HOOKIN (OR PUNCHIN) AND NOOOOOO COOKIN…

You know that is my favourite way to spend a weekend – with good friends to add inspiration and motivation.  Seems all our lives have become so complex that we have less and less time for creativity.  But a weekend with the girls at camp brings it all back again.  We laughed (till we cried!), watched a wonderful DVD by Deanne Fitzpatrick, ate well (and not even too much this time), inspired each other, listened to horror stories about cars and bats and shared precious moments together.  Oh and yes we actually hooked (or punched) and finished or started new projects. How wonderful!!!

And now for a little show of what we worked on this weekend – okay so these pictures are not the greatest.  I took them with the iPad and hmmmmmm they are a tad fuzzy and not terribly clear. Could it be wool dust on my camera lens on the iPad 🙂 .

Donna’s rug – her own design – finally show bound and ready for the table in the new 3 season room… image

Donna also finished this pillow off… image-2

Helen was punching up a storm (of snow flakes and snow men – picture is pretty bad because of the glare from alll that wonderful sun streaming in the windows)…image-3

  1. Fantastic!! I’m at last joining some hookers here in FL!! Going to a P.Mc. Guild tomorrow, and a huge hook-in in Tampa Friday! Yeah! We have finally found a company that will be making our vinyls like yours! At least I hope they are as nice as yours!! We will also have them do a nice pergola attached to our lanai, hopefully it will get started in January.
    Love your enthusiasm and posts!
