Oh boy what fun it is to go to Rugs by the Sea rug camp in Cape May. It's wonderful to visit old friendships from previous camps as well as meeting new people.
It was great to see old friend Lynne Fowler again, who was attending this week and in Jen Manuel's class. I'll show you Lynn's rug from Jen's class as well as others in progress hooked in her class a few posts from now. Meanwhile, let me show you the awesome STORY RUG Lynne hooked and was in the rug show.
In addition to the rug Lynne also provided a commentary for people to understand the story of her youth. It is a very poignant and introspective read, one which will make you think about hooking your own story. Lynne, I'm still feeling the emotion of your rug and not sure that I could do it for myself. It was a wonderful rug and story.
Rugs and Pugs told me that Dawn, a friend, would be attending camp and to 'say hello' if I ran into her. From left to right is Dawn, Diane, Cynthia, Doreen and Rose.
Then, looked ahead of us to see who that might be. Immediately wanted to check the name tag on said b!+%#. OMG, that was Dawn. Then told Dawn I knew all about her from Lauren that she'd be there. We all became new friends and was even invited to join the Ghost Tour which I declined to stay behind with my roomie Deb. They had a great story to tell when they returned and I purchased the book which those gals told me about. More about ghosts and orbs later.
And here are some of my old friends it was great to meet with.
Since it is such a nice day, the people who are normally at their work areas must be out in the porch.
I'm still going thru my photos, cropping, naming and will eventually post more rug photos. You wouldn't believe how many photos I've taken and when they are posted would like to tell you who hooked what so that takes checking out the photo and renaming them.
Have a great evening and happy hooking.
