Nancy finished hooking another lovely chair pad …

Beth finished her lovely Maud Lewis piece…

and Karen finished her funky version of my Porcupine rug…

and this little shore bird mat…

Sheila’s first piece of rughooking (my Antique Flowerpot kit) – I think she did an amazing job…Welcome to the dark side Sheila 🙂

One of our guild members recently moved into a retirement home and during the clear out of her hooking stash this pattern was discovered. It dates back many years and was supposed to be hooked for her daughter but mom is no longer hooking. I was given the fun task of hooking the mat and truly enjoyed it… It is supposed to represent her daughter in her garden and has sentimental value and needed to be hooked…

and one that Marjorie hooked herself many years ago…

When my friend Diane was here with hubby after Christmas the boys made us fish out of scraps of barn wood and upcycled pallets and an old bead necklace. Diane painted one side of her fish and hung it – love the way it turned out…

And a few lovely pieces designed and hooked by Barb…

Barb also bought my mini punch needle piece, Shiver and framed him in a wonderful Barnwood frame that hmmm, I bet Hubby Paul made for her…

  3. So great to see all this creativity. The girl in the garden is so beautifully done.
    You mentioned that it was an old pattern, would it still be available do you think?
    I also have a fibre loving daughter who is obsessed with gardening (is even on U tube) and I would love to do this for my daughters 50th birthday.
    Many thanks. Helen

    Welcome to the world of rug hooking Sheila………you’re off to a great start with an amazing mentor!
    The display for the fish is such a great idea….plus, painting the other side was “brilliant”.
    Daughter in the Garden will become a treasured keepsake….
    I always enjoy seeing what others are “up to” – great offerings today – thanks!
