Our weekend retreat (Hookin and no Cookin) was fabulous as ever. It is always a thrill to get together with good friends who all love what we do whether it be hooking, punching, knitting, crocheting or felting – there was a lot of different stuff going on but we were all excited and inspired. We missed a lot of our usual group but welcomed some new members who we know had a great time. So without further ado, some pix to share…

  2. Found your message when I got in from a walk. Thanks for sharing these lovely lovely pieces. I would so love to do an Iawah hooking weekend again. Perhaps it is in my future. I can dream can’t I? Best to all. Sending my thoughts to the Iawah gang.

    I like the idea of using old t-shirts. What size strips did she use? Did she just tear the shirts into strips?

  4. wow oh wow lots of wonderful talent!
