Finding beauty in things that others would throw away is something I try to do when I think of it. This little pile of Julia Yarn bits has been sitting on my desk in my studio all winter long giving me a color hit when the days outside have been snowy, cloudy, and gray. I haven't been able to throw it away. One day I'll use it for stuffing a toy or something.
It's amazing what my camera picks up. The yarns fade in and out and create their own little impressionistic masterpiece.
Each one a little different.
One prettier than the next.
Hope you have a color filled weekend somehow. We're in for a bit of rain, sleet and snow.
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.
