Hooking weekend

These 6 lovely ladies joined me for a weekend of rug hooking, eating, drinking etc, etc, etc
This happens a couple of times a year and my posts are a record of our projects over the years. This was a particularly productive hooking weekend (sometimes there's more knitting or relaxing than hooking) with all of us spending most of the time at our hoops and frames although we also walked on the beach, sat on the deck and swam.
Lynn hooking on the deck.
Pam was working on a whimsical rug with some lovely bright colours.
Sue's was a large floral.

Heather was hooking a couple of Santas for Christmas in Paris.
Brit was working on the sky and mountain of her Scandinavian church (I can't pronounce what it is called let alone spell it)
Peggy was working on a geometric. She said it was as far as she could get from the "Fish Rug" that was her project at this, and many other hooking events, for years.
Lynn is nearing completion of her "cell phone rug".
I finished hooking this mat which was a geometric class that I took at the OHCG Annual and I did a bit of work on the Race Night Port Dover rug.
The weather was very cooperative; warm and breezy during the day and cooler and breezy at night. The food was, as usual, delicious and varied with some old favorites and some new experiments. It was a lovely weekend with hooking friends.
This last picture is of people at the Junction Summer Solstice working on the colouring banners that we made when I spent the weekend in Toronto helping Chris prep for the event.
Chris said that it was a popular activity with all ages.
