fall north

My annual autumn ramble north. This time home to see my mum and the Puppets in the Green Mountains festival all around southern Vermont, with a stops to get my fiddle fixed, see great art and some very huge and inspiring braided rugs. Then camping at a fire performers retreat where the prayer ties on my camp site brought the wind in force, but my increasingly luxurious set up with cot and the blue jean rug kept my fine new tent grounded.

a day's work

is not so much work when it's at a place like this. It was 3 days work this weekend that I chauffeured a wedding party at this seaside home, and was reunited with my beloved 15 passenger Festival van. The weather and the views were paradise. The people were really nice. The coffee breaks overlooking the regatta marvelous.

case work details

More of my lame sonore case (especially for Natalia the Saw Lady, who I'm honored to have as an occasional visitor here. She rocks.) The jersey-covered chipboard bow box (above), the flap side (below), and the heavy black canvas interior (that will hopefully stand up against the saw teeth) with snaps!

case work

Feeling serious about my saw, and worried about the safety of my exposed bow and the arms of passers-by as I lug sharp metal teeth down the street to rehearsal, I made a custom fit case, including pockets for bow and rosin and leather shoulder strap. Still waiting for snaps for the pockets, but it's a happy saw outfit now. It only looks a little like a rifle.
