I am happy to tell you that we're home! We've certainly covered a lot of miles this year, between our circumnavigation of North America, and trips to Australia and England. Since we returned from the UK we've had a couple of quick trips south of the border - to Edmonds WA and Florence OR. We have one more "away" performance in Wichita KS next month.
It's great to be home! I'm living in my sewing room these days, working on a bunch of new pieces.
I hope you have not been affected by the recent events of Hurricane Sandy, nor the earthquake off the coast of British Columbia. It's a reminder to be prepared for anything, and to appreciate every beautiful day.

Trilogy - Two Thousand Years of Christmas
Are you looking for some different seasonal music this year?
Can't stand to hear the same old carols over and over again?
Between 1994 and 2001, my friends
Eileen McGann and David K and I toured a show called "Two Thousand
Years of Christmas".
It has become required holiday
listening in many households, and we still get emails every year to see
if we're touring the show again.
The CD we recorded is sold out, but, thanks to modern technology, it is still available as a download.
Listen to samples of the songs and order your copy here.
What I'm Working On
. We have a long stretch home now, and it's a perfect time to learn some new techniques. I know myself well - especially how good I am at procrastinating. Even in songwriting, I do my best work when I squeeze myself into a challenge, or deadline. So I have invited two very good friends (one painter, one potter) to join me in a group challenge. In a year and a half, we'll put on a public show and offer our work! Our show will be called "Refractions: Mud, Brush and Needle", and each of us will create 10 pieces for it. Here's my first small wall hanging:
. I have finished the double bed sized quilt for my former neighbour's granddaughter and gave it to Fern on Sunday. I had lots of fun collecting the horse fabric in our travels!
November 13-14 WICHITA KS 2 concerts and a Mock Mola class
December 14 VICTORIA BC Deep Cove Folk Club 7pm
John continues to organize our huge tour in 2014, again around the perimeter of the US and Canada. The confirmed gigs are up on the website already. He has just confirmed our very first appearance in West Virginia for June 2013!! We STILL haven't sung in Mississippi or Arkansas. Help!
Here's what the Mock Mola class at Quilters Anonymous in Edmonds WA produced when I visited them in September.
