Do you know what this means?
I finished weaving at about 3:30 and then walked to my warping board to start winding the warp for the scarf I must make, finish and deliver by Friday. I will make it but it won't be easy. I will post photos when there is something to see.
But in the meantime, a huge weight is lifted from me. I need to wrap and ship gifts which will be sent via Priority Mail which will help the boxes get to their destinations in time. No Christmas cards this year, alas, but something has to give because I am giving my all!
Tonight I went to a Christmas concert in which a friend was singing. The Salt Lake Choral Artists performed wonderfully. The major piece of the evening was Britten's Saint Nicholas Cantata which I had never heard before. I loved it. After the intermission there was a variety of pieces, some sung by the SLCA Young Choral Artists--children under age 12 (my best guess), Utah Premier Brass, the SLCA Women's Choir and the Salt Lake Choral Artists (=SLCA). Everything was well done but for me the highlight of the evening was the Britten cantata.
One of the wonderful things about living in Salt Lake City is the wealth of music here. I go to as much as I can afford. Tonight's concert was a gift from Polly. (Thanks, Polly!)
Now I need to get to bed because a large portion of tomorrow will be spent finishing up the grill cloth and working on the silk warp.
But for tonight I can rest easy. Hooray!
