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.

Pumpkin Wool Applique

I've been way too busy lately! Between summer vacations, rug camp and filling orders, my poor blog has been neglected. On top of that I got the bright idea to start a new blog called Wild Rose Vintage which has been so much fun. On that blog I've been posting pictures of all sorts of vintage things.

This is my latest design in the Holiday issue of Create & Decorate magazine. Soon kits will be available on my website. I have all of the wool, I just need to make up kits and decide on a price. This is a small piece and easy to whip up in a few hours.

I just came back from a wonderful rug hooking workshop. I was at Show Me in Parkville Missouri with Nancy Blood as my teacher. What a beautiful setting and the food was the best! I had a wonderful time and I have a few pictures and more to write about soon as I find time to unload my camera!
