April has been a great month so far. We have enjoyed sunny days with the flowers blooming early this year. I continue with my art class, learning the ins and outs of charcoals. So much to learn.
I am continuing to design knit and crochet patterns, mostly working with crochet thread the last few weeks.
I had a request a few days ago to start a knitting group. I think I'm ready for this adventure. A couple ladies have expressed a desire to reconnect with their knitting skills. I am considering using The Knitter's Life List" by Gwen W. Steege (Storey Publishing) as a jumping off point. I am about halfway through reading it myself. It has multiple "bucket lists" in it that would keep any knitter busy for a long time.
I also joined the Twitter sphere this month. Making some great contacts and even participated in #knitchat. I have to be careful not to spend too much time online to the detriment of my designing activities. A rather sluggish computer has slowed me down too, so now that the computer is more healthy, I should be back to positive actions and keep up with the pattern shop listings.
On the music front, last night the Red Cedar Sounds (barbershop chorus) performed a short set as part of the local men's barbershop chorus' spring show. Next weekend we compete in our regional competition, so last night gave us a good "dress rehearsal" for that. I directed The Best of Times last night and that went very well. Got a good response from a large audience.
As I compose this, on the TV is a documentary about the Titanic. What a story.
Have a great week.
Be a blessing to someone this week.
