oh Squam. you never fail to intoxicate, rejuvenate and educate me. this was my 9th (!) time at this creative gathering on a loon-filled lake in the woods of New Hampshire. i just read my account of my very first Squam experience and it all holds true to this day. it never gets old.
of course i was most drawn to the crochet works, which were plentiful this year.
so great to finally meet rad Joetta Maue after so many years of knowing each other online. this is an embroidery by one of her students.
5 of my darling Sweetest Tunic makers. i always admire how Maya manages to capture her whole classes in photos. i always have a few who finish early and want to go dip their toes in the lake, and several who aren’t done until a little while after, so i can never seem to get the whole class at once.
this time our ice box was on the porch!
the effervescent Megan in her Squam smock from last year! i saw a bunch of smocks floating about all weekend, so heartwarming…
mandatory feet on dock shot with my cabin, Point of View.
and with hilarious Jeanne and dear Maya, who was also my roommate.
dappled daylight on the mossy path…
ice house! one of my (many) most favorite things.
super fun times with these two (you are gonna join in on #crochetsummer2014, aren’t you?) as well as so many others! shoutouts to Anna from Tolt, Karen of Fringe Association, and all the other peeps i met or saw again!
i’ll save the pics from my Collage Crochet class for another post, since i already couldn’t edit these photos down to just a few. and for all those who dream of attending Squam some day, be sure to get on the mailing list so you’re in the know when next year’s retreat is announced. they sell out quick and you DON’T want to miss out!
