BOOK PARTY - MAY 5-6
to celebrate the publication of my new book
CRAFTING A PATTERNED HOME.
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.

This year we seem to be plagued by uninvited critters. At our pumpkin patch, beavers have been causing farming misery. In our yard, the mama raccoon has killed two of our hens to feed her babies. At our house, our carpenter friend Steve discovered termites.
Needless to say, we are trying to eradicate the pests so that our house doesn’t fall down and our fields can remain being farmed. Living with nature is a tricky balance for all. As for the chickens, that’s why I raise replacement hens every year.
There’s always something, isn't there?
