Cashmere Quilt

Decide to make a cashmere quilt — baby stroller or crib size (30″ x 40″). It isn’t done. Last step will be adding the binding — still deciding on red or black. Here are a few of the steps along the way.

Karen and I had a good day at the Sinterklaas Benefit Craft Fair. Laura joined us in the afternoon and we played some much appreciated music. What a lovely day.

On Sunday November 18 I’ll be setting up a table with my band mate Karen Levine. Yes, we’ll be playing some music. BUT we’ll also be selling handmade items: ceramic fortune cookies, one inch buttons (the proceeds of which will go to Occupy Sandy), recycled cashmere and wool sweaters, skirts, mittens and handwarmers, and note cards featuring images from Karen’s recent batik work. Here are a few photos.

How is it possible that a day starts with a list of “to do” items a full page long and proceeds to unfold like this:

Lots of emails, updated the Sinterklaas Rhinebeck website, got a chiropractic adjustment (thank you Nori) meeting with Ana Sanjuan over fries and coffee (really), lots of project management stuff (got a couple of web design projects in the works), found ceramic mugs for the Community Music Space to put their logos on, worried about friends and relatives in NY & NJ, visit with Grace Welker the brilliant word smith, lovely dinner with Bernard Greenwald, Sasha and Trevor, played some music. Ready to call it a day. Oh yeah, and thanks to Susan Goodman Goldstein for bringing the last of our wonderful CSA share.

(Mind you this isn’t even a complete recounting).

And at day’s end, reviewing the morning’s list, I find I have nothing to check off.

Time to revisit the organizational and prioritizing process!
