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.

Spring Lambs

The snow is melting fast although in areas where there is no sun it will be there for a bit. The lambs are still coming if not at such a fast pace which is fine with us. Here's a new black lamb who looks just like his mama.

This group of yearlings is on the main road going past our farm. This is the view overlooking Mark's brother David's dairy farm. You can see his 3 greenhouse barns and the old huge wooden barn. The hill is spectacular and you can see for miles.


The number of cars that stop to look at the sheep is really amazing. Seems there is always someone sitting there looking for new babies. I think people are bringing their kids and their elderly parents to watch the lambs. We always say, wish we had a quarter for everyone who stopped. At least the ewes and lambs are giving us the opportunity to educate people about farming.

This yearling successfully delivered a little white lamb.  It had just gotten up before I took this photo.

Busy day here. Hope you all have a nice day whatever you are doing.

Or whatever kind of Food-Stand... Sell the TOURISTS some MEAT! Set-up a roadside mini Barbeque... Charge for Baby-Lamb Photo-Shoots... Sell Them some MUD! -- Go "MARTHA" on Them!

Can't wait to read your new book I just received. Like the way it is laid out using what looks like linen on the photos.
