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.

My New Book, Yarn and Creativebug Giveaway + Chatter

Just popping in to say that today is the last day of a great giveaway over on the Creativebug site. Sign up and you get to watch a free video. Check it out here.

Sugaring is over here. Spring is taking its sweet time coming though. The buckets are slowly coming down through the hills. Until next year!

Bring on the green grasses! 

I've been loving a version of this Redemption Salad (aka Asian Chicken Salad) I found in the recent Bon Appetit Magazine.  Seriously delicious and easy. Only thing I didn't have on hand was Asian Fish Sauce. I left out the brown sugar. Must check out the blog and the cookbook called the same "Dinner - A Love Story" soon.

Hope everyone is having a great week!

Thanks for the dinner tip, it looks yummy! Always looking for things that are low-fat, low-carb, low-maintenance and yet high-flavor. Green spring has finally come rolling in here in PA, should be headed your way!

I loved your color workshop on Creative Bug! Thank you so much. Now I'm off to design some bright and cheery mittens.

You'll get hooked on that Dinner- A Love Story blog! The cookbook and website are so interesting for people who love good food and yet are time-constrained (is that really a word?) It feeds my food soul like your site feeds my craft soul, Kristin.

Would you like some Asian Fish sauce? Email me (kate{at}okaykate.com} your snail mail address and a bottle of 5 Boat Fish sauce (seriously good) can be yours.

Think of it as payment for all the lovely sheep photos that made me grin.
