Was looking back at old Cape May photos and sadly I didn't take a lot of photos in the early years.  Or, could be because the photos were lost with the stupid camera using a floppy disc.  I was even less computer savvy at the time and wasn't knowledgeable about hooking up the digital camera  to a computer.     

Anyhoo....looked thru some oldies and found a couple rugs from 2008 I'd like to chat about.  I love this rug which was in the show ~ think the border is what makes my heart go pity pat than the birds; tho the birds are nice.  
Also love this Lucille Festa rug and until recently I owned the pattern but sold it because as it is larger than I enjoy hooking now.  
Another rug in the 2008 show was a Bev Conway.  Not sure what the name of the rug was ~ maybe Polka Dot Chickens?  Not sure.  The one below was hooked by someone else and purchased the pattern that year.
I hooked Bev's design but wanted my chickens on straw vs a single huge egg.  So this rug sits in my kitchen at the door leading to the back porch.
It's no secret I've complained about the humidity in Delaware and perhaps my being surrounded by woods has encapsulated me in a  bubble.  For weeks now I've run the dehumidifier hours on end for days at a time in each room  Then every couple days to another room in the house.  You wouldn't believe the total gallons of water I've poured from that wonderful machine.  Perhaps the lower humidity inside the house makes for better results of the A/C comfort.

Thought I'd try to get in ONE MORE POST in June.  Cannot believe it is July first tomorrow.  Guess I'll soon find out if there will be a Cape May rug camp as the final bill should be arriving any time.  I won't make my ferry reservations until I know for sure the camp is really a go.

Happy hooking everyone.

  4. I love the first rug too, because of the border and the spotted chickens too.I like that the tail feathers infringes on the border a little.
    I hope that you'll be able to make it to Cape May this year.

    Hugs, Julia
