Hooking at Irish Beach

You know you're a fortunate person when you get to spend 4 days with lovely and creative friends in one of the most beautiful places in the world, the Mendocino Coast in Northern California. We hooked and talked, hooked and laughed, hooked and ate, hooked and walked, and hooked!

China brought bags and bags of worms to work on her portrait of her granddaughter.

Chris worked on three different rugs.....she came up with this design to use up her worms and scraps. It's spectacular!

With this as inspiration, how could we not feel creative?

This landscape has inspired an endless variety of artists.... and as you can imagine, young people enjoy this spot for many other reasons :-)

Looks (and sounds) like you had a wonderful time! I love Chris's rug - always looking for ways to use up worms - hope you'll share another picture of it when it's all finished!

What a beautiful place to go on a retreat.

The rug Chris is working on IS SPECTACULAR....very inspiring...I have lots of worms to use up, but am afraid I'll get bored with a simple geometric....this is genius!
