Wellllllll, not a good weather prediction for today and tomorrow – 10 hours of ice pellets and freezing rain. Thank goodness Gord (on my advice!) crunched up the driveway ice yesterday with the tractor and chains while it was still soft. So, right now it is like hmmm, corrugated tin on our road! Yeah… if the freezing rain does happen we will hopefully have a good crunchy base and should be able to get out tomorrow! Today, ahhhhhh playing in the dye pot, hooking and putting together all the wool to finish a rug for a friend who has lost her vision. That will be my project for next weekend’s retreat.
And now just a few reminders about our Cabin Fever Hookin which is full – if you are registered and sadly cannot come please let us know. Hopefully we will have fabulous weather and good driving for all that day:

Date – Tuesday, July 2
Time – 10 – 3:30
Location – NEW LOCATION North Crosby Community Centre (not the Lions Club Beach House in Westport) just off highway 10 outside of Westport
We are trying out a new location this year – plenty of parking, big open room with a kitchen and great lighting. Not on the beach but there is plenty of shaded lovely outdoor seating for those who prefer to be outdoors.
A few lovely pieces to share:
Danyelle’s truly beautiful pieces…
Kim started hooking a few weeks ago – last friday she came with her loon kit finished and we worked on putting it together as a pillow. She left with worms and a pattern for a tea cosy that we drew out and 4 days later hmmmmm almost done! Do you think she is hooked? 🙂 … Diane finished her 2 snow shoe pieces – the left is an adaptation of one of the Karla Gerard patterns I carry and on the right is an adaptation of a Shelly Atkinson pattern I carry. I love how these look on the vintage snowshoes I let her buy at the junk store! 🙂 and check out the tiny snowshoes she made to attach to her rug… Sandra hooked my River Otters rug and ohhhh it is so wonderfully primitive and antique looking. Sandra has such a knack for making a rug look like it was hooked in the 1800’s…
