I don't quite know how my eight year old daughter did it. Two Nutcracker shows yesterday and one today - she's beat, and so am I. The show was beautiful - the community really puts on a wonderful ballet performance.
I know this won't make sense to most of you, but to me it's a pretty big deal. The last two years I've helped as a seamstress. The first year I was given a couple of 'routine' assignments. This year, I made Drosselmeyer a new cape.
This afternoon I was propositioned. Would I be interested in making Mother Ginger a new dress in exchange for no fees for next year's Nutcracker?
That's a lot to think about!
