Saturday, Amelia, Bryce Eleanor, and I attended the Shreveport Little Theater's production of The Little Princess. It was a little strange because, although the actors were very good, it was a musical with perhaps too many songs. It was hard to understand some of the songs and hard for anyone who had not read Frances Hodgeson Burnett's classic to understand what the songs were about.
Nevertheless, it was an impressive performance, and I loved seeing all of the young people give it their all. Congratulations to the SLT Academy that works with these talented young people.
London Todd played Sarah, and she was remarkable.
Her voice, her smile, her poise were all enchanting.
I have continued with my one-a-day challenge,
and after beginning to doubt that it would lead anywhere,
yesterday saw more activity.
Not just a few minutes, but a couple of hours and some work in clay as well.
Here are some of Saturday's endeavors:
The color is off in these pics.
Sunday was spent shortening the shirt sleeves
with fabric manipulation--
some pleats, some gathers.
And I worked on the cuffs using patchwork and sari ribbon.
Two clay heads that have been hanging around
got some work and then went into the attic "oven."
Today, I'll work on them a bit more
and take some pics of the shirt sleeves.
Maybe...I am getting back in the creative zone,
and will be able to make a few things
that I've been thinking about lately.
