Work in Progress

Not my work in progress…alas…I am up to my eyes in finishing. This is some of the in-progress work of the Sunshine Rughookers. We don’t meet through the summer, so it is nice to catch up with people’s work when we get together again in September.

Cecelia has completed the body and grass surrounding her lion, and is beginning the background.

Luise is working on this wonderful derelict barn…I’m presuming it is for the barn project.

Jeanne is beginning a set of chair cushions. She intends to make each one different.

Edie is beginning this lovely old pump pattern. It is related to a long standing family joke.

The light in the windows of Isabel’s house make it look so inviting.

This is a large circular rug (I would guess at least 4 feet in diameter). It was donated, partially finished, and Bea Grant has organized it’s completion. (just has to be bound now). It is to be raffled off in the future.

Helen is almost finished her abstract. It is actually the edge portion of a red trillium which she has isolated….quite stunning…the vibrant colour doesn’t show to advantage in the photo.

I think this hearth rug is Diane’s (I may also be wrong). The background was dyed with tea to create an off white, mottled background.

Vida, who lives in Collingwood, was visiting for the day…wonderful to have visitors. She is originally from Newfoundland, and is working on this snowshoe scene from home.

Cynthia has just returned from a trip to Newfoundland, and her piece is inspired by the blueberries which were in season.

Fiona is working on this whimsical piece of her grand daughter, who loved to dress up in her brother’s clothes. They live in California….hence the palm trees, mountains, and water.

In the meantime…I’ve completed the binding on my hall runner, and I’m halfway done with Women in Hats. The dreaded zig zag stitching is done on all the unfinished pieces, and my index finger may never recover from all this whipping! Can’t wait to get back to actual hooking!!!
