Wow - I just heard from my new friend "Oliver at Wikio" that "Getting Stitched on the Farm" has made it into their top 20 of needlework blogs for the past month. The list goes live tonight. I want to thank you all for following me and reading me as this adventure of life, family, knitting, sheep, stitchery, books, and local food unwinds. It is an honour to have all of you interested and I so appreciate your comments, notes, and interest.
I have decided that to celebrate the blog - which actually means all of you - I'll be doing some great giveaways over the rest of the month of October. October is my favorite month of the year. It is my birthday (the 1st), my Mom's (today - the 8th), my niece Olivia's (also on the 1st), and was my grandma's (on the 27th). Besides all the birthdays, October is the very nicest month weatherwise too.
So pop back in next week to see what I'm doing. And thank you all for reading this little old blog. You can use the list below to find some other really interesting blogs. I know I'm going to the next time I get some free time at the library! And sorry about the space - can't seem to get that to go away. There's also a second post for today if you look past this list.
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.
