Welcome

..........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.

Needle cases anyone?

Only two weeks until the Country Roads Quilt Show in Ocala Florida!  We all need needle cases to store our favorite needles and pins.  I will have these kits available for you at the quilt show.  A perfect size to give wool appliqué a try!  

Stop in my booth and say Hello!

Country Roads Quilt Show

I am excited to be a new vendor at the Country Road Quilt Show in Ocala Florida!  For all the important details check out their website at crqocala.com/quilt-show-2018.

I will be playing in the dye pots over the next several weeks!  Last week I dyed brilliant reds and glorious greens for Christmas projects and some outrageous oranges for pumpkins to get you started on fall.

Be sure to stop in my booth and say HI!

I will have several wool appliqué kits and patterns available also.  

Once in a while you need several values of the same color.  Santa faces anyone!
