Finally! I remembered to take my camera to a Sunshine meeting, so I can share what my hooking friends are up to. As usual, there’s a wide variety of wonderful work underway.
Jean is working on a Maude Lewis piece. I love those oxen…they have such personality.
Our creative Cynthia, is hooking a “wonky” Christmas tree. She intends to cut it out and applique it to a blue silk background. She has used a variety of materials as well as yarn to create the “bling”.
Gail is also hooking a “wonky” Christmas tree.
….this one quite large, and also using a variety of hand cut materials. The reds she spread out to choose from are spectacular..
That hot pink is to die for!
Mary is creating a Christmas tree hot pad…I suspect it will be used before long.
Linda is also hooking a “hot pad”…(and I just now realized it should be rotated ….since the tea is actually being poured into the cup)….sorry Linda.Sitting beside her was this amazing little bag she made to keep her tools in. The flowers are done in “Quilly” by rolling up strips, sewing through them for shape, then sewing them to the background, which is then hooked. Oh I wish I had more patience with creating “little things”.
Speaking of “little things”, Cheri is creating more of her very popular “lady” necklaces. They are bought up as fast as she can make them.
Our other Gail is hooking colourful daisies…
Luise is finishing her little piece done in memory of Hilda Hayes (using Hilda’s wool)
….she’s also finishing up the wings of this beautiful 3-D angel.
Fiona is working on a piece she began at a workshop with Deanne Fitzpatrick….instructions were….draw something important to you, and draw it BIG.
….so this is Fiona and her husband standing on their dock in front of the Green River (just started….green of course). It will have two borders…the second having a variety of wild flowers common in this area. I can’t wait to watch this wonderful piece develop.
Karen is creating this path to??? . I’m not sure if she will eventually tell us, or leave it to the imagination.
This musical piece is for Liz’s grandson in New Zealand.
Jeanne is working on the background of this piece which has all of her grandchildren’s names.
Jeanne acquired this piece at a sale at RUG. It had been a from a workshop on landscapes, and a bit of it was already hooked. Rather than end up with seven small pictures, she decided to hook the four seasons, plus an evening and morning sky, and dedicate it to her grandchildren in one large rug. I hope they don’t fight over who gets it.
Apparently this Hex symbol was supposed to be done in primary colours, but the hooker’s preference was for more subtle tones..
Isabelle found her sweet primitive bunny on a sales table as well.
This exquisite Initial has Waldoboro work in the centre.
….and this geometric will become a colourful hall runner.
Edie continues with her floral rug…
….while others knit ….
….and Judi was sorting worms.
All of this was happening at our wonderful new location….Rotary Place…..
….the windows on one side look out on…..
….that’s right….a hockey rink….and on the other side…
Yup! ….another hockey rink. Now what could be more Canadian than that!
