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.

Until Next Year

Last week I cut all the blooming flowers in my garden for fear of a frost. Here they are on the porch table ready to be spread around the house. Oh, I will miss these bright and happy colors and shapes.

What about you - has Jack Frost arrived yet in your neighborhood?

He definitely has a couple of times here in Southwest Wisconsin.

Not in my little microclimate, but all around me, yes. Begonias still going strong and my rhododendron starting blooming again a week ago!

When we left for our trip to Cornwall, our favourite rose busy still had a few lonely buds. I'm hoping for at least another few weeks without frost. Your sunflowers and dahlias are beautiful, even if they are the final blooms of the summer. Awesome jugs too!
