Catherine Whall Smith . . . shares some photos of the Atwood Farm

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.  IMG_2688Here is one of the photos that I will copy digitally onto treated cotton  and will use for a new piece of my fiber art.  IMG_2631 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.
