27 x 18 inches

Antique Penny Rug

I saw this antique penny rug and loved the graphic appeal. I adapted the penny rug for hooking and for punch needle. 6 x 4.5 inches

Also available for rug hooking:

24 x 16 inches

Wooly Red Birds

My love of grain painting lead me to this project. I painted a Shaker box, and then designed this fraktur-inspired bird pattern for the top. I worked the design with wool threads and punched it through wool backing.  If you want to use weaver's cloth, you can order it that way, too!     7 inches

Among the Morning Glories

This humble rooster stands atop his stone pedestal among the winding morning glories. This design was inspired by an antique hooked rug – perhaps you recognize it. I punched this design on wool using overdyed cotton floss. Kits include pattern on interfacing; you choose the wool you want to use as the foundation fabric.

6 x 6 inches

Bird & Clover

This little piece is my adaptation of an antique hooked rug that I absolutely love. The simplicity of the design just sings to my heart. I have hooked it up as a rug and now am happy to offer you the needle punch design, too.

Small 3.5 x 3 inches

Large 6.5 x 5.5 inches

Primitive Flower

I love the simplicity of this design! I was immediately attracted to the antique rug of this pattern when I saw it  in one of my favorite books, and had to develop an adaptation of it for needle punch . Pattern on weavers cloth.

Small 3.5 x 3.5 inches

Large 7 x 7 inches

Chicken Hearts

Here's a fun needle punch design adapted from an antique hooked rug that I love! I don't know if the old rug had a name, but I call my needle punch version "Chicken Hearts." Four corner hearts surround the chicken (or is he a rooster?) Wavy lines frame the design.

Small 2 x 3.5 inches

Large 4 x 7 inches

Fraktur Deer

Here is another design based on one of the old fraktur I love. Deer were a very popular motif in Early American folk art, and this one is simple, but elegant-looking. Very easy to work, with classic folk art stroke work as accents.Fraktur Deer antique inspired design for punch needle Two colors worked together to produce a soft, aged color to the deer and background. This design would also look wonderful against a dark background.

5.75 x 4 inches

Antique Hearts

This is an adaptation that I designed for punch needle as well as for rug hooking.  This design is my absolute favorite of all the antique hooked rugs I have ever seen. Minimal color, but such a perfect primitive look.

5.5 x 7 inches

Also available for rug

hooking:  18 x 24 inches

Circle of Love

I have always admired antique cut-work love tokens. Just such a love token was the inspiration for this adaptation. I worked the design in wool blend threads, then mounted it and framed it with a simple wide frame. 8 inches
