Hey there Heather - I've been wondering where you were, glad to hear from you. Hasn't it been a crazy month? Hope you're doing well. Are you off again soon? Aren't you scheduled for every continent in 2009 or something like that?

Ah, I think we've both been in the throes of finding something. I finally have returned to reading blogs (perhaps writing more often again soon?) and really enjoyed the bit on felt. I did some felt work in a class and really liked that it didn't require any major equipment. Take care of yourself!

Hi Mal! That's my favorite version too. You've got a face with a view . . . such a sweet/sad song. I love that whole album.

Shawn Colvin exposed me to that song when she did a cover of it. I used to listen to it on repeat for hours when I was living in strange cities.

    Slow Cloth is thoughtful in its use of materials and respects their source.
  • Quality
    Slow Cloth artists, designers, crafters and artisans want to make things that last and are well-made.
  • Beauty
    It's in the eye of the beholder, yes, but it's in our nature to reach for beauty and create it where we can.
  • Community
    Slow Cloth supports community by sharing knowledge and respecting relationships.
