We're taking a leap of faith here and hoping the old saying "build it and they will come......" will hold true.
Last month, our house looked like this..... Do you see the porch at the lower right side of the house?
After a bit of red tape, a lot of waiting and a special permit..... it looked like this....
Late last week, my brother-in-law David sent over a "boom truck" loaded with lots of materials.....
That's our friend Kevin our contractor and his assistant Rory, unloading the supplies. Phoebe and Nessie helped, of course.
You'll have to bear with me for awhile because it's all about the new studio here at the farm. I'll be chronicling the progress and if you want, you can come along for the ride. I'll try to include some other more normal bits now and then but life is really busy with Farmer's Markets and getting ready for Classes at the Farm this summer.
Stay tuned - more tomorrow on the progress.
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.
