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.

Hazy, Hot, and Motionless

Oh, I really hate this weather. We are all wiped. Give me winter and a wool sweater anyday. I had to give up gardening because I thought I was going to pass out. Growing up, we had a pool and so I have been spoiled for life. Thank goodness for fans and river streams.

The cats know what they are doing though. They just lay there as still as possible knowing that the more they move, the more uncomfortable they will become.

It won't stay like this forever, that I know.

I so feel your pain. However...I'm in northern Michigan and I woke up to 43F this morning. It's supposed to be 72/45% and sunny. It's heading your way. Gardening may resume.

I LOVE the cold weather, too. We are here in sunny California, summer lasts till late October. I love wearing wool; foggy cold rainy weather. Wrong place to live, I guess :)

I'm not a cat lover but the photos you take of them make we want one!

Stay coooool

I hear you. I am not a big fan of heat and humidity either. Cats are masters of comfort, aren't they?

The cat-as-temperature-gauge is an excellent product!

We are, hopefully, finished with a cool wet spell, but it rarely gets so warm that cats simply 'flop' and stop moving! Of course, living next to the ocean makes for cooler evenings and that is wonderful! You may not need a sweater during the day, but late evening is always perfect for a sweater or shawl!

I, too, really hate the heat. It's seriously messing with the knitting mojo. Bring me winter weather ANY day!

Your kitten is adorable, and certainly has the right idea.

I always complain about being in the Humidity Capital of the World, but at least the weather here demands AC about half of the year. So we have a respite from the heat. Now to get a pool in my backyard so we really have a respite from the heat! I love seeing the kitten/cat pictures. They are just the cutest!

Imagine walking around in that fur coat! We have just had a couple of days break in the ghastly hot, humid stuff and it is great to have the windows open again. That is what summer should be for, right?
