I wore a bright red and white striped shirt and my red Lotta of Stockholm clogs to the Sew Fun Retreat today. I love bright colours in the cooler months. And great news too...Ange and I have opened the Sew Fun Retreats into a co-operative. It's such a good thing, I am so glad it will continue, but with more hands on deck to help make it happen. For those not in the know: Sew Fun Retreats are a monthly Saturday where folks bring everything they need for crafting, a plate of something delicious to share and share space in a beautiful hall set in the bush. We talk, craft, solve world problems, laugh a lot and just generally make happy. Sew good! (Couldn't resist, sorry!)
Also making me happy is THIS. The documentary from the Railroad Revivalist Tour...last year three of my favourite bands got together to play gigs and jam all night on a coast to coast train tour of the US, playing music all the while. Mumford and sons, Edwarde Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes and Old Crow Medicine Show. Plenty of joyous Edwarde Sharpe dance moves and the music, oh the music...Go see.
