OFF TO THE OLD FORGE HOOKIN IN OTTAWA…

Welllll, spring has finally arrived. I know this because THE ICE IS GONE. This is the latest we have had ice on the lake but it finally turned to slush and sank on Saturday. It was soooo lovely to drive around the bottom of the lake and see reflections on the water instead of just mushy looking ice. Of course, the loons are out and about again at 2 in the morning, the geese are honking and ohhhhh we saw a wonderful beaver swimming right up against the shore line in the bay. Blackflies have not started YET so it is lovely to get out and clean up some of the winter mess (in between hooking!!!).

And with the advent of spring of course many shows are coming up in the next few weeks – both rughooking, general fibre as well as some non fibre shows. So I thought I would take this opportunity to share a few with you…

This Saturday is the Old Forge Rughooking Guild’s annual hookin in Ottawa. I know some of you will be there – this is always a fun hookin with lots of great show and tell and I believe 7 vendors this year.

The Saint Henry Rug Hookers are hosting their exhibition again this year… Every two years this prolific group has a wonderful display of hooked rugs and punch needle pieces…


Although this has nothing to do with rughooking, my friend Sheila is hosting a fun day in her lovely gardens with 13 artists in attendance – a lovely opportunity to pick up something unique for your garden…

 

May 25 is the date for the Prince Edward County Fibrefest in Picton Ontario. You can find more information on their website – tons of vendors and activities and demos and workshops – a fun day for all… http://fibrefest.ca .

A few finished pieces to share – Cynthia finished her punch needle of one of the Karla Gerard patterns I sell – this was her first piece and it turned out beautifully…and Louise finished binding her lovely leaf rug – her own design…
