I took these photos a couple weeks ago, the day before our "house lambs" were being moved to the great outdoors. As you can see, the lambs were full-time entertainment for Phoebe and Nessie.
We kept putting the lambs' move to the great outdoors off because it was so wickedly cold. We were worried they would expire from the shock. Finally it warmed up and the time was right. And besides, I thought it would be nice to have friends over for dinner. Dinner guests hadn't been possible for a few weeks due to the state of the place. The date was set and out they went but not before I took these really cute photos.
Phoebe is still bummed about the lack of farm animals in her house.
On this photo, can you see the littlest lamb under the hutch.
What about the one little leg wrapped around the front sheep on the right. Aww.
It took me a good day and lots of scrubbing but the kitchen and the bathroom are sheep poop free. Ahhh, the joys of living on a farm.
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.
