Winter Cottage

Winter Cottage

Early style goods from my hook and needle. A variety of offerings: hooked rugs, dolls, doll quilts, and other needfuls.

Welcome from the rural hills of Berks County PA! Self taught and inspired by the handwork of women and school girls of the 1800’s, I enjoy hooking early style rugs, handstitching, and creating cloth dolls,doll quilts and other prim needfuls. It is the natural aging of cloth: the worn out fold, a frayed pin prick, and a loved off doll cheek from many kisses, that I work hard to replicate in my stitched pieces. My rugs are simple depictions of rural life in a pleasing prim palette.

         Please stop by my Etsy shop to view rug patterns and the occasional stitched piece.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed the visit.



Made just for you, please enjoy this linen heart embellished with a dainty floral appliqué from reproduction fabric surrounded by lovely little cross stitches which have been aged along with the linen. The sari ribbon is attached with an antique bone button. There is a cotton loop for hanging or the loop can be tucked out of sight to be used as a bowl filler. The colors will take you right into Spring and Mother’s Day. The heart measures approx. 6 1/2” long and 5” wide not including the loop. Shipping is $3.
