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.

Photos from the Farm

Some lamb and sheep photos from this week. It has been very cold (again) and we even had more snow. This week they are promising warmer temperatures. 

This is one of our rams - he is the oldest guy and although we were thinking of retiring him from breeding, we have decided to give him another year. He is a Polypay and has sired some very nice lambs. His daughters are lambing now and they are taking good care of their babies. 

These two little twins were born this week to this yearling. She is doing a great job. I posted a little video on Instagram just after they were born that you can see here. Make sure you have your sound up so you can here the mama talking to her babies. 

While you are there, check out this photo of the lamb that almost didn't make it last week. It is now living large in the kitchen. Lucky lamb. She is rather attached to me. 

There is always a sheep on top of a bale of hay.

I think this may be my favorite picture of the week. 

Hope you all are having a good Sunday.

Many Thanks for the lovely sheep posts! long ago I used to work on farms and spent many enjoyable seasons lambing (Ok they were mucky & hard work too but fun)We used to use Brut men's after shave as a lamb adopter/scent masker. After that I never looked at Chaps that wore it in quite the same way...lol fun memories. Beautiful photos and very memory inducing descriptions THANK YOU!
