Welcome

..........to Shady Hill Rug Hooking

Landscape painting using hand-dyed wool

  

My website name describes where I live. On a hill, shaded by old oak trees, in a home with a beautiful porch where I can hook rugs.

The art of traditional rug hooking has been around for hundreds of years. Creating a hand hooked rug is still being done today as it was long ago, with the simple tool of a hook and strips of cloth.  Now it is considered an art form. Rug hooking has no limit for creativity and imagination.

I hope you enjoy looking at the hand-hooked rugs, hand-dyed wool, rug hooking patterns and appliqué patterns that are on the following pages.

This came out of the oven....

This is what my casserole dye project looks like now that it is ready to use.  The picture below shows it ready to go in the oven to steam for an hour.  Casserole dyeing is kind of fun, just to play and splash the colors around one layer at a time.
