Yesterday, I decided to check out one of my favorite spots to take photos of rolled hay packed in white plastic. A quick 6 minute drive from my home @ 44 Chaplin Street brought me to the Atwood Farm located @ 624 Wormwood Hill Road. This 19th century home is now the headquarters for Joshua Trust – Conservation and Historic Trust, Inc. It will also be open for CT Open House Day 2015 and will have a few of my quilts on display. Here is one of the photos that I will copy digitally onto treated cotton and will use for a new piece of my fiber art. It hasn’t spoken to me yet – though words like “Teeter-totter” come to mind. There are many lovely outbuildings on the property. One that will also be open for their Open House Day is the Weaver’s Cottage. Here is a photo of it’s door with a charming sign; and a view of the entire building. I’ve heard a local Chaplin weaver, Peggy Church will be doing a demonstration 0n that day. So if you make it out to the “Quiet Corner” for CT Open House Day on June 13th, 2015, stop by my home/studio in Chaplin and the Joshua Trust’s Atwood Farm located in Storrs, CT.
