..........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.








A little display at the library

The Belleview Florida  library asked me to bring in some of my items for display for the month of September!.  Some of my hand-dyed wool is on the bottom, a few rug hooking pieces are hanging and on the shelves.  I took my gold scarf that I made on my rigid heddle loom.  A knitted felted bowl (finally learned the double pointed needles so pretty happy with that).

If you are in the area stop in and take a look!






I see a bear design coming up!

We were in Alaska on an EPIC adventure!  Here is one of the bears we saw on our way to Denali.  Kind of a friendly guy, though I think getting out of the bus would be a bad idea!

All orders placed while we were away will be sent out this week.  Thank you for your patience.

Thank you to all who have registered for the Spring Fiber Fling!  It will be here before we know it!


More pictures coming soon, we have so many to sort out.
