A town known as the “town of books”, Hay-on-Wye is located on the Welsh / English border in the United Kingdom and is a bibliophile’s sanctuary.

#ammoving

furiously typing email to UK promoters demanding a Hay-on-Wye show at the earliest opportunity 

I get a lot of my 19th century book collection here. I was there just the other day and stopped for tea and cake at Shepherds coffee shop before making some purchases at Booth’s Books.

An open call to action to ALL artists everywhere! 
Announcing WORLD ART DROP DAY on September 2nd
All artists, (that means students and professionals, painters and cartoonists, sculptors and illustrators, animators and fine artists, EVERYONE who creates) this September 2nd is World Art Drop Day. Wherever you find yourself that day, drop a piece of your art and tell someone where to find it. The world needs this right now. We need to feel a little more connection to each other and there’s nothing like the bond two random strangers can make through the act of creating and giving.
I recently just finished a cross-country art drop this summer and it was exhilarating. The emails and responses I received from the finders ran the gamut of funny to touching. I want that for everyone!
Here’s how it works:
Draw a picture and hide it somewhere.
Take a photo of either the art or the hiding spot or a combination of both.
Post the image, the city you dropped it in, and a hint on any social media of your choice. Be sure to included the hashtag: #artdropday
Then move on, hoping someone finds it. OR hang around and meet your new friend.
That’s it!
I need your help spreading the word on this. Reblog it, retweet it, facebook it, or even tell someone in person!
September 2nd, lets connect the whole planet with art!

We’ve just joined a choir performing Karl Jenkin’s Adiemus.  And Peter says “I have a CD of his”, and so we listen, Peter passes over the liner notes, and here’s his face, so familiar.  Of course he’s done a portrait of him.My way of experiencing modern culture - through the stream of portraits from Peter Brandt of Avalon Prand.

Silly hats

IMG_20140726_121521Now, first up you may think I’m procrastinating, when I should be working on the cassock pattern. And you are probably right. But at least it brought me back here to remind me of the cassock pattern plan.

This top hat is one just finished. The general pattern was double knitting acrylic yarn, 5.5mm needles, cast on 91sts in the round, 1st round K, then k2 p2 rib for 3 rounds (except the last k2…

Along the way to a cassock pattern

altarboysThe most popular posts on this blog are about cassock patterns.  There is still no downloadable roman cassock pattern available on the internet.

The closest I can find are:

  • This list of patterns from the “Liberal Catholic Church” including amice, alb and surplices
  • This list from Everything Vestments – an anglican style cassock and some surplices

So, I hereby declare my intention to draw up my…
