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.

Early Morning at Leyden Glen Farm

Our roosters (currently there are 4 of them) get up early. In fact, they start crowing at around 4 a.m. It's very noisy every morning between the chickens and roosters, guinea hens, sheep, and all the wild birds. I'd like to do a "waking up" audioboo of it one day. In the meantime, this photo of Mr. Rooster crowing shot through the screened in porch window will have to suffice. Some Photoshop filters too. 

It's hot as anything here. As I hear it is all over the country. Oh, I hate the heat.

Oh, there's just nothing like the sounds of a farm!

I'm with you about the heat. Seems to me likes we've had enough "summer."
