Lost Arts studio

A lot of the fiber arts I enjoy are things like tatting, netmaking, chair caning, and even weaving, where people will come up to me when I demonstrate and solemnly tell me, "That's a lost art."

17 December 2007


I heard a weird noise just now, and walking around to suss it out, found that the cast-iron steam kettle on top of the soapstone woodstove was singing.

The kettle was singing.

How often have I read that? And now I've heard it.

Christmas music on the CD player: Butch Thompson's Yulestride, one of my all-time Christmas favorites, alternating with things like Bethlehem after Dark, Anonymous 4's On Yoolis Night, Ethan James' Ancient Music of Christmas (primarily hurdy-gurdy and definitely not for everyone), Christmas with Sonos Handbell Ensemble, or The Jethro Tull Christmas Album.

What? You didn't know there was a Jethro Tull Christmas album?

It's an education, blogreading, innit?

Now [says to self, firmly] must go get ready for Christmas!

I'm trying to imagine what a Tull Christmas would sound like and failing miserably :]
