Sometimes I see things at the barns that are just so remarkable. The other day I was walking around with my camera in hand. There are a couple hundred lambs so sometimes it is hard to focus on all each individual lamb, never mind the under appreciated hard working mamas**. I have to be quick to get the good shot and I am not always so. The lambs are always quick and the mamas are always a bit leary of me. I was just about done with poking around and I found this lamb asleep on her mama. Awwwww - so sweet. It just lay there snoozing away..... for several minutes........
And then it popped up - as kids also do --- and was looking all around...
In a few seconds it was off - on its latest greatest adventure with lots of its lamb pals. Gives me a view into human/animal nature - and you too I hope.
I'm on my way to Boston today to speak at the Roslindale Public Library at 7 p.m tonight. Hope to see some of you there. Julia is coming with me too. Stop and say hi and pick up some yarn at the Yarn and Craft Book Sale. The sale continues through Saturday. Here is the info.
get me started on this - you know it deep down in your heart - you are probably looking
for the little lamb photos, just like you look for the baby and toddler
photos on other blogs. Pimply teen photos, 50 year old women, they just aren't
that appealing. Hard to swallow as the years go on sometimes. Perhaps I
should should start sharing more photos of our older sheep. That is why I enjoy the Lines of Beauty blog written by my friend Louise and The Women's Room blog from the UK. Anyone else have any favorites?)
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.
