Camp Poose

Every year I make one gift that's a major investment of time. This year the "lucky" recipient is Tad, my daughter's SO, soul mate, partner. I'm hooking a chair pad of the family camp. This camp, in the backwoods of Maine, was originally built by his grandfather whose nickname was Poose, hence the camp's name.

This is what I started with. I printed out the picture in thirds and transferred the "essence" to monks cloth.

This much hooking took me a week.

This is the end of week two.

The saga continues.....
