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.

Arrived at the barn yesterday to find everything so quiet. Slowly, the little guys woke up and started scurrying around.

Bet you didn't know that little lambs take naps just like children do. Of course there's that little one in the middle who refuses to nap - just like my little Julia did.

The New Boy has a kindred spirit in Julia.

Do they yawn when the awaken? They looked so clean too, especially the one on the ledge there.
Your photos tell us such a sweet story.

I can't get enough of these adorable lambs. I'm so glad to have found your blog.

I truly enjoy living vicariously with your fabulous menagerie!! Our tenacious terrier makes it impossible to live with more than one critter in our house. Popping by your blog lets me enjoy the pitter patter of little hooves ;-).
Winter in my world has been very long. I have increasing dreams of moving to the mountains of Mexico....
I hope our paths cross again, soon... your colour drives me wild!!!
