Movie you must see: Songcatcher. Not because it's popular--I'd never even heard of it until a few years ago--but because it makes a point about preserving who we are and what should be important, and because it's seriously relevant to the present. I won't say too much about it, but I seriously encourage you to find it and watch it.
It's almost done! Still have a bit to go on the bottom before I fold it and sew up the sides, but it should definitely be done in time for Beltane. The town's May Day celebration--alas!--falls on same day as the first day of the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. Tough decision. Tough, tough decision. Do I stick around and watch the local Morris Dancers do their thing, or do I go fondle woolly things and look for more ways to advance my fiber addiction? Tough decision.
