Masquerade Anyone?

I spent the weekend at a Cyndy Duade masque class.
Here she is holding up a student's mask that they were working on.
This picture does nothing for it. It really was wonderful.

Sorry this is blurry but I got her just as she was turning. She is a Greek
girl so this was right on target. She had to leave early for her Greek Easter on

This one is by Theresa she has amazing talent and this was her
first hooking class ever!

This lady Grace was doing her mask in walderboro style
That is sculpted. Such a wonderful idea.

Cyndy showing construction of the mask she hooked.
The green is a hair clip in her hair.

Great color and a good idea being hooked by Pam.

I think this mask was being hooked by a girl named Sue.
I didn't get everyone I think there were about 18 of us in the class.
Some were doing punched maskques with yarn that looked great.
Yes I am working on finishing up my mask. I will post a picture
as soon as I am done. I am doing it for Miss B to use.
Speaking of Miss B she went to the science center with her mom and
Dad and her pepe. My daughter took some great pictures I will post next time.
The weather is wonderful but now we are high fire danger and need rain badly.
It looks like rain is moving in for the end of the week.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

What beauties! Thanks for sharing all the photos. Sounds like a great experience simply being there.

Very cool stuff. Not my style but still cool. I'm sure your mask for Miss Baby will be wonderful. I look forward to seeing it.
We don't have the fire danger, but could use some rain, too.
Hugs :)

The masks were wonderful. Don't know that I would hook one but sure it delightful to look at. Thanks so much for sharing.

I love all the beautiful face masks being worked on. They must be quick projects.
I hope that the rain will lessen the danger of fires. We have a ban on outdoor fires as well in our area, The ground is very dry.

Thanks for sharing.

Looks like a lot of fun! Beautiful masks! It was Greek Easter on Sunday. I didn't celebrate it with my Mom this year. Darn it! Now we need a pic of you with your handy work!

Something different for sure! I'm sure Miss B will like hers, too.

We are having rain today and tomorrow in northern VA so I'll hope it moves up your way soon!
