It has long been my dream to have a dedicated home-based studio space, and my recent move has afforded me just that - a sun-filled room, large enough to both make and display my work.  Specializing in traditional hand hooked rugs, chair pads, runners and hot pads, as well as primitive locker hooked and crocheted rag rugs, Coral Door Studio is now located right in the village of Lakefield.  The studio will be open by appointment  only.  If you're interested in popping by, you can email me at rdyer@nexicom.net or text me at 705-654-3044.

I had every intention of staying upright this winter but, alas, I was no match for a piece of glare ice.  So here I am, broken wrist, cast on, (just two weeks away from a big move  - back to the village, folks!), and unable to pursue my latest rug making obsession during my down time.  I was on the search for a gentler means of creating (using just one hand and a few wobbly fingers) when a quilting friend gifted me with some beautiful scrap pieces from her latest creation.....and I happened to have bits of blue and hot pink wool on hand... perfect for making a stack of colourful "crazy" coasters.  The green coasters were made with a double layer of hand dyed canvas, embellished with scrap pieces of cotton.

Sets of 2 - $15;  Sets of 4 - $28

This winter, I got the urge to return to a method of rug making that I enjoyed several years ago.  These rag rugs are crocheted using only recycled fabrics.  Colourful, extremely durable, and so, so easy to care for, they're ideal for use in any part of the cottage or home.  

I also plan to make square and rectangle rugs - stay tuned for those!

I just finished up a wonderful Christmas show at Mark St. United in Peterborough, and am now preparing for the final event of the season .... the very fabulous Finer Things, a juried show at Emmanuel United Church (also in Peterborough) on Friday evening December 7, and Saturday December 8.  Here's one of my newest locker hooked rag rugs - all set for next weekend. The soft tones and nearly square shape would work especially well in a small bathroom, bedroom, or in front of the kitchen sink ......

Measures 29" x 27"
$175

This is a bit of a departure for me; after spending many years focused on traditional rug hooking, I decided to learn another primitive art called locker hooking.

One end of the locker hook resembles a crochet hook; the other end has a large eyelet for threading yarn. Using the crochet hook end, loops of fabric are hooked into the strong canvas backing, then locked into place by pulling the threading yarn through the loops.  The resulting piece is thick and durable; washes easily and can be worn and walked on for years.

This piece was made using strips of coloured cotton sheets; it measures 37" x 28" - it's a nice heavy weighted rug - and so soft underfoot!

$250
