I took Kyla to Manitoba Provincial Senior Honour Band in Winnipeg at the end of last week. It was a great experience for her and I really enjoyed the concert. If you are interested here is a link to the recordings. I can't decide if my favorite piece was "Rest" or "Gandalf" - from the Lord of the Rings Symphony. While in Winnipeg I treated myself to an early Christmas present - a new to me intermediate level clarinet. This is a significant upgrade from my student model from the 1980s. I have enjoyed playing again over the last year (after a 25+ year hiatus) and decided it was time for a grown up instrument. Kijiji is a wonderful thing!
I dyed one more round of infinity scarves to replenish some inventory that I sold while in Winnipeg.
You can see in this photo that are living room renovations are progressing. (No thanks to me. The dry-walling is now complete. Nolan also got a coat of primer on and the ceiling painted while I was away. Now to decide on a paint color....
I have also been preparing my samples for a Poinsettia Table Runner workshop that I am co-teaching this weekend.
I did get some very exciting mail. I received the paper copies of our "Pedal to the Metal" pattern. We have been having the printer ship them to Kathy so I always have to wait a little longer to get my hands on them. I am very pleased with the end product. They are available in our Etsy shop, or if you are local just give me a call and I would be happy to get one to you.
On other Highway 10 Designs news, here is a little peak of a quilt that has now safely arrived in Flin Flon for binding and a photo shoot. Hopefully it will be making a full appearance in the very near future!
