Cynthia is a "repeat offender" at my "Get Stitched on the Farm" classes. She was in the first session last July and couldn't wait to come back this year. Thank you Cynthia for coming back!
Cynthia chose a Trumpet Vine Flower to work off of. Trumpet Vine Flowers are exquisite things. They have a striped interior and light yellow pistils and stamens. They are little works of art in their own.
Cynthia is a knitter and chose to work her flower in the round. She made my "Pacific Socks" last year from Kristin Knits and was able to combine the technique from them with her flower.

Cynthia chose to knit her flower in the round on double pointed needles. She combined the striping with the increases and ended the flower with some massive increases and a bobbled edge.
Here is the inside of Cynthia's flower.
Here is Cynthia's flower after felting.
Cynthia is going to combine this flower with her other felted flowers she brought and make herself a scarf. Fabulous job Cynthia! I hope you send me a photo of the finished scarf!
There is still one more space available in the October 2/3 Class at the Farm. You can check it out here.
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.
