..........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.
