Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; And confirm for us the work of our hands; Yes, confirm the work of our hands.
Psalm 90:17

April BOM

  Well, if  I'm down to one post a month, it can only mean it's show time. And it has been. "Next to Normal" opened and had a very successful run. I was helping backstage and Philip and Jacie were stagehands-- Jacie was actually named Assistant Stage Manager! I never got tired of hearing those wonderful voices, which is unusual because even my most beloved shows can wear on me night after night. We did not do the last weekend, though because Jacie and I were opening in our own show, "The Water Engine" at the college. I was supposed to only do costumes but one of the actors dropped out and Director Matthew was kind to let me fill in. So. Much. Fun! That's two shows for me this season; after a dry spell of six years it feels wonderful.
The Water Engine cast and crew--- how cool was it that our director arranged for an antique car club to bring some cars by for us to pose with. Too bad we can barely see the car!
Here is Jacie at the wheel-- yes, she's playing a boy once again. Don't know how much longer she can pull it off.
And here with Eric, the young man who played her dad in the show and also whose camera took these pictures that I stole from Facebook. Thanks, Eric!

This car had a really cool trunk attached to the back. I liked posing with it because the trunk hides so much of my, umm, trunk.

 The winter themed block of the month continues on over at Quilt Doodle Doodles. Here is April's block; some very simple and pretty stars. I love the gold and blue together. This was the latest in the month I got my BOM done so far. But I was kinda busy...
