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!!!)

Basket of Daisies

I started on a small mat yesterday just for fun.
I wanted to hook something that I could finish in less than a week and I've been in the mood for flowers!

Maybe it's the long dull winter that has me wishing for spring so I've been drawing up new patterns with design is a huge dragonfly (with a few flowers).

Here's part of the design and the wool that I have used.

The orange strips are not quite that orange, more of a rust shade.
I used the off white for the flower petals, the green for leaves and a solid and dyed green as stems (not shown here).
The pretty camel is the basket and the dark blue was a hand dyed.
Everything but the background is hooked using a #5 cut so that I can get a little more detail.
The background and border will all be done with a #6 cut.

I haven't quite decided on the border color yet but I'll post it when I'm finished...I hope in a couple of days. Since I took the pictures earlier today, I've finished hooking the flowers, the background around the flowers and the basket.

Thanks for stopping!
