Looking like spring

Don't know if this will keep going, but it sure is lovely.  Cold nights but blue skies and sunshine during the daytime.  Great!

Saturday night was a new adventure.  As a Christmas gift from my son and daughter-in-law, last Saturday we went to a Symphony Bach and Wine Tasting event.  It was all orchestral pieces - an orchestra sized as it would have been during Bach's time.  When the entire orchestra was on stage, there were perhaps 40-45 musicians.  Really excellent and lots of fun.  New experiences.

This week I am getting ready for the Sewing and Stitchery Expo.  An annual event.  Very exciting if you have never been.  The advertising says that there are over 480 vendors at this event.  There are classes all day on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  Sunday is a shorter schedule.  It is quite amazing.  While I don't need any fabric, this is THE place to go to find the latest notion, tool and gadget.  On Wednesday, the day before opening, I will take two classes.  More details will follow, but they are a Marti Michell class on making a pineapple block and a class on two-handed fair isle knitting.    Then on Thursday and Friday mornings I will "work" at the Expo as a CTA volunteer.  We help in classes (ticket taking, seating, assisting the instructor, etc, etc)

these are some of the classes offered

Thursday morning I am working in Room G.  Don't these look like great classes to get to audit.  And then my friend Julie from Maine is coming to meet me for lunch.  Won't that be great!  Friday I am working on a rotation as a substitute.  I'll take photos and show you.  Great adventure.

Happy days to you.
