Yes you can still order my patterns! Here's the info...
I decided several years ago that I would retire in 2016 but I just can't do it! But I am going to semi-retire so I have closed down my website and hopefully those of you who were not on my mailing list and came back to order a pattern, found my website was gone and googled Cabin Creek might find my blog!
I am listing patterns on Etsy, not everything but if you remember something you put off buying just contact me and I'll still draw it for you. I am currently only drawing on monks cloth.
The Dorr Mill store also carries some of my patterns.
How to find my patterns...
At the side bar on this blog you will see thumbnails of my Etsy shop, you can click on that.
Or search online for The Dorr Mill Store and click on patterns and then click on Cabin Creek Designs (they still have some of mine on linen!)
Or email me at
I'm also on Facebook, just search Cabin Creek
I accept checks or PayPal.
Thanks for understanding, I just dragged out my hooking project that I haven't touched since January 2013, I miss it and need to get back to what started me on this pattern business journey. (And maybe I'll get back to posting on this blog!!!)

Punch Needle Doily

Well, I'm not real sure what to call this but it's pretty. I found this on Etsy and couldn't resist buying it. It's old but I don't know how old, it is hand made using a punch needle tool and a nice thread with a sheen to it, not stranded embroidery floss. The lavender flowers have faded on the front. It has a wonderful feel. It measures 12" x 9". If anyone has an info please leave a comment. Please click on image for a close up view.

I do not have any comments to contribute about your 'find', but what a treasure!

I am thinking this is likely circa. 1920-1940's, could it be pearl cotton? (thinking of fibers available that time period) Have never seen such a beautiful piece in that size as I do dollhouse rugs, and one tends to have tunnel vision toward what they love. C

Hi Crissabit,

Thanks for the date and that seems to sound right. In case you come back here again, the thread appears to have a little sheen to it and it seems to have many fine ply's. Where there is a loose end it's sort of fuzzy. I don't know my threads every well other than cotton, wool and linen and it's neither of those. Thanks for the help!
