The SNOW arrived here in Montreal with a wallop! We received a total of 28 centimeters; just enough for it to be a challenge to navigate the city. Luckily, I commute to and from work by subway.
With all of this snow around it is a perfect time to surround myself with lots of wool. This weekend is the regular monthly Hookin of our local hooking group called - Les Tapissiers de St. Henri / The St. Henri Rug Hookers. We usually meet the second Saturday of each month, with the summer months off.
The St. Henri Rug Hookers were fortunate enough to have had Amy Oxford http://www.amyoxford.com here in Montreal for a Punch Hooking workshop this past October. I have been spending some of my creative time in the dye pots - one of my favorite activities. I have been in the process of planning and dying for my first punch hooking project after my learning piece. Here is a sampling of some of my recent colors.
