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.

And so they go

At first there were 5 red striped kittens

And then there were 4 red striped kittens

Next there were 3 red striped kittens

And then there were 2 red striped kittens

Now there is one red striped kitten. His name is Otto and we think he will be living here.

Kitten No. 1 went to live in Easthampton with Deanna, a knitter and a spinner and his name is Charlie.
Kittens No. 2 and 3 are living in town and are named Mel and Nacho with a lovely family.
Here is Kitten No. 4 with his new mom Alice from Brookline who has named him Be-Bop. Knitters make such good kitten mama's.

These are the cutest kitten pictures!!
My kids (who were looking over my shoulder when I was viewing this post) were happy to see that they all went to good homes! Big cat lovers here!

What cute kitten photos! You can see how they grew. Lucky, lucky Otto, to get to stay home on the farm with Mama Cat.

Brigitte said...

Hi Otto! Just wondering how your name sounds in your ears... Exotic? Extraordinary? Oh it's sure a special name for a lovely beautiful kitten! Had to smile though as here in Austria Otto is a rather oldfashioned German name...

Julie said...

Oh -- so sweet! I have a big orange cat of my own, so I've been enjoying these kitten photos. Glad you found wonderful homes for them!

Sara said...

Oh I've met Alice and I bet she and Be-Bop will have a grand time together.

Hope you're enjoying as much color as you can!

Great shot of Alice. We should figure out how to frame this.

As an update for the older step-siblings - Simba Siena was neutered yesterday.

A true sign of kitty maturity. He celebrated by knocking over the jade plant.

The "knitters make good kitten mama's" part is so true!
I even wrote a little poem about cat and skeins ;-D
