We said goodbye to Mark Jass this afternoon. Here is the list of music I played before the service started.
Precious Lord, Take My Hand
How Great Thou Art
His Eye Is on the Sparrow
Mansion on the Hilltop
Just a Closer Walk With Thee
Jesus Loves Me
Peace in the Valley
Processional congregational hymn – What a Friend We Have in Jesus
Soloist – Amazing Grace
Recessional congregational hymn – Because He Lives
Postlude – Softly and Tenderly and Blessed Assurance
Many of the solos I played had a country music “blues” feel which suited Mark, I think.
I feel like I want to sew for 10 hours straight – just to get my head back to normal. I am 2 steps behind in Bonnie Hunter’s mystery – she even revealed the quilt and I didn’t know it so I have much to catch up on. And I think next week we will start another “sew-along” from our new book “Sew Charming”. Hope you all have your book by now – maybe you got it from Santa? Choose a charm pack or cut 42 – 5″ squares for the “sew-along” while I pick out which project we’re going to do.
I also have a gift quilt I’d like to make in the next few weeks – nothing fancy, maybe just a quilt from squares. It could be a quilt to keep in the car for emergencies or for a picnic in warm weather. And then there’s my New York Beauty quilt – remember that was going to be my winter project. Well, it can’t get to be much more winter than 25 below wind chill which is what it was today so I think I’d better get started – seriously started, not just playing with one block or spring will come and I will regret not tackling this technique of paper piecing which I have never enjoyed. Ha!
We’re also going to have a give away – check back to see another new book that we had a hand in.
