|Seashore Scene Cousins Shore PEI|
So that is the reason I have been lying low and there have been no postings to my blog or website. I am enjoying my days by the sea and loving every minute of it. This is a gentle Island cradled by the sea and a place where I leave my heart every year. It is a place where I find a renewal of my creativity in the people I meet. It is their passion for their art which spurs mine whether it be in their rug hooking, quilting, painting or metalwork. The Island abounds with artists all so individual in their interpretation of their Island life.
This year I met some lovely ladies who personify Island life in their rug hooking. If you are on Prince Edward Island have a drive by their studio - Pastimes PEI. I had a lovely chat and of course picked up one of their patterns all drawn up called the "Cavendish Mat". It is a geometric which I have never hooked before and there are traditional colours to be used to tie it back to the Island but essentially is a scrap rug. I can't wait to dive into my stash of scrap wool and dig out some treasures to hook this one.
