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