When there is this much snow, the sheep and lambs stay close to the barns. The snow is deeper than their legs are tall so until it gets packed down, they cannot get through it. This group of sheep is using the tire tracks from the tractor to venture out a little further.
I was thinking about the little lambs this morning. They were born in January and they know nothing but white snow. They do not know that there is green grass to come. Think how happy they will be to run through the grass and munch on it. That is after they live through mud season.
Thanks to all of you kind folks who have been sending me notes upon receiving your copies of Crafting A Colorful Home in the mail. Thank you so much for the direct orders. I am so happy you all are enjoying reading it. I hope some of you feel inspired to shake up your homes with some more color. If you feel like it, would you mind spreading the word about the book? I have been seeing some photos of the cover on Instagram and Facebook which is awesome. When a book comes out, there is a small window of opportunity for it to develop any traction, so help me spread the word if you like it. Thanks! I am still fulfilling direct orders for it via my website here.
Next Wednesday February 18th, I will be speaking about color and my new book Crafting A Colorful Home at Black Sheep Knitting Company in Needham, MA. I will also be selling and signing books. Seating is limited and as of today there are spaces available. The event is free and they will have a waiting list and will call you if there are cancellations. Here is the link for more information. Next week is school vacation for all of Massachusetts and Julia and I will be going to my sister Laurie's family's house for a few days and combining it with this talk. I cannot wait to see how much snow they have. Well, maybe I can.
On Thursday March 5th, I will be the Keynote Speaker at the Roslindale Public Library's Opening Night of their Yarn and Craft Book Sale. I will also be selling and signing books with a portion of the proceeds to go to the Boston Public Library System. Roslindale is a section of Boston and is easy to get to. If you have ever been to the Arnold Arboretum, you have been in or close to Roslindale. Here is the info you will need. Again, another free event. This is one of the library's biggest fundraisers and is a fun event and a chance to pick up yarn and craft books while helping the library.
