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.

Twins Revealed

Went for a walk in the pasture looking for the new twins. Took awhile to find them which is a good thing - it means the mama is taking good care of them and keeping them away from the fray of the flock for the first few days of their lives. It's a lot to ask a yearling ewe to care for twins, considering it is her first time around, don't you think? Not that we have any control over the twinning.

While we were looking, the other day old lamb scampered up the hill beside its mama. So sweet.

Found the mama and twins tucked away down in the orchard. They were nursing. 

My pack of five dogs and I startled her and made her uneasy. We left them alone quickly, knowing they were doing fine. Very sweet little lambs that look to be Border Leicester crosses.
