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 cabincreekdesigns@gmail.com
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!!!)

Wildwood part 2

Hurray! I'm back at it! It's been 3 1/2 years since I worked on this rug! 
I thank all of you for all of your orders and the last 3 years have been busier than ever but it's time for me to cut back and get back to what I haven't been doing.

I was a little lost on this rug, I loved almost all of the colors but the blue just wasn't working for me. There are small 'padula' flowers scattered all around and I kept thinking they needed to be a light color so that they wouldn't pop and detract from the other flowers.
Finally I spotted a beautiful dark sort of raspberry wool in my stash, it has a few gold threads running through it, gave it a try and that did it. It's dark but it works! 
You just never know until you try!
I reworked some of the large gold flowers too and added a little 'life' to them by adding a colorful check that had a touch of light turquoise in the middle of each petal.


You can see the dark padula flowers at the bottom on this picture, (not a very good picture) and further down my blog you can see it with the blue flowers. The blue just didn't have the feel I was trying to achieve. I wanted warm colors, golds, warm greens, pinkish shades.
I'm on a roll now!
