Sew What! Bags
Lexie shows you how to create bags with pockets where you need them, straps that feel good on your shoulder, and dimensions that work for whatever you want to carry. Lexie's simple instructions make it painless and fun to sew totes, messenger bags, drawstring sacks, handbags, and much more--exactly what you want, exactly the way you want it.
Trust me, if there is anyone who can appreciate the need for great, functional design it's Lexie. She's a busy mom with four young boys, an entrepreneur and self-taught designer with her own successful line of handbags and accessories, and she is also the founder and director of Twist, a contemporary craft and arts event in Northampton, MA.
Don't you think "Sew What! Bags" makes a great Mother's Day gift? Better yet, make them a bag from one of the book's 18 pattern free projects. Get sewing.

Though it was cool and windy, the sun was inviting and the grass is getting greener. These are sure signs that outdoor entertaining will be in full swing soon. We spend tons of time dining outdoors, which is why I love this Rustic Rattan Food Cover and Tray with coordinating Utensil Caddy by Roost and now available at Farmhouse Wares. Featuring hand-woven rattan with an unpeeled, natural finish, this set has relaxed, elegant style. The food cover is perfect for keeping your treats sheltered from pesky flies, while the tray makes serving easy. Perfect for picnics and country garden parties. Are you ready to dine out tonight?

Our Chicken Coop
but I was thinking Martha Stewart.
And with some style. Like Eleanor Mondale's coop from Country Living. Love the chandelier. A coop needs good lighting.
This is what we have so far. It's a work in progress, but considering the chicks are supposed to be here for Easter, we better make some more progress ASAP. Now, Martha called her coop Palais de Poulet and Eleanor calls hers Cluckingham Palace. I think we need a good name. Any ideas?

The Hatfield Sycamore Tree
with a base circumference of 28.5' in 2006
But one day last summer a huge limb
And though the town's people were sad
to learn about the sick old sycamore's fate, they knew it was for the best. And so the process of deconstructing
nearly 300 years of living began.
The extent of its rot was alarming.
To see how time can wear down something so solid,
turning it into a hollow shell, was not so much poetic, but more of a reminder.
to take a piece of this history away with them.
Piece by piece it was carted off.
The stump was ground back into the earth,
but its roots still remain.
