..........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.
Traveling in April is supposed to be, well, springy like weather, right? A late spring blizzard made me a day late to the North Central McGown Teachers Workshop in Dubuque Iowa! We made snow angels one night after the second storm of the week!
I am making progress on a primitive rug from a class at the workshop. Wide cut, primitive representation taught by Valerie Bergeman. Excellent class.
I will be attending the North Central McGown Teachers Workshop in Iowa next week!
