You can’t make this stuff up, Folks! Last night we performed the cantata at Prairie View Apartments as our dress rehearsal. It didn’t go off flawlessly to say the least.
1. There is a big sign on top of the piano that says not to move it – a BIG sign! The choir director was so far away from me I could hardly see to follow her. And after the first song she stopped and asked me to open the piano because she couldn’t hear me well. I always play too loud so I was trying to keep it a little quieter.
2. About halfway through I turned two pages instead of one and then struggled to catch up with the choir – thank goodness they kept singing! I copy repeated parts of the songs and tape them to the book so I don’t have to flip back and forth – it has always worked – until last night.
3. And to top it all off – I heard someone’s phone ring in their pocket! Not once but twice!! Yikes!
Ah, the job of choir accompanist!
A few more finishes – not all Dirty Dozen finishes but new projects also.
On a recent trip to the barn I took these pictures.

An old extension ladder makes a great roost.

I’m working on my improv quilts which were #7. They will be done soon!
Also working on #12 – here it is in progress.
And that’s all for today – I’m going to pack the van for our trip to the Quilters Window in New Hampton, IA later today. I’ll tell you all about it tomorrow!
