..........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.

Greenway Fiber Art Society

This is what my yard looks like when the Greenway Fiber Art Society meets at my home.  The weather was perfect for us to squeeze into my back porch for a day of rug hooking, wool appliqué, tatting, braiding, weaving, cross stitch, and more.  My spinning wheel was ready to use also if anyone wanted to learn!  

The Greenway Fiber Art Society is for anyone with an interest in wool fiber.  Rug hooking, spinning, weaving, wool appliqué, felting, and braiding, in addition to knitting, tatting, crochet.  So, here are pictures of some of the projects from Thursday. I did not get pictures of everything, but you can see what the group is working on.

For dessert we had apple pie bars with shortbread crust, and home-made salted caramel sauce. Yum.
