Nova Scotia hookers, very skillful indeed

We stopped in Cheticamp at an Acadian museum where they make hooked rugs (Sue was much faster than me, and looked less confused - pics are in her post), and then at a Hooked Rugs Crafts shop (or so says the roof). The lady that runs the place, Lana, was very friendly and made Sue and I even more jealous of people living there. She had excellent stories about her cats and her work, all while hooking a custom rug. She was extremely quick, especially remarkable after trying it ourselves earlier in the day. Apparently some of the folks that hook the rugs object to being called hookers, but I'm in favour and some of the hookers including her don't see any stigma attached to the label.
