And here are all 11 of my Tula Pink blocks so far.
And here is my Fussy Cut Friday star, a straight copy from Temecula Quilt Co's version of this Judie Rothermel Peace and Unity fabric.
Now for the wow part of the blog. Last night, the father type and I went to Tarrytown, NY to the Tarrytown Music Hall to see one of my favorite groups.
I have all of the Punch Brothers albums, but seeing them live is an experience all its own. Wow!
This is a lousy picture of the group, but you get to see the gorgeous stage they were on.
Here's a better pic of them -- all members bowing to the brilliance of the bassist during his solo. lol! I kept wishing the boy child were with us so he could hear this bass player perform.
What a spectacular band! I know I'm gushing, but they really were amazing. If you're wondering about their music, well, it's a mix of bluegrass, classical, and folk -- impossible to describe. AND, they always throw in an arrangement of a classical piece played by their blend of instruments to perfection. This time it was a piece by Claude Debussy. Imagine classical being played by mandolin, banjo, guitar, violin and double bass. So cool! (I have a video of them playing a Bach Brandenburg Concerto that's mind blowing.)
Oh, and if you like Bach, Chris Thile, the mandolinist and sort of the leader of the group, has an album out of Bach. All on mandolin. Amazing!
Before the concert, the father type and I had a yummy dinner at a local restaurant in the town. I had a salad followed by the sea scallops with butternut squash risotto
and for dessert, strawberry cheesecake (?!). (I admit, I was wondering if they'd brought me the right thing. But it was delicious!)
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week! And that spring is here to stay!
