I've been hooking away at this mat by
P is for Primitive and have come this far.
I like the way that the images come right up to the borders.
Last weekend we took our rv
on the last trip of the season.
We drove down to Boothbay Harbour, Maine.
What a lovely lovely spot!
And what lovely lovely people!
We had planned to set up camp there and then
drive into Camden, Maine to hike but there were
AMPLE paths around Boothbay.
There are so many little causeway roads to small islands
which are covered in pines and craggy rocks.
Lucy is limited due to arthritis but she had a blast
And here is a tip-- take a wander into thrift shops in the place
you are touring.
Often you can find local pottery and art for a fraction of the prices
of the area boutiques.
The thrift store I went into had paintings of ships and
lots of lobster knickknacks but look what else I found (and bought):
The Heirloom Rug design is old and on burlap
but for $2 is a bargain.
I will trace it out onto linen.
The book was $1.99 and will be donated to our
hooking group's library.
A Fredericton friend dyed these pieces of wool
All I know is that she used both fresh and dried leaves
and old iron nails soaked in something.
I'm very attentive.
Aren't they works of art?
Unfortunately our home is still on the market.
We get less than 5 trick-or-treaters each Halloween
and I want to live in a neighborhood with loads of trick-or-treaters
which means kids and community.
