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.

Random Colorful Hipstamatic Photos from our Farmhouse

I'm in New York City at VK Live! But I haven't forgotten you all. I am teaching Embroidery on Knits, Edgings and all about the Joy of Color. So, here are some colorful Hipstamatic photos for your weekend!

Looking in late in the evening on a really cold night!

Christmas lights on the tree. We don't take ours down until Valentine's Day! It seems to help make the winter seem shorter.

Lights along the mantel

Looking up the cellar stairs

Pairs of cloisonne vases in the living room

Vera, the "Head Cat" on the daybed in the kitchen nook. She barely ever strays from this spot unless it is to the food bowl.

Phoebe asleep one evening

Photo by Julia of her Ugg boots which were a Christmas gift from her Aunt Jen. A huge hit!

I'm sorry I didn't get to see you at VK Live. But I was working at a booth that was pretty much mobbed the entire show. I spotted Ysolda once and S. Pearl-McPhee once. Also, nearly mowed Debbie Bliss down. Heh.

the pictures of this farm looks great, I was wondering how do you grow vegetables there? do you use Greenhouses in your farm?
