SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

BOOK PARTY - MAY 5-6

to celebrate the publication of my new book

CRAFTING A PATTERNED HOME.

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.

Another Fabulous Knitting and Stitching Weekend

I am plum tuckered out as the saying goes.... but I have to get back to my knitting anyway. We hosted another great group of knitters here at the farm. The class theme was Color and Flowers but the weekend morphed into Fair Isle and Steeking. These knitters were obsessed! They came with piles of pre-knit homework.


We picked flowers......



We learned about color.....





We knit and talked and laughed.....


We felted and embroidered knit and crochet flowers.....



We learned how to embroider on knits....


We talked about dogs and cats and sheep and chickens.....


We ate great....... (Thanks to Cathy and Cynthia!)



We rode on hay bales 


behind the giant tractor.....


We watched the sun go down.....

 

We told stories.....


And that was just the first day! Here we all are just before we went our separate ways on Sunday.... To knit alone but remember each other, our individual stories, our collective laughs. I miss you all!


One more chance in 2012 to join the fun Getting Stitched on the Farm here at Leyden Glen Farm! I have two spaces available. The leaves should be turning gold and red and orange. Fall will be in the air. Check it out here.

It would be a wonderful experience especially with all of your fun colors! Plus they would get to see all of your sheep! :-)
