This Seaside Swimsuit rug would be a great piece for a beach house and has been made so that it can hang on the wall or remove the dowel and place on a chest or table.  The binding on the back is blue and white pillow ticking so the back looks as pretty as the front (almost). 

It has been hooked using #8 and #8.5 wool strips of fabric on natural linen foundation.  Adapted from a Polly Minick design, it measures 17 1/2" x 24 1/2".  This beautiful piece could be yours for $250 plus shipping.  Look at the companion piece next to it.  This picture was taken without a flash so it shows a little darker than it really is in person.



SOLD and residing in MA. Another great beach house wall decoration, rug for the floor or draped over a chest.  It would make a great companion piece to the rug on the left.  This picture was taken with a flash but the same light wools were used in this design as was used on the swimsuit piece.

This was hooked using both #8 and #8.5 wool strips and hooked on natural primitive linen foundation.  As with the other rug, it is bound using blue and white pillow ticking and has been made to hang on the wall by using a dowel in a sleeve or without the dowel for other uses.  Adapted from a Polly Minick design, this measures 13" x 27" and could be yours for $205 plus shipping.

This is my design and based on a woman I knew from the age of 3 years old.  She was a wee bit of a woman who helped care for my ailing grandmother.  Auntie Peanut loved our family as much as we loved her and she used to say that my hair was so curly that I looked just like Shirley Temple. 

The mat measures 12 1/2"  x  12 1/2" and is hooked using #8 wool strips.  Her kerchief bow is a piece of wool which I stitched into place to look three-dimensional and her hair is natural wool roving to give that dimensional look again.  A sleeve has been sewn in the back so it is ready to use as a wall hanging.  $85 plus shipping.


The Jack-in-the-Box is ready to be used as a wall hanging or could be displayed on a dresser of a child's room.  This would make a wonderful gift for an expectant parent or even your own child's room.  It measures 12" x 18 1/2", has been hooked using both hand dyed wool and as is textured wool.  At the tip of the cap there is a gold bell and in it's hands is a woolen piece of wool with the word 'Smile' stitched using embroidery floss.

I could customize the piece by embroidering the child's name and replace the one that is presently shown.  Or, if you want no sign you can easily remove the 'Smile' wording with just a couple snips of thread holding it in place .

Yours for $105  plus shipping.

SnipTuck Keeper  4

Everyone tries to make a better mouse trap and I think I've made one. 

The first picture to the right shows how the pouch portion is attached with Velcro.  This way if you use the keeper to hold your snippets, it can be removed from the magnet without removing the magnets and scissors from the frame.

The second picture shows how I use my Snip-n-Tuck Keeper; I put my scissors on the top magnet and my hooks in the pouch.  There is a heavy piece of canvas sewn into the bottom to prevent the hooks from penetrating the wool.  The Snip-n-Tuck Keeper is $25 plus shipping. 

I am always creating more styles, colors and shapes, please e-mail me if you wish to see a picture of the ones I have in stock now or would like a special order.  I recently had a guy request a more manly one with no appliqué at all, and in a grey herringbone.




 The Snip-n-Tuck Keeper has a Velcro  attachment.      The magnets and Velcro are strong      One magnet goes below the backing and one on top.       enough to hold a few hooks inside

        ~        ~        ~        ~        ~        ~        ~        ~        ~        ~        ~

  This Ying and Yang design is another version of the Snip-n-Tuck which is not removable with Velcro.  Again there is a piece of canvas sewn in the bottom so that the hooks cannot penetrate thru.  If you would like pictures of other designs in stock, please write me.
