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!!!)

Rug Camp, Parkville Missouri

I had way too much fun!
I attended the Show Me Rug Hooking Workshop in Parkville, Missouri last week and this is one of my small rugs from class with Nancy Blood. I have a thing for toads and frogs and when I spotted this in Joan Moshimer's catalog of patterns I just knew I had to hook it.

I knew I needed help with the toad and the toadstools. I think he turned out pretty well...Nancy named him Ambrose T. Toad. All wool is a 3 cut and the toad and toadstool are shaded. The leaves are assorted pieces of spot dye and the background is a dark hand dyed dirt color.

I can't wait to get back to it and finish it. I have 2 more small shaded rugs in a 3 cut that are not as far along as this one, I'll post them another time along with pictures from camp.

Victoria Ingalls was there and her students were hooking gorgeous rugs. Would I like to take a class from her!!! Maybe next year.

I love the toad and mushroom design and it looks like you did a great job with the #3 cut. JB
