Product Description

Here are the newest patterns. I love designing and so often wish I could clone myself to have one of me just designing full time. The ideas come far faster than I can keep up with.

She Had To Fly
The story behind She Had to Fly is an overview of my life from an early stage in my company and a Celebration of my 15 years of designing. When I drew my first design it came at a time when there had been a series of crises. It was a time that was both sad, stressful and joyful. I was starting my very own rug hooking design business! Fast forward a few years and another crisis forced a huge change in my life that propelled me into leaving a 30 year marriage and moving. It was another time of stress, fear and joy and the freedom to fly with my dreams for my business. The idea for this design came after that transition and has been germinating for a few years. I chose this time to draw my design in honor of my Anniversary and journey of the last 15 years. It is full of symbols that have meaning to me and I will include them in a Legend for you. This design is all about facing your fears, challenges, going after what matters to you with both hope and faith in yourself.. Just believe!

Vintage Pumpkin Love
My favorite Vintage truck is filled with my Fall favorite of Pumpkins! They're such a happy sight to see in the Fall. You can hook this in a primitive, traditional or funky style. Imagine velvet pumpkins and funky yarn for the flower centers or silk flower centers. What about a chunky yarn for the pumpkin stems...lots of possibilities.. There are so many choices in pumpkin colors such as Tangerine Tango, Blooming Pumpkin, Joyful Orange, and my newest orange Tomato Spice. For the pumpkin flowers Marigold Fields or Golden Love would be pretty.

Grampa's Tractor
The first tractor my grandfather purchases was a 1936 Fordson manufactured by Ford in England & Ireland. The name switched to Ford in 1939. This tractor is still in my family. The tractor made the life of a farmer a little easier. Still a hard life and now more efficient. Although I don't own any I enjoy seeing vintage vehicles of all kinds.

A Murder of Crows
A group of crows is called a "murder", hence the name. I find it fascinating to watch the birds in my backyard and especially crows. You can have a lot of fun with this rug! The border would be a great place to use up worms from your stash. I've dyed a piece just for the crows in this rug called "Just Crowing". Look in Hand Dyed Wool/Dark/Just Crowing.
