SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

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.

Come Visit the Sunflowers


Come visit our Sunflower Field. It's blooming like crazy! Here's a link to Mapquest to find it. The address is 562 Leyden Road, Greenfield, MA 01301 (note that we don't live at the field so please don't send mail to that address).

If you do plan on coming, give me a heads-up so I can try to be around to say Hi.

And yes, I know the date is wrong - I just wanted to keep this post at the beginning of my blog until the sunflowers stop blooming.

Wish i could visit your field and flower stand. How many bunches do you usually make up and sell each year? Is this an activity that Julia gets involved in?
I love the sunflower hat. I posted some cosmos in my blog this week. Orchids are exotic, but simple flowers like cosmos and sunflowers give me more pleasure than the exotics!

Your sunflowers are gorgeous, wish I could visit...
Why is your post dated "Sunday, September 30"?? strange...or else I need more coffee...(working on my first cup)!

Hi, I just listened to your interview on Guido's podcast (Purlman). I know, I'm very slow, aren't I? Very interesting, I'm intrigued about your work with color. I've ordered your book.
Then I came over here. That Sept. 30 thing was a bit strange, but maybe that's when you think the sunflowers will bloom? :)

I love sunflowers - and what a wonderful picture.

I do so love sunflowers. I don't know where they came from, but blue jays would suddenly appear in the yard when the sunflower seeds were ripe.

Your sunflower pictures are beautiful. Thanks for the invitation to come by and see them. I would ask before I snapped a picture and I'd also buy a bunch. However, a trip to MA is not in the plan during this blooming season.
