More Cape May 2015 Fun

There were so many other photos to share that I thought there should be two posts.
 Top design is a runner designed and hooked by Kay Leisey ; the Patriotic Sampler is a design by Cammie Bruce and hooked by Marion Wilson.
 Sheep over the Moon designed by  Joan Gerwig and hooked by Nancy Tiffany.
Spanish Princes, another huge rug hooked by Cheri Reid, and she is a really fast hooker.
Spots designed and hooked by Cammie Bruce.
 Prairie Santa hooked by Betty Ann Brittingham.
 Pumpkin Trilogy.
Pumpkins and a black cat.
Judith Phillips designed and hooked this rug named Resistance.
 Trick or Treat and Smell my Feet are Lori Brechlin's designs drawn by Spruce Ridge Studios.  My pal Deb added her own colorful spin to the designs.
Above are two pieces designed and hooked by Cammie Bruce.
1846 Turkey at the top is a design by Anne Nichols which was in a old issue of Needl'Love.  Can't read the information on either so don't know who designed or hooked the sampler.
Above are two Magdalena designs I drew and hooked.
The striped cat is Hester, a design by Lori Brechlin which was in an issue of a magazine.
Top left is Hobo Joe, a design by Lucille Festa and was designed as a cut-out but I chose to make it a rectangular shaped piece.  The crow was my design hooked Magdalena style.
Sally Raub hooked the floral above.
Have seen the above antique rug numerous times and is on my 'to do' list but still haven't hooked it.  This one was hooked by Kay Leisey.
Pear Tree was hooked by Carol McKay and designed by Lori Brechlin.

I've told you how much fun we have at Cape May ~ actually all rug camps are fun.  But in the year 2015 at this camp I never laughed so hard.  Here are a bunch of us sitting on the front porch about an hour before dinner.
To the left is me, Cheri Reid, Amanda (Kris Miller's sister) and Judy Phillips who was the instigator of all the laughter.  We were enjoying a delicious frozen marguerita. 
To the right of Judy is Jill in the blue and white, and Mary Lou Bleakley (my first rug hooking teacher) howling with laughter.
And to the right of Mary Lou is Kris Miller and Elise (Mary Lou's daughter).

We were having so much fun and you can see the front porch is empty.  So Linda finally had to come out and see if we planned to eat dinner.  That was probably the first time I've EVER been late for a meal there ๐Ÿ˜„
My pal Deb is there somewhere I'm sure... maybe this side of Elise.

Believe it or not I still didn't get all the rug pictures posted on this blog post either.  Do you want me to do another post of rugs from this year or move on?

  9. Great rugs. I really loveCammie Bruce’s Designs. They are such fun.

  10. Ok....hands down, Hester is my very favorite.... Might have to try to track that pattern down. I am also very drawn to those quilt-square like designs of Cammie's..... So good to see so much laughter. Wouldn't it be nice if that could have bottled and pulled out for times like these? ~Robin~
