Sunday Hook-in at Maren's

Isn't this just the most wonderful mermaid? Katie K. made this for her home in Cambria and I needed a photo for our calendar...I just love it!
Another piece by Katie...a floral pillow.
We welcomed a new member to our group...Anna, originally from Sudan and her first rug.
Here's Sue with her latest piece.
And Annie gets the award for most rugs hooked since our last meeting! This fun rug has depictions of all the rug hooks in her collection.
another Annie rug...this one a gift for a friend.
And Annie is still working on this rug for the Obamas....it spells out UNITY in the center squares.
Wouldn't it be cool to see this in the White House???
And here is Maren with her wonderful fabric collage...all hand stitched...love all the wonderful fabrics.
Succulents in Maren's yard..
Close up of Maren's pumpkins....
And a beautiful quilt top that Maren is working on....don't you love her fabric choices?
We had a great day hooking and sharing stories at Maren's sunny and art filled home. She spoiled us again with the best lunch...mostly from her garden....and an incredible carrot cake for dessert! It seems that I was the only one to do the "One Color" challenge, so I don't have any to show you...we had a few absent members and I'm hoping that some of them may have risen to the occassion and will bring them to the next meeting.
