Sassy Scrubs

Ms. Carrie decided she wanted to look sassy and cute in her next new set of scrubs. I told her not to worry. I had the perfect top and fabric waiting for her. We meet tomorrow but wanted you all to see them and send your feedback. Enjoy!!

My Piano Music Blahs...

For those of you who don't know, I started taking music lessons January 2008 and have been a faithful student for an entire year. However, I have the music BLAHS (emphasis) right now. So here's the skinny.

I arrived for class on time and informed my teacher that I have a real bad problem with recognizing my notes for the left hand (bass clef). She asked, what is the problem about recognizing my notes and I indicated that my real problem is knowing which note is which then moving my hand to "C" position. She indicated, the reason I have problems with the bass clef is because I am right-handed.

Now I ask, how am I to conquer this problem. I indicate my frustration and before you know it, my class mate Hannah (eighth grader) is also having the same problem. And Hannah already plays an instrument. So the teacher begins the class with our surprise from last week and she gives us more instruction on sight reading.

Before you know it, she is writing the grand staff for us and tells us to practice it. I return home with this notion that I was going to complete this grand staff if it kills me. So while I cooked breakfast this morning, I decided to write my grand staff, just like in class. Wouldn't you know it, the blasted thing did not come out like it did for the teacher. I am so mad I could just SCREAM. The thought I had was, I am not turning this in until I get it right. Music BLAHS just are not going to get me down. Those notes are going to get on that staff NO MATTER WHAT!!! And quitting is not an option.

I Am So Excited...

Why? Well my friend Faye has nominated me for the "Sisterhood Award." Thank you Faye. Awards are such fun and most of all they inspire and encourage a person. So do your part and give someone inspiration to do something they have not done but wanted to do. Encourage someone to continue with their dreams. Faye does not realize what she has really done for me. A testimonial will come in due time. So enough said and on with my selections for the newly created "Sisterhood Award."

Finally Finished!!!

Hurray!!! I thought I had three UFOs, but I didn't. A mad search ensued this afternoon looking for them and I realized they had been sold on a whim. That left me with one and it was intended as a gift for a very special person.

Here's the last of my crochet (except for the bed - previous post that I will update later). I think he's quite cute.

What do you think?
