Star continued

This picture was taken by my fellow hooker,Lauri Troughtman, She
Takes wonderful pictures! Not a bad place to sit and think. Star Island so peaceful and beautiful. 

These rocking chairs are on all the porches looking at the ocean.

Enlarge this picture, this tree is full of Monarch butterflies!!! I have never seen so many in one place!

There are lovely stone buildings on Star Island and the apple tree makes it perfect.

Now for the reason we were on the Island in the first place.
We had two new rug hookers with us. Love how she did the stone.

This was this new rug hooker's second piece, wonderful work!

This is done by a long time hooker Sara she is taking from a french Canadian children's book. Beautiful work!

This is by Lauri Troughtman her colors are wonderful and this is a larger piece.

Stair risers and some smaller pieces by my partner in crime Donna! Great job as always!

I wish I could remember this girl's last name her work is amazing!This was her dog that has passed away. 
I know her as Barbara from Maine.

Our Fearless leader Pam Bartlett! Her specialty is animal eyes.
Yes it is, Perfect!

This is also from Pam Bartlett great color.

And this precious rug had us all in tears! This is Pam's son who passed away a few years ago. This is from a picture of when he was a little boy. Oh my heart...

And this sweet purse was done by Sara great job and colors.

Of course you can not go to star with out having lobster!
Donna and Pam showing off their lobster before we all dig in!!!

We did a gift swap while on Star and I got this mug. I just love it! and yes we should all keep calm and hook on.
Thank you for visiting 
Have a great week!!

This looks like the perfect place to enjoy your craft and the peace of nature! You and your friends are true artists. The pieces are amazing. Then there are the ones that bring a tear to your eye. What a great time. I hope you had a blast! Oh, and lobster? Yes please!

Wonderful photos and even better memories. Pam's rugs are just incredible! That owl's eye...WOW! Just wow!!! And those lobsters!!!! I am not sure I have seen any that big before!!!!! Star Island looks amazing. Perhaps another destination I will place on my bucket list of places I want to, but never will, get to. It is good to be able to live vicariously though. ~Robin~

You are so lucky to have this beautiful place by the sea to go hook with your friends. The rugs are all beautiful. Those lobsters make my mouth water. I haven't had lobsters this year and I'm craving it.

Thanks for sharing your fun adventure with us.
Hugs, Julia

Love the hooking. I am supposed to be at a HOOK IN in New York tomorrow but the border is still closed to Canadians so I cannot go. So sad. I was really looking forward to it.
