you don’t meet nice girls in coffee shops.

Last night I heard Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin, Shawn Colvin and Buddy Miller sing Tom Waits, Bessie Smith, Johnny and Jack, Judith Miller, some gospel music and a bunch of their own stuff. It felt like looking down on something special, to see these individually incredible songwriter-musicians make and enjoy their music together. Makes it sort of hard to return to regular life, so instead of jumping right into the reading I should’ve done last night, I’ll show you a little bit of spinning I did yesterday.

This is my first batch of fiber from the Spunky Eclectic Fiber Club — 4 oz of organic merino in colorway Twilight.

Boh’s not so good with the spindle. (Yet.)

The blues and greens look particularly beautiful against the colors of one of the books I’m reading this week — prompted me to get out the camera this morning.

Time to have some more birthday cake for breakfast and get back to the pile of reading…

  1. Yummy fiber! I can’t wait to see what kind of lovely yarn it turns into. And I know I’m a few days late on this, but happy birthday!!

  2. What a great show that was! I’ve been trying to find set list, and found your page!

    Some nice video from the show posted already:

    Their version of “Mary” made me cry it was so beautiful!
