Talent Show

Last night was the talent show at church; it was a lot of fun. Along side the piano, French horn, and trumpet solos, skits and slide shows, we had a table set up with all the talents from the knitting group. I was rather amazed by the variety of knit objects, 3 scarves, 2 bags, 4 pairs and 2 singles of knit slippers, plus a pair of felted slippers, 3 afghans, 2 teddy bears, 7 chemo caps, and 3 or 4 baby hats. One member also brought her baskets. Isn't this a beautiful display?


The Halestones also presented a couple of Bluegrass numbers: Man of Constant Sorrows, and I'm using my Bible for a Roadmap. We had a guitar, violin, bass, banjo on the keyboard, and a washboard for instruments.


Unfortunately, our "banjo" player was sitting in the back but here she is in the group  photo. I was present as "Seamstress for the band" (also known as "ma").  I made a blue jean case for the washboard, the camouflage vest, and my gingham apron. My part in the performance was to rock and knit. I nailed it!


The smiles show how much fun we had. Hopefully I will be able to give a link for the video (it won't be on You Tube).
