I'm model stitching too so only stitched a bit on LHN Elizabeth Hancock. Progress is progress though. I'm really enjoying using the silks on this piece.
We went to a memorial service Sat. night and a member of the choir at that church invited me to sing with them in The Messiah. I LOVE singing the Messiah so, of course, I said yes. I went to my first rehearsal yesterday and remembered a lot more of it than I though I would. So now since I'm singing in our choir's Christmas cantata and their Messiah, I'll be going to 3 rehearsals per week for a while.
