  1. You got me with the Van Morrison. He's great.

    1. Isn't he amazing. Music is something to put on the Beauty list for certain. Keep listening, Pandora. It heals the heart, sweet human.

  2. Beautiful song. Thank you for sharing it. :)

    1. My pleasure, Stacy. Also, I put up a few of the jewelry pieces for you to see last week maybe? I can't remember but your name is in the post header. Hope you enjoy looking through it, Hope you make some. If you can, seek out a rock hound club or gem and minerall society. They are very knowledgable about materials and you are in a great place to find amazing things to make jewelry. Enjoy!

  3. Van Morrison--one of my favorites! Thanks for linking to that video.

    1. You're welcome A., As soon as it was playing in the movie, I knew it should be put up in Monday music, but this opportunity came along first.
      Take care m'friend and fellow knitter. <3

  4. Never heard that Van Morrison song. Thanks for sharing. You sound like such a cool person.

    1. It's a special song. And, it's kind of you to say that cool thing. Thank you. You also are cool, and special. Glad we met through our blogs. Take care, and keep playing as long as you can. The world needs it's musicians- now more than ever.

  5. You and me with our salty fries and virtually ANY kind of pie. That'd make a heck of a meal.

    Also, I'm stealing heliotrope!

  6. Aha! I knew there had to be another one out there! Lolz. And yes to pie, any sort, even pizza pie.
    Take care Mz. Cat, fellow heliotropic thief.

  7. I think I was only in DC for two demonstrations. I can't remember what the second was for (but my friend was a speaker) but the first one was the last time the full AIDS quilt was on display. It was pretty amazing. I worked as one of the protectors and was assigned to two different blocks...and then realized that one of the blocks in my assignment contained a square for a friend of mine. Serendipity.

    1. Hi Bev, what a great experience to be there and hear your friend speak. And, the quilt demonstration: it was fabulous that you were there, and that one of your duties was to protect that awe-inspiring project. The fact that you were assigned to guard a block containing the square created for your friend is very touching. That is a golden memory, for certain.
