Lois J. MorrisDock This piece was inspired by a picture I had taken somewhere outside of Portland, Maine. I just put it together one afternoon when I was wanting to hook but didn’t have a pattern hanging around to hook.

In Memory of Jeanne Osler_
It is with a heavy heart we say farewell to Jeanne Osler, a member of BHCG for nearly 40 years. In the days when you had to hook a rug with 9 flower panels before acceptance into the Guild, Jeanne was determined to join despite her lack of interest in the rug itself. Her heart was instead passionate for a butterfly rug she had seen and that saw her through to the end of the requirement. She completed a wide array of classes taught at the Guild from fine shading, to crewels, carving flowers and a Cheticamp picture frame amongst those that I’ve seen. She was a skilled rug maker and designed her own rugs too. One of her favorites was of a lighthouse scene. Jeanne was an active member even at the end of her time with us. She got us making and participated in the “Tuit” giveaways at our Annual picnic and always encouraged members. Rest In Peace our friend, we will miss you.
