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.

First Red Leaf

I fear autumn in western Massachusetts isn't going to be quite as colorific (is that a word?) as it usually is. With all the rain, lots of the trees' leaves are just shriveling up and falling off without much of a color display. I took a walk the other day and did find a couple maple leaves looking pretty. I usually come back with handfuls of leaves that I press between pages of books. It is so fun to open a book and find a leaf from a few years ago. I always remember what project I was doing when and where I picked up the leaf from.


The leaf on the road reminds me of this sock and mitten set from my book Color by Kristin


Don't forget about my One Day Fair Isle and Steeking Retreat on Friday October 14th (the day before Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool begins!). I promise when you leave, you will know how to knit with two colors and how to cut your knitting! Link on the sidebar at right. 

Back to the cleaning and the cooking for this weekend's class. I can't wait to meet everyone.

what do you do with the dried leaves you find years later? Just what things can you do with dried leaves other than composting.

thanks,
