to celebrate the publication of my new book


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.

What's To Come....

We had our first bit of snow over the weekend - it sure was a wake-up call as to what is to come. It has been really cold at night although the days have been rather beautiful for walking and doing odd chores. It is the first week of shot gun hunting season so there are lots of strangers in big old trucks driving up and down our road. This morning after I put Julia on the school bus, I walked down to see the lambs. It was a gorgeous morning with the mist rising. You could see the sheep breathing. They often lie under this old apple tree that is being swallowed up by a really old grapevine. I wonder what they think about the strangers in trucks and the occasional shotgun blast.

That picture reminds me of the cover of The Sheep and The Rowan Tree. A cute children's book. http://student.ccbcmd.edu/~cyau1/200%20ACS%20Study%20Guide%20for%20O%20Chem%20I%20Sp%202009.htm
