SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

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.

Something I Finished!

Let's just say... almost finished. I love knitting these little Knit It Felt It Zip It Bags. They are instant gratification, make great gifts, and are totally useful objects. Here's a new one I have almost finished. Just have to sew the lining in. That's the lining I'm using behind the bag. Doesn't it look great - stripes and graphic triangles...


On one side, I added a felted crochet flower for a bit of hopefulness for the upcoming summer blooms.


You can purchase the pattern for the Knit It Felt It Zip It Bags for more instant gratification PDF download on my website here. It's a great little project to grab and knit if you are traveling somewhere this weekend to be with family or friends.

My friend Karin Strom told me about this fabulous magazine and website. It's called Hand and Eye and it's about all things textile and culturally related. They have a great newsletter that they send out frequently. There's a paper magazine edition too which is chock-full of interesting bits, some even about knitting. Check it out here....

Happy Weekend Everyone!
