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)

Happy days to you.
