The other indulgences:
Warren Zevon and Danny Elfman recordings. And a compilation of great Wild West themes. Music is Important. I haven't gotten any new stuff for over a year.
Japanese fabric. I'm now sewing with the stuff, entirely by hand. It just feels better, doing the handsewing part. (Surprise, I find I don't actually dislike sewing, like I thought. I just dislike sewing by *machine.* I am loving hand sewing stuff again. It's like meditation, and sensuous to boot, with this Japanese fabric.) But I've been buying deadstock from kimono dealers now gone out of business, bought off a Japanese web site. Hand spun and hand woven, on some of it. Hand dyed on every part that's dyed. Who cares if it's only 20" wide? It has SOUL. I have both cotton and silk. Can't wait to get the latest bolt of arimatsu tie-dye, in a pattern of leaves. Or ikat camellias. I ordered them last week.
