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.

On Saturday, our niece Aimee gets married under the big tent at the top of the hill on her parent's Sunbrite Farm. The black and white cows will be watching.

Where did the years go?

Added later.... Here they are.... Mr. and Mrs. Jeff Cairney. Lovely day, gorgeous weather, fabulous family and friends dancing the night away. Good luck you two! XO

At least she didn't grow up in mass-produced sweaters! That one is yummy.
