A Hook In- Kennebunkport

I was lucky enough to attend a hook in, in Kennebunkport Maine.
I was suppose to leave Wed but snow. So early Thur morning down I went for 4 days. I took 3 unfinished pieces that have been a thorn in my side, some for years, to finish. The first one is what I worked on,on Star Island this past fall. I know it looks funny at the top by the light house,but truly it is nice and straight.

This rug is very special to me. I was lucky enough a few years ago to spent some time with a friend from Canada I met on my blog.
We met in Maine at my other sweet friend's (who is also my husband's cousin) for a fun weekend.
Kim gifted us with this rug depicting the three of us that Deanne Fitzpatrick designed for us and only us!!! 
I am so close to being done so I can hang this is a special place. 

And this a free rug from Cushings at Christmas time.
Donna also got to finish her rug that is the same. I wish I had taken a picture of it. It is kind of fun seeing the same pattern done by different people.

I am showing only small bits of a very large rug that a woman who was at the hook in designs herself. Look at this woodpecker!!!

This is turned but so amazing.

Even her ferns are amazing.
We didn't have the big throw down so not a lot of other rugs to show. 
Time away is always so wonderful with other hookers.
Lots of laughs and some wine, oh and margarita night that were yummy. And lots and lots of food..
I am home feet up watching my Patriots.
Have a wonderful week.

I'm jealous of the 'special rug' Deanne drew for you, Kim, and Alice.....think it was Alice. Kim told me about it many many months; maybe even years ago as fast as time goes by. Good job on all the pieces and now they are done.

Sounds like you had a fun time and got a lot done on your rugs.
I love the piece you did from Starr and the one your friend had made, that is really special.

Wow! Such beautiful hooking! Thanks for sharing the Deanne mat...I always wondered what the pattern looked like. :-) The pics of the woodland rug is making me wonder what that whole piece looks like too! Who knew wool could be so mysterious? lol!

What nice rugs! I remember when Kim had those rugs done. How nice to see yours almost finished.
What a nice thing to get to go do, I have never been to a rug hook in. I think it would be so much fun. I hope you have a nice week with out snow.

Hi Cathy, I remember when Kim had those rugs designed by Diane F. and some details of your adventure together. You're almost got that rug finished. Good for you. I wish Kim was still blogging. I hope that she will return to blogging again. She is well and her and Abbey are doing well...

Sorry I've been missing from visiting your blog. I had some computers issues that were addressed today. I missed commenting on so many blogs and I have some catching up to do.
Hugs, Julia
