Cheri is just getting started with this rug.  She is the talented lady who makes the hooked ‘lady’ necklaces (which I showed on an earlier blog). This large rug will be three ladies sitting in Muskoka chairs. One of them is this stunning red head.

Marion is doing the background of this beautifully shaded scroll

What Yummy colours…a crewel style design…the blue”flower” on the left is very reminiscent of one of the motifs in my hall runner (but much more delicately shaded).

I think this is Gail’s work…but I should have had her open it out so we could see the design . She creates her own patterns, and hand cuts the strips.  She is just starting this rug too.

Joanne’s piece is a representation of the four seasons with the wind blowing across…so creative!

What a homey wee cottage..I particularly like the treatment of the trees.

Cynthia was knitting  rather than hooking last week, but look at her little bag…(not sure if she uses it for her scissors, or ?? Mexican inspired…that’s a tiny portrait of Freda Kahlo (who could mistake those eyebrows)  Isn’t that amazing?

Cathy is working a Deanne Fitzpatrick pattern. I love the strong colours, and the background is wonderful !

Willa has finished her cat and crows, and is deciding how she wants to finish it. The cat has such personality!

These last two photos show a bell pull. The birds were hooked by Hilda (I assume quite some time ago) Someone else just finished the background for her…I’m sorry I don’t know who that was) 

I think I’ve said before that I live in a hooking Mecca. Our group meets each week, and there are other groups in the area. Huronia meets in Barrie, (25 miles south) another meets in Gravenhurst (20 miles north) and another in Midland (20 miles west)…the lake is to the east . Saturday I attended a hook -in hosted by Huronia, and held at the Simcoe County Museum in Midhurst. A great day of hooking. Good friends, good hooking, good food…..dreadful driving ( drove through blowing snow and white-outs both ways….you’ve got to love winter in Central Ontario).
