Thanks so much for this lovely design Olga!

It's been pretty hectic here lately, as we had celebrated DH's birthday last saturday. Lots of preparation for that and so glad it went well. Some family and lots of friends had dropped by. Really tiring but fun!!

We've been to Chris school this morning to watch their concert which they've been practising for a couple of months. As a part of the music education the children of group 5 participate to IMV-project (Initiatie Muzikale Vorming), introduction to musical instruments, which is organised by the music school. The children are trusted with several instruments which they take home to practise with.
Chris did very well with the guitar he had chosen and really very proud of it. He's the only one on his group without a music page as he've all learned or memorised the notes. For such a short period of time all the children did good with the instruments the've chosen as they had only an hour lesson once a week and most they have to practise it at home.

Now, Chris wants to get lessons for playing the guitar, so we will try to see if their will be one open soon for the young ones.


I haven't been online lately, so haven't visited blogs or groups but hope to catch up soon. Not much stitching done either and do miss it too.

Thank you all so much for stopping by and hope you all are having a good week.

A lovely biscornu Mylene. I won't enter this month as I was so lucky to win last month. Good luck to everyone else though! Chris looks very comfortable with the guitar, he did very well to learn his part so well

Terry said...

Sounds like Chris had a good time with his guitar. Hope you can get him some more lessions soon.

Love the biscornu you finished. I've yet to attempt one but I've got a pattern I want to do but I'm too chicken. LOL Throw my name in the hat for this beautiful finish.

Thanks!
