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!!!)

Garden Rabbit

Will we ever see Spring???
It still feels like winter living in Minnesota, while most of the country is starting to feel warmer temperatures, more snow is coming for us.
It helps the cabin fever a little by starting a new hooked rug with colorful wools and a Springtime look.

This is my Garden Rabbit design, originally much larger but after a shop requested a smaller version, I liked this smaller size so well that I drew a pattern for myself and started hooking.

I wanted a gray or white rabbit so I settled on light gray, I thought pink and greens and a warm yellow background would be colorful. I have this darker gold wool I'd like to use up and it seems to be working so far.

I think I'll need to use a slightly lighter green for the stems and leaves, what I have so far may not show up well in that deep gold.

The wools used so far.,
to be continued....

Fall Runner and Proddy Flowers

The latest on the Fall Runner block of the month.
Karen made proddy flowers! I like it! It is so easy to do and you don't need a special proddy tool to to this. I did buy one years ago and all it does is pinch your fingers, no matter how careful you are. A thick shanked hooked will work just fine.
I like how it's coming along.

There is still time to join in, the basket of flowers is in the middle of the rug. There is still the left side to do with 3 mystery blocks remaining.
