Happy New Year to everyone! I may be a week late but I’ve been wonderfully busy sewing, writing, and refurnishing an antique sewing table (which I forgot to take pictures of so that will have to wait for another post).
I don’t put much stock into New Year’s resolutions but I do always make the same one: That this is the year I will publish. I’ve been saying it for years but that doesn’t wear me down, I feel closer than ever to publishing with my new writing project! You know, after I finish it, edit it, edit it, edit it, write a half way decent query and synopsis then edit everything again … But again this doesn’t discourage me, I know I’ll get there and I feel like I learned so much last year. I can’t wait to see where this goes.
Christmas was a quiet affair, just the way my family likes it. We start our morning with stockings then a huge Scottish Breakfast, by the time we got to presents the morning was over!
I had picked out my present back in June; A Dixon Trad Low Whistle.
For those who aren’t familiar with tin whistles there are high whistles and low whistles, the low whistles being larger and of a lower octave. A Low D is the largest and lowest.
I vacillated for several months between a Low D and a Low G but finally picked the Low G. I’m really glad I did because even this smaller whistle is a bit of a challenge for my hands. I love the sound, this is my second Dixon Trad and they’re really great whistles for me.
Now that the Holidays are over I should be having some exciting things coming up! St. Patrick’s day is on the way which sets my heart to treble reelin’. A pirate fest is coming up at the end of this month which I hope to make an appearance at and in the meantime here is a sneak peek of my current project.
