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.

Bits and Bobs as They Say.....

School vacation this week - snow today, finally. We've missed every big storm there's been. Cleaning my studio and the bits of lamb pee No. 84 has been busy doing. He's still going to work. Last night he didn't get home until 10 p.m. Pretty soon, he'll be staying at work all night long - like a teenager.

You must watch this video. Quite hilarious. Couldn't figure out how to get it on my blog. One day I will. Thanks to Helen of Chronic Knitting Syndrome for the FYI about it.

And have you seen this one? That Ann and Kay of Mason-Dixon Knitting are too much, aren't they?

Good thing I don't get high speed internet at my house - I could be on the computer all day long if I didn't watch out.

Oh, gosh, the Pringle of Scotland video was really funny. Loved the dancing goat!

We've finally gotten some snow, twice in a week!

I didn't realize how bad it had gotten until we went to the NY Botanical Gardens and started tromping around on the hills. It was nearly up to my knees!
