..........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.








Happy New Year!

Drop Spindle spinning and knitting out in the woods during a hike on a beautiful day with my talented sister who came to visit for Christmas.  

Are you ready for 2019?  Have you set some goals?  Either to finish the UFO's, or learn a new art form?  Make a plan and get prepared and go for it!





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!
