Reissuing "Key To My Old Heart" Rug Design as PAPER PATTERN!

Please Note:  There has been a problem with some not getting my email with the PDF pattern.  I haven't been able to quite figure out the problem.  Some are getting it just fine and others are not getting it at all.  If you have ordered the pattern through PayPal and haven't recieved your email from me with the PDF pattern please email me at antcathy@charter.net and let me know.  I will try to resend it

My first experience with the PDF's  and it's not cool!  

But don't worry.... we'll get you the pattern one way or another

Thank you for all your patience and understanding!!

Hookers are the best!!

I have decided to list the pattern as a PAPER PATTERN available in my Etsy Shop.  Look for Red House Wool Studio Etsy Shop on the left side of this blog.  

So.... here is my introduction of the pattern to those just now reading about it!!  

I'm very pleased to introduce my newest hooked rug design "Key to My Olde Heart"!  It's that time of year when many of us who "play with wool"  feel the need to create something heart shaped.

"Olde" rug hooker that I am.... the key to MY heart is hooking and creating my little wool mats!

  I felt the need to add an early date to my heart. Perhaps a nod to an earlier time when life was sim


I would like to thank my dear friend Lisa Halverson ( who is an avid collector of antique items with heart motifs) who hooked this rug along with me and for her valuable inspiration to design this little mat! You can see her very beautiful rendition up in the header photo on the far left.

   As Always,
My Heartfelt Thanks!

  1. Oh Cathy, I'm sure the problem isn't with your computer. maybe some computers are not up to date with their Adobe or similar apps to open the PDF files. I may be totally wrong but that's what I think.

    Your pattern is adorable with that key to your heart.


  2. Working through can be cumbersome, but we all understand. Seeing so many wonderful versions of your new design!! Have a great day!

  3. Hi Cathy - I have to agree with Julia - I've experienced this a couple of times.
    I love the rug and the colors are so yummy, if I can call it that?? :)


I love comments! Thank-you!
