Diane was the most local of students. She has an interesting crafting background and knows how to both knit, crochet, bead, sew and do all kinds of crafts. She too decided to crochet her flowers. Here is her "Moulin Rouge Sunflower" before felting.
Here it is after felting. Front view.....
Diane left early and didn't stay for dinner because she wasn't feeling well. We missed her but understood. She didn't sit idle at home though. Look what she brought back - a crocheted coleus leaf.
Diane's pillow design is based with a periwinkle blue wool felt. She will probably add a few more leaves to it.
Diane's skills blew us all away! 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.
