreline and sat there for about 10 minutes. It was glorious!!!!Image Image 1 Dock days have been few and far between this summer as we are moving my mom from 5 hours away to Kingston so that we can spend more time with her and have her close by and safe.  This means a lot of time has been spent trying to clear out the house for sale and packing stuff to bring to her new apartment. Plus, we have had a few medical emergencies and unfortunately last Thursday I missed Karen Kaiser’s wonderful waterside hookin. Everyone that I have spoken with who attended said it was a fabulous day – great weather and of course a beautiful venue with lots of wonderful rugs being worked on and  new and returning vendors. This Thursday, however, I will be vending at the Prince Edward District Women’s Institute Art and Craft Sale in Picton at the fairgrounds. You can find me in my usual spot in the curling rink so hopefully some of you can make it to this fun show. Doors open from 9 – 7… So, of necessity, very little hooking has been going on in my house, however, I did finish hooking a Celtic knot that I have made into a pillow – in willllllddd colours (well for me they are wild). I did this in 6, 8 and 8.5 cuts and will be offering this as a pattern/kit… HPIM6372 Plus I finished a small piece as a topper for an antique stool(somewhat more my style in those old dirty colours!)… HPIM6375   and another little stool I painted and distressed and hooked a topper for…(well this was actually done months ago)HPIM6376   And a few other pictures to share: Trish’s geometric bench pad…Image 1 Delande’s motorcycle based on a photo of her son’s bike… Imageand Maureen’s Happy Houses (Karla Gerard pattern)…Image 1

  2. These rugs are gorgeous as always. I of course LOVE the Celtic pillow. I think this is a ‘must have’ pattern for me. So save me one. Love the lazy look of the dock. How restorative is that place!
