I will be spending a lot of time with my friend Violetta, a Courtesan:
Opera Tampa production of La Traviata, which starts rehearsals this weekend. I enjoy playing one or two operas per year, but I really admire those musicians who play it all the time-- compared to regular symphony orchestra work, opera is longer, more tiring, and much more difficult . But it's fun to do it every once in a while. I've played this opera several times before. (SPOILER ALERT: Violetta, the main character, dies in the end. Big surprise.)
On a more seasonal note, maybe some of you have seen this before. It's the Cutest Easter Craft Ever!

Also, I'm nearly done with the T-shirt quilt! It just needs a binding and then I'll be able to show you. I also have a new sort of scrappy quilt top that's nearly done, so stay tuned for upcoming projects!
