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.

Look what we found

Friday night we finally found what we have been looking for......

Can you see them all? There are five kittens - all orange striped. Three with white on them and two all orange stripey. We're still in shock! They are about four to five weeks old. Their momma LilyPons is doing a wonderful job. Julia is going to work on socializing them, along with help from the doggies and other cats. Lots of little hissing going on around here. But pretty cute to say the least.

Kind of fitting to have the orange kittens at orange sunflower time, isn't it?

Oh yay! Isn't LilyPons the one who took that little "vacation?" How long was she gone?

Enjoy that fierce hissing!

I'll show Simba/Sienna the pics of his siblings tonight.


PS: get Mom fixed - she is becoming a kitten machine.

She barely looks big enough to have the 5 of them...they're adorable! Love red kitties...

I think Lily Pons needs a trip to the vet. Or on the farm do you allow your cats to have litters to keep the critter population down?
I covet those sunflowers. I think I need to plant a few dozen next year...although at maturity they can be considered "bait" for the local birds say MY cats.

Kittens are cute but there are more in the world already than can be adopted. I hope you are going to get that cat spayed.
