Chanter lessons

DD#2 and I had our first chanter lesson tonight. I think I'm going to love it. I've played the piano for years, and during the high school years was in all the bands and could play pretty much everything. Except the flute. Lousy flute... Anyway, the chanter is not really like a recorder or an oboe or clarinet but a little like them. Tonight we learned the basic scale and my fingers hurt. I really want to jump right to the bagpipes and start the marching but it's baby steps so the scale it is. One day, I'll be posting a vid of me and her marching with the pipeband and I'll be so very proud. For now, it's baby kittens in a paper bag.

Times flies

Has it really been more than a month since my last post? Wow.
Life has been taking over, not even much time for stitching with the exception of my pieces for SBEBB.
This is the busiest time of the year for me work wise. I co-own a dancewear store and back to school is nuts. This year has been twice as busy as last year. It's crazy, and I'm exhausted by the time I get home, but it's almost fun.
Getting the girls back into their routine is hectic as well. We are juggling sunchro, duet, hip hop, jazz, three highland classes, chanter lessons, violin and highland scholarship classes. I am SO GLAD that DH now works from home. If I can't drive, he can. Please don't ever go back to the station, you need to stay here.
I have no stitchy pictures to share. They are secrets.
Thanks for stopping by.
