April Showers

Well, our little corner of New Brunswick
has hit more flooding...
could the waters at last be receding?
I shot this of our town square in the foreground.
Behind the trees? The river!
All connected now.
The white bits are chunks of ice.

But (seemingly) timed perfectly with the yearly floods
is our local, annual Highwater Hook-In.
It was held in a new spot: a huge church gym with plenty of light.
Pots of tea, muffins, fruits, sandwiches, and cake filled our tums
while raffles and hooking and chit chat warmed our spirits.
Our attendance was down by a good third due
to closed roads, but here are some samples from
the rug exhibit.

Love the bright red-orange one
This is quite big and attached to a supportive wood frame
Complete with real checkers!
William Morris winner
I'm a sucker for geometrics
See above comment!
Santa takes centre stage
Another very large work of art!
This is a small runner made entirely from someone's winnings at Left, Right, and Centre!

So you'd think I'd have won a raffle basket given
that my chances were high from low attendance.
No indeed.
But I bought fab fudge and shopped two vendors there.
If you haven't experienced the fun of a hook-in
why not organize one yourself?
Have a sunny weekend!!!!

Wow, some talented hookers there. Always love a rug show. Sorry you are having to endure flooding ~ there's been a lot of that going around lately.

Youzers on the flood waters. This happens every year? Amazing rugs!!! Janice said...

Yes we have some extent of flooding of the St John
River. This happens after the “freshette” meaning when the
ice breaks up in spring and begins to move down river.
