A very special weekend.......

A Hookers Dream!

There certainly was a lot of Hype leading up to the 
Secret Hookers Weekend
and I am happy to report that it was every bit as enjoyable as I thought.
Having met Cathy of AcornHollow.blogspot.com only a few times (she is Family)
and never meeting Kim of MilliesMats.blogspot.com 
we sure hit it off.
(And no she was NO danger to us at all)
We had a great time with lots of laughs, lots of wool talk and lots of food and wine.

This is a picture of our first introduction.
I'm not sure but I think this could be the beginning of a long friendship.
We started the weekend with a few nibbles of cheese and crackers
and opened our first bottle of wine.
Then we were off to the FishermansCatch.com down at the harbor
for some seafood.
Clam chowdah, lobstah rolls and scallops. Yummm.

The following day we started our wool trek at WoolandGoods.com. 
Cathy Spellacy the owner was thrilled to meet new fellow hookers from
Nova Scotia and Northern NH. She showed us some antique rugs that she had
and one was hooked with JUTE.
That's right....I've never seen that before and I can"t imagine how hard 
that was on the hands. Very interesting.
Next was a stop at StonewallKitchen.com for some gourmet foods.
Always fun to try their samplings.

Here is Kim and Cathy standing under the wisteria.
Their gardens are just beautiful
Our 3rd stop was over to CampWool.com over in Kennebunk, Me.

Lots and lots going on in that little shop!
Again the store attendant was thrilled to meet my new friends and have us visitng.
Well.....ok....I must admit it was mostly about Kim especially when
she found out she was from Nova Scotia. 
It was then that we told her about our very special GIFT and that set her off!
That's right..we are special!!!
Kim brought us a one of a kind....hand drawn....original
Deanne Fitzgerald from Hookingrugs.com pattern
drawn exclusively for the three of us.
Now I call that pretty darn special.
It has 3 ladies hooking, with wool in hand and cocktail glass.
It is fabulous.
Thank You again so much Kim,
that was so thoughtful of you.
4th stop was to W.Ccushing.com in Arundel Me. I go in there quite often
so we all got a huge welcome from Guillian and Gloria.
Here we did a little more 
boasting about our "gift" and the girls were so excited. they are dying to see it.
Well, maybe I'll bring it in at some point.

5th stop and My final legg of this trip was Lunch.
Now where would you think that 3 Hookers would go for eats?
That's right...a biker bar...Bentleyssaloon.com 
Cathy and I had the best lobster BLT ever and Kim had the Fish and Chips.
What a fun place...with a hog that one could ride and lots of Victoria Secret merchandise
hanging from the rafters.
Again lots of laughs.

The following morning was time to say Good Bye to my new friends.
Cathy was off with Kim to Dorr Mill woolens in NH...Cathy back home
and Kim was headed to Vermont to visit with family.
It was a short visit but hope that future visits are longer and become an annual thing.

I am hoping that Cathy and I get the chance tom spend a little more time together. 
Though she has been family for years now we just never got the chance to connect
and boy is that ever my loss. What a lovely lady.
Summer is coming and maybe we can catch up again when she's in Maine.

Thank you ladies for the lovely gifts...love all the wool and other goodies
It has been such a pleasure
As for you readers I hope I have not bored the crap out of you.
Hope you'll all be back...love hearing from you.

till we meet again.................................
