Nope, not “Wearin’ of the Green”….nope, not Lent/Easter…….nope, not even Spring! It’s Prom Season! Yup, that season when limos are seen with occupants who may, or may not, drive themselves, on their way to restaurants that their moms/dads wouldn’t go to, dressed in clothing whose price tags may rival those found on wedding attire! Even our little town is not totally exempt from such excesses(?). Although, in many cases, I am very thankful that these young ones are not driving themselves and are able to attend all-night ‘After Prom’ lock-in/gatherings! Now, why do I mention this??? Because of this:
Yup, this is what was on my “design wall” a few moments ago…my first alteration of the 2013 season. Very cute! And, now, sporting a new hem. Out the door tomorrow!!
Next, another QOV (Quilt of Valor) finish (one that I wrote about here). Washed and crinkly and ready for a future delivery…yay! Also, ready for the April workshop on this block (Disappearing 4-patch With a Twist).
Cleaned up the sewing room and on to this:
Need to get in a couple of hours of piano practice as I have been asked to provide music for a reception tomorrow for this event: The International Festival of Owls in Houston, MN. Yup, I did say ‘international’! It definitely is a big deal and attracts participants from all over the globe! Karla rescued ‘Alice’, a Great Horned Owl, 14 years ago and has been caring for her ever since. Alice travels to many of the area schools educating children on owls and other raptors. You can read more here. This is the 11th annual owl event and the largest of its kind. Those registered attend a reception tomorrow to kick-off the weekend festivities and that is where I come in. “Ambiance” will be my middle name for the afternoon!!
On to the music preparation………..
