There are only two weeks left in this Summer of 2010. I can't believe where the time has gone. It's always like this. Where have those lazy days of summer gone when I was a kid and summer seemed to last forever?
I thought I would share some of my felted flowers with you today as modeled by my sister Jenn's English Bulldog Oscar. Oscar is 8 years old and has turned into the loveliest dog. He is a real lovable guy. When I was working on my Felted Flowers Pattern, I thought it would be fun to show the lei on some other creatures besides Olympia. Oscar is a great model and sits well for the camera!
Looking over the shoulder....
Hoping the heat will cool off...
Waiting for his moment in the spotlight to end....
If you are looking for an "end of the summer" knitting project, check out Olympia's Felted Flowers Pattern on my webpage here. There are all kinds of fun uses for them including decorating gifts. Don't you love the background fabric I found for this photo? It is actually a "bedspread" from Urban Outfitters. Great flowers and motifs and makes a fabulous tablecloth.
This weekend we'll be sharing our farm with the guests at my second "Getting Stitched on the Farm" class in 2010. It is a floral themed venue which will be full of colorful inspiration, beautiful flower inspired ideas, and knitting and crochet. I can't wait to meet all the guests.
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.
