I used to go to Orchestra Hall pretty regularly, when I was in high school and actively playing flute, piccolo and oboe. I got to see James Galway and Jean Pierre Rampal, among others. That aspect of my life fell by the wayside at some point. If I remember right, the last time I was at Orchestra Hall was to see the newly rediscovered score to the movie Battleship Potemkin played by the Minnesota Orchestra while the movie showed. This was in the mid 1980s, before Perestroika. It was a big event.
In other news, Yarnover was last weekend. A good time was had and Rose the Gypsy helped me get all of my yarn cataloged into stash on Ravelry. She also encouraged me to start my mink stole which would involve using the yarn I bought last year at Yarnover.
Cataloging stash is a reality check like no other. I did not buy yarn at Yarnover this year.
Above is the Yarn Door at Needlework Unlimited, a favorite store I will try to resist visiting as I work on reducing that stash.
