to celebrate the publication of my new book


Our colorful 1751 farmhouse will be open to the public. On view will be many of the projects that are featured in Crafting A Pattern Home along with many other things I have made over the years.

This event will be a celebration of the handmade. I hope the day will inspire you to add some pattern and color to your home.

The event is FREE. Books will be available along with some other things I have made. For more information and directions, see the EVENTBRITE PAGE HERE. Although tickets are not mandatory, it will help me get a count to know what to expect. Hope to see you here in western Massachusetts in May.

Bucolic Scenes via It's a Purl Man

The interview I did with Guido Stein of It's a Purl Man is up. When you get a chance, take a listen. Guido is such a fun guy with a witty sense of humour - I enjoyed talking with him. Too bad I kept turning away from the microphone - sorry, I fade in and out a bit. Guess I'm not used to such things. The interview got slightly cut off in the beginning. He asked me a question about where we live and what the word bucolic means. The interview starts out with my answer.

Here's the link to find the interview: Brightly Colored - Kristin and Julia's interview with Guido of It's a Purl Man.
Here's the link for the download.

This is what I consider a "bucolic scene" from our farm. These pretty flowers were blooming in the beginning of June. Knit and enjoy the listen. Julia is even interviewed at the very end.

Thanks so much Guido.

Thank you, Kristin! It was so much fun listening to you and your daughter being interviewed by Guido. I really enjoy reading your blog too! Have a nice day.

I'm going to have a listen right now! Also, I thought you might enjoy a post where I did a little plug for Colorful Stitchery. (There are a few, actually!) On my blog, click on "sensorial" under "Materials by Area" and scroll down ... you'll see a miniature tea cozy inspired by you!

Also, when I switched over to Blogger beta, I could no longer post to the stitch along. I would love it if you could sign me up again!

I'll try to listen to the interview soon. My podcast/email backlog is scary.

I wish I had beautiful views like your "bucolic scene" ... Thank you for sharing and letting us enjoy it vicariously.

What a great interview! I could hear you just fine. By the way, I don't think your color combinations are hard to sell at all. I love them. I linked to your interview and blog in a recent post on my blog. I hope some new people come your way. Have a great Sunday.
