My partner in crime and I headed to Old Orchard Beach Maine for a weekend hooking retreat. Old Orchard is very much an old-time resort town. I used to go there as a kid and as you know it has been a very long time since I was a kid and oh the changes! We stayed at a Christian children's summer camp, while there is a lot more than that going on that is the main focus, I think.
Donna and I always exchange small gifts when we see each other.
She painted a picture of my house on a small box. Along with some wool and goodies in the box. I always love her gifts. We always room together and laugh until we just can't anymore.
I won some silent auctions. I did get caught up in the excitement and got way more than I should have. But maybe this will keep my strips of wool organized HA,HA,HA I start off good but never finish that way,
I also won some wool I need to stop with the wool already!!!
I believe this is done by our leader Lauri Troutman
Along with this smaller rug but look at the border not an easy bind.
This is by my room mate's Donna she does have a cottage by the sea.
I know this is done by Susan but I do not remember her last name but how darling is this rug!!!
And can you tell she hooked this one too same wonderful color.
I do not know who hooked this rug but this is not an easy rug to hook!
This lovely rug and I am sorry again there were not names on them when I took the pictures. she looks like a woman from the 20s
A great stash buster.
I love these mittens and dare I say I may attempt a pair when I get my rug done.
This rug is just darling!!!!Look at the turtle and mushrooms with the bunny!!
And this bad picture of Rachel's darling small rug.
the wheels are a silver thread and she had wonderful bike tassels!
I accomplished a lot on my rug which I will show later. I have more rugs to show.
While it was wonderful to be away it is wonderful to be home.
Thanks for the comments on my dump finds post I will get back to you soon!
have a great week
