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.

Sunflowers and Some New Discoveries

I'm sorry but I can't stop taking photos of our sunflowers. In September, I think about them all the time. About how the light hits them at certain times of day. About the birds and bees and bugs that live there. About the photos I could be taking when I am not there. I guess you could call it an obsession. 

Add to all that the acquisition of an iphone and its camera and the possibilities have grown.

Just discovered a new app called PicFrame (99 cents via Itunes) via links I followed to this photoblog from links I followed from the Pioneer Woman's Photography category. Overwhelming!

Really easy to make these collages......

And fool around with all kinds of things. 


Check it out if you are a iphone photographer or even if you aren't! 

Assorted photos taken via regular iphone camera, the Hipstamatic app, and Instagram. Sorry - cannot remember which is which. Try it. Total fun.
