Hitty Hatty 6

     This is what I am working on now-

     The corner of a vintage doily has been hand stitched to raspberry colored linen.  The linen is cut from a thrift store shirt.  The linen is nice quality--both strong and soft.  Love the color!  Hoop is 6 inches in diameter.  Next...embellishing.

Weekly Music Nugget 56
     I've had a Music Nuggets famine but was inspired over the weekend, and I'd like to share something from YouTube.  Below is a link to Libertango (composer Piazzolla) performed by the Berlin Philharmonic Viola Quartet. The arrangement is terrific, and the violists are all wonderful musicians.
     The group not only has great musicianship, but technique.  The members have fine orchestral playing skills which are nicely showcased  here.  This video is a gem!
