A sisterhood

A few Saturdays ago hubby and I participated in the Hike for the Homeless in Bangor. 
It was a brisk 3.79 mile walk.

Ice on the Penobscot River

The Englewood Corner Crafters...Winterport Hookers met for the last time for the season; last Saturday. We had a full house and a fun crafter's yard sale. I picked up a couple of large bundles of wool! Several ladies brought some good quality stuff. I am tickled with what I purchased. I will share pics in another post.

 I got up early Saturday morning and made mini applesauce muffins to take. 
I was pleased that I had my act together...five minutes down the road I realized 
I forgot to pack myself a lunch. Hahaha. 

 It was so good to see everyone and their wonderful work. Sharing stories of our projects and plans for the summer. Talk of getting into the garden, ready to play in the dirt; setting up for camping, plans to meet for a mini road trips, family coming to visit and what is the next rug hooking or knitting project. We each have our circles outside of this circle that brings us together. Hmmmm, sounds like a design idea brewing in my head.... I love the connections we have with each other, how one inspires the other, the support given when one of us has a situation in our life's circle. It is a sisterhood I am proud to be a member of and welcomed into. It is more than just hooking/crafting together. I may appear quiet at some gatherings (I know a shock for those that know me) but I am absorbing so much that is offered during the conversations and sistership. There have been several connections made that brings my soul such joy knowing I have met and gotten to know these ladies. Looking forward to seeing them in September and hearing about their summer ventures.

 Lets see some of their beautiful, talented work!

Everything is beautiful but the vibrant colors in that runner are gorgeous. And I would take that braided rug in a heart beat!

Such talented friends you have. Pictures of rugs is inspiring no matter if they are in progress or pictures of finished rugs of a show. Thanks.
