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.

Hook-in pictures

Wonderful day for a hook-in a couple days ago.  It was a challenge for me but I stopped talking long enough to take some pictures of the works in progress.

Pumpkin time - new pattern by Threads that Bind

Fun collection of great pumpkins for wool appliqué all in one package.  I could not resist, had to make one right away.  I used an old yarn bobbin for a stand.  Take a look at the stem, it is a deer antler tip.  I added the leaf using hand-dyed wool and perle cotton for embellishments.  The back is an empty slate - two buttons for the spider body and stem stitches for the legs.

Let's see what you can do with this pattern.  Available in the online store!
