Celtic Tuesdays.. in Maine

Last night my husband and I visited a performing arts center in Lewiston called, The Franco-American Heritage Center"... it used to be the old St. Mary's Church. The church has been revamped inside for performing arts of all kinds and to hold the history of the Franco-American's that were once so prominent in this area. They even serve raspberry filled crepes (a very french dessert) during intermission with drinks, water, soda, beer or a glass of champagne!!

Well starting last night,, there is a performance called "Celtic Tuesdays".. we saw a wonderful sister band from Scotland last night and they were GREAT!! I love celtic music and the venue was perfect to listen to this wonderful group. They played traditional celtic music and some different tunes as well. I bought one of their CD's and can't wait to listen to it today.

It was a perfect evening and something different to do on a Tuesday night.. can't wait for next month!!

A curtain, some trim and a headache...

Well, finally I've finished my first apron.(whew!) It took me a very, very long time. I'm not really a seamstress and hate patterns.. so this is my first attempt at an apron using no pattern, some trim and a lot of concentration and thinking. Not bad for a first attempt and I like the trim on the pocket very much. I used an old curtain, $1.00 trim and some seam binding. Thank heaven for Lady Caroline as my model, (had to put a bra on her to keep her modesty in tact). So here it is for all the world to see...
