Winter seems to have arrived in Nova Scotia all in one week. I went with my daughters family to the local ski hill on Saturday and was reminded how I enjoy being inside when it is cold outside. I guess that is why I don't ski or snowboard. The above picture I captured of all the ski's and snowboards propped up while people ate at the restaurant inside or sat by a cozy outdoor fire. A lot of happy folks being able to get out on the fresh fallen snow.
I haven't had a chance to do any hooking this week. I did whip a bit on my Russian rug but mainly I was dyeing wool fabric and yarns. I bought a kit from Robin Whitford, I am taking a flower shading course using alternate fibres later this month. The kit was just lovely so I can't wait to get started.
In the mail this week; Joan MacFarlene has been on a hooking spree. This lovely rug below was made called Tony's Welcome Home, designed and hooked by Joan. Della's Rug Hooking Studio supplied the Heather's red wool fabric and it was whipped using Heather's red yarn. Take a look at the backside for Tony's secret message, a memory of the waves between her cousin and her. Thanks for sharing Joan.
Diane Benoit finished her Santa, free pattern from the Rug Hooking Magazine, Design by Janet Conner. It is awesome good job.
Have a great week everyone!
