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.

Neutral Hipstamatic Photos In and Around the Farmhouse

First off, you must check out Gale Zucker's Photo Tutorial for an embroidered mug sleeve, shot entirely with her Hipstamatic camera app. Do you know Gale's beautiful photography? If you think not, you probably do. She has photographed many knitting books including Shear Spirit and Mason-Dixon Knitting Outside the Lines.

So back to my Hipstamatic (borrowed from Julia) for a few very neutral colored photos.

The thermometer has been hovering at just about zero

A curly iron garden chair under the snow

Snow along the road with a running stream beneath

Our kitchen light and a cracked plaster ceiling

Looking out the kitchen window before the storm

Sheep under the crab apple tree after the storm

Hydrangea blossoms in the snow

Sheep along the fence in the snow

You've inspired me to snag my son's iPod and snap a few hipstamatics of our snowfall - in western TN. We got about two inches and a thin sheet of ice. It was enough to keep the kids home. This is their third snow day in two weeks!

Like your new header on your blog!

The "Sheep under the crab apple tree after the storm" picture is my favorite! It just looks magical, and cozy despite the snow.

OH MY!! Thanks for the shout out Kristin. I love this batch of Hipstas, especially the top one of the thermometer. And the sheep in snow.
Have fun at VK Live!
