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.

Kittens are Ready to Fly the Coop

Our spring litter of kittens is ready to leave. This batch has such great personality. There’s Miley the Hunter (the solid black kitten) and Hannah the Love. Persy (Persimmon the short haired orange kitty) is the most out-going and adventuresome. And fluffy Zelda (who is probably a boy) is the laziest of all. Every morning he falls asleep on The Farmer’s farming magazine while he is drinking his cup of tea. It’s such a sweet sight.

Tomorrow Gudrun is coming to pick up Persy. I’m waiting to hear from Sarah about Hannah. Sarah – Are you out there? Are you still interested? We’re looking in earnest for homes for the other two if anyone is interested!

Cute! I have two little ones of my own running around playing. LadyGrey, the mother, is keeping an eye on them, while r.Black, their big brother, wants to play along! If he gets too tough, Lady Grey gives him a proper smacking!

The sleeping kitten is adorable. BTW, my daughter has been using one of your embroidery books, the pillow one, and it's a great book. I recognized your name and looked through it. Really great ideas.

Say hi to Gudrun for me. I never did catch her while she was in California.

Adorable! I spotted your 'God Speed the Plough' motto cup, I've got the same poem on a couple of matching vintage mugs, though not the same design as yours.

It's a good thing you live across the country from me, I'd snatch one up in a snap. ...and my husband , the non-catlover, would disown me.
