Yesterday my husband I went to a matinee performance of Riverdance! Ahh, the music, the dancing, the costumes! Having watched full-cast performances on TV and DVD several times (okay, dozens of times), I wondered if the smaller cast of the Canada tour, and "unknown to me" lead dancers would be the great experience I hoped. Well, Riverdance did not disappoint! Seeing the show in person, and not only hearing but feeling the thundering of the hard shoes - it was absolutely breathtaking. I was already coming down with a cold, and with the whooping and yelling I did during the most upbeat numbers, I have pretty much no voice today. But it was oh, so worth it.
We topped off our evening at Ruth's Chris steak house - what an experience. Excellent service and incredible food.
So, another week has begun and I am trying to get back into the studio and get some more Etsy items posted. I am working on a pink Round Robin block for my crazy quilt group, and need to finish a blue memory quilt for a friend (in memory of her late grandparents). And I am designing another quilt in my head, one that I will likely offer for sale. More on that in the coming days....I'm off to do some laundry and pick up some art supplies at the dollar store, then, let the stitching begin!
