TIME MATTERS, COUNT IT MANY WAYS...
Brace yourselves (especially you Julia)...
I have made a LIST!!
I know you thought you'd never see the day coming but I have so many different irons in the fire as it were, that I need to just clarify what the priorities are and when they're needed for. This is just a one off however, it isn't natural LOL!!
Whilst sorting out fabric for the WI bags, I came across a selection of cottons that Sue Dyer sent me a few months ago. I had a good cutting out session ready for sewing when I need supplies for the cafe. Thanks Sue, they're really pretty!
And I finished off a couple of pieces of my stash too - that's the end of the camper van for example!
My WI are making five wreaths to be used in the D Day landing ceremonies in France later this year - a lot are needed so this is my TV crafting of an evening.
And these are for the WI craft club next Tuesday - we're painting pots! These were damp after being outside at the store so I'm allowing them to dry out first, just as well we don't need that table for a while eh?!
But the most important commitment this week is playing with my band at the Welsh Regionals contest - this is the important one of the year as your finishing position affects your placings in the sections. As with football leagues you can be promoted or relegated so it all hinges on this performance. This is the Second Section Test piece:
I rather like it! However just look at this one small section:
Even if you don't read music, you've got to admit that the composer is having a laugh with all these time signature changes! The 10/8 sections have to be treated like the Mission Impossible music, needless to say there's a lot of counting to be done.
Wish us luck on Saturday!
