Alfred Hooking Retreat Part One

This is on the last day as you can see Donna gave up hooking and was knitting socks. But as you can also see we had our token man among us. Such a brave man! He was a day person didn't stay over night. 

This rug was handed off to the lady who was working on it. I was partially hooked so she was working on finishing it, what a great job she was doing with it matching the other hooking.

This rug I think is in my future. How stinking cute is this rug!

This woman was sitting near us this was a picture of her family's lobster shack. As you can peek on the left is it going to have squares of her family's life. This is even more beautiful in person.
The colors in this rug are just amazing.

Can you believe that stone bridge????
This lady was sitting with us she is such fun and what a great rug!

The facilities are bare bones but very clean and neat.I starved all day today coming down from all the food from the weekend. I am also worn out it will be early to bed tonight. I have lots more to show you very soon.

I was at the fall Alfred Retreat last year! Small world. And I know the sweet and talented lady who hooked the stone bridge in Acadia National Park. Maybe we will run in to each other at a retreat in the future. All of the rugs are wonderful!

Had a great time as well....hope you'll be my partner for the next one as well. You took some great pictures. Love the acorn girl and I sure hope you make her. The shot of Jeni's rug came out great. Have a great Easter and give my best to the rest of the cousins.
