Friday Five Degrees of Separation: T-shirts and Ukuleles

1. This weeks journey started with the fabulous whip many beautiful things so little time.  Kath is really lovely as well and I just think she (and everyone who runs those kind of meta-blogs) must work so hard to keep us inspired.  Which it does...

2. Kath led me to Connie's This Old Dress and her Necklush tutorial.  I loved them so much, I made 4..I would add to her tutorial that a stretchy, newer jersey (like stretchy shirt material) makes a more sophisticated looking necklace. The one below is made out of a shirt that didn't fit, but I can't find the tag or receipt for...

3. Connie led me to the gorgeous ukulele stylings of Sophie Madeline...her album is just amazing! There isn't enough ukulele music in the world, if you ask me. There is even a song about knitting!!   Here is her equally delightful beard song:

4. Searching 'round 'tinternet for more info on the fabulous Sophie, I found there was a strong correlation between people who listen to Sophie Madeleine and Lisa Hannigan. Now I am the last person on the planet to know that Damien Rice's former band member Lisa had an album out? When I first heard "O", I searched high and low for a solo album by Lisa...well now its here. I love this song (and the fact that they are playing in a pub...isn't that where you always hear the first chords of something magical??)

5. Well apparently, Lisa was on Jools Holland recently and I missed it, but I did find this lovely version of the Noisette's new song Atticus (not sure if non UK residents can see performances on the BBC...but I do love the Noisettes, so find them if you can!)

Have a nice weekend, all! Kev is off up a mountain for work. We all have our fingers crossed he makes it!

Can you guess what I am doing this weekend???
