If you have never, you should consider attending a rug hooking retreat whenever you can. They are simply fabulous besides no house work nor making a meal, the socializing with other like minded people and enjoying each other's company and hooking until our hearts are content! I was privileged to attend the Past Time Matters rug hooking retreat in PEI last week, it was simply fabulous! This group of ladies welcomed us 'odd balls', Diane and I with open arms. I truly appreciate the support shown by these group of ladies. A few pictures below of our week and projects on the go. This group is hosting a hook-in at the Lutz Mountain Heritage Museum, October 14, 2023, be sure to reserve your spot with Shelley Lipscombe at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Helen's progress on her Crazy Chick.
A rousing game of 'Left, Right, Center' was had.
Our fearless leader, Shelley Lipscombe, kept us busy all week. She taught us how to make a Yorkshire button. It was fun to do, see below result of my work.
The rug at the beginning of this blog is of my St. Nick project that I had started the beginning of this month with Ruth Downing. I was a passenger for a long drive yesterday to Houlton, ME and back to pick up more rug hooking supplies and I was able to get the edges of this rug crocheted.
In the mail this week; Lori-Ann Lingley stopped into our retreat last week in PEI to visit and showed off her finished rug, pattern by Linda Marchbank based on a Linda Harrison painting. It is lovely Lori-Ann, thanks for sharing with us.
Shelley Myers completed another Vera's Tree's rug, this time for her daughter but in browns rather than black. Lovely Shelley thanks for sharing.
Shelley and I hope to see you tomorrow in Northport at the Northport Community Center for our annual hook-in. I will be there vending with all of Della's Rug Hooking Studio's fabulous supplies.
Have a great week everyone!
