Half way through the week. Bit of a frustrating day. I was supposed to be on the Webs Podcast today with my fellow Knit and Crochet-er Ellen Gormley. There was some kind of snafu and although I was waiting on the line, they couldn't get back to me. Bummer. Missed talking with the lovely Kathy. She does a great interview.
Tomorrow I'm going to be on Marly Bird's YarnThing Podcast at noon Eastern Time. You can actually call in and talk to me, Candi Jensen (the producer of Knit & Crochet Now), and Marly. The number is (347) 539-5589 if you want to say hi. The podcast will be archived so you can listen to it anytime. Isn't technology marvelous.
It's pretty much the end of Wooly Bear weather here. I guess they are all hibernating somewhere til next year. It's funny how they are all over the place in the fall.
I caught this one on my stone steps and I couldn't resist bringing out the Wooly Bear I knit for my 50 Sunflowers to Knit, Crochet and Felt book. The poor little guy was a bit confused I must say.
Check out this awesome Granny Square decorating here.
This looks like a beautiful new French Chicken book. Too bad it isn't available in the US.
Look at this incredible crocheted flower wreath by Lucy at Attic24. Beautiful.
BOOK PARTY - MAY 5-6
to celebrate the publication of my new book
CRAFTING A PATTERNED HOME.
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.
