I can’t think of a better way to spend a winter’s day in January than curled up in a cozy chair by a fireplace, surrounded by friends, and hooking, visiting and eating home made soup for lunch. That’s just what I did yesterday at Helen’s . We were surrounded by inspiring hooked pieces on her walls.
….this hooked by Deanne Fitzpatrick…and this wonderful tryptic also by her…….these finer hooked pictures…..
and delightful small pieces scattered about the room.
Ann was working on her famous stars…
….which sell faster than she can make them.
Cynthia is creating a piece inspired by the work of contemporary Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama and her illustrations of Alice in Wonderland.
Cynthia’s creativity, use of varied materials, and free form hooking, have me holding my breath to watch this unfold.
The beautiful fuchsia is a sari silk and fairly glows in real life.
You can see the wide variety of colours in the “white” background already.
Jeanne was sporting the necklace she made at Jennifer Mauuel’s workshop.
….while she has nearly completed the background of her “Four Seasons “.
Helen is hooking a piece inspired by by a “Happy Winter Solstice” card produced by the Syracuse Cultural Workers.
….it depicts night and day above and below the moon.
I was working on my Zentangle sampler.
….while Mary was corking ….
….with some beautiful colours
and Kathy was knitting a shawl…..while wearing a poncho she made…
….decorated with a beautiful hand made broach…
…and Wendy popped in later with her knitting
….what talented friends I have……….what an enjoyable day.
