I Have A New Flute!

Yes, flute!

My birthday was a few weeks back and TonyP ordered a beautiful Native American-type flute from Erik the Flutemaker. It arrived Tuesday and it's even nicer than I'd dreamed it would be.

I haven't taken a picture of it yet but it's one of the dark, carved ones. The motif is the night sky and the mottled surface of the flute looks like a star field.

The instrument has a good weight and feels wonderful in my hands. It is very easy to play - as long as you just gently breath into it!

As soon as I have pics I will post them!

What Was I Thinking?

I've signed up for a two-month challenge over at Wardrobe Refashion.

Beginning June 1st, I shall abstain from the purchase of mass-produced clothing for two months.

No, really.

If you are not familiar with the site, participants are encouraged to recon, refashion, recycle as well as make things from scratch.

So, in addition to my usual postings, you will probably see some of my sewing and crocheting projects on this blog.
