Hooked by Faith Webster

For those who know me, speechless would not come to mind, however today I am just that. Faith Webster, of Cape Neddick, sent me an image of the finished hooked rug "Spring Lobster" she has been working on all Winter, and it's stunning, just stunning. 

Faith contacted me last Summer about creating a large format version and I couldn't resit, "A hooked lobster?", sure I said without hesitation. A couple months passed when a small packaged arrived with a hooked version of "Long Island Blue Sea Glass" as a gift, I was amazed, impressed, in awe and thought how amazing the Spring version will be.

Faith's father was a lobstermen and with her friends hook for fun. "This will be fun to do, as long as I'm above the sod!" she mentioned while bringing a smile to my face.  She is part of a rug hooking guild in Portland and York and occasionally shows her work, not long ago at Bowdoin College.  Recently Dahlov Ipcar has given Faith and her friend permission to do one of her paintings, her choice, "Cats Entwined", can't wait to see it! 

Thank you Faith!
