Quilters Production

I'm trying to get back to my twice a week posting. :> It may be a whole lot easier after tomorrow - my last day at work!

My friend J and I went to "Quilters" the musical production Friday night. We had a wonderful time. We went out to dinner first at Crabby Billy's and got their seafood chowder and split the bourbon glazed salmon. Hmmm, delicious! Walked around the corner, got a latte and hot chocolate to go and went to the play. No rush, no fuss - perfect timing all the way around! It was great just chatting and enjoying it together. Thanks for a great time, J!

Quilters was wonderful. You laugh, you tear up. Very moving. Convinces me I was born in the correct century - I wouldn't have made it back then - life was hard for women. I had seen it performed at the University when we first moved back to Lincoln - so probably in the late 80s. I loved it then too. Of course, one of my favorites is the monologue about Sunbonnet Sue quilts ... I feel the same way about them!!

The Loft is a small theatre in the round - so there really aren't any bad seats. I know one of the actresses in the production - it's always so much fun seeing her on stage - she's in her element there. What talented women are in it. Wonderful voices, great acting. It was hard to believe there isn't a quilter in the cast! They said they looked up quilting on the Internet! Can you imagine the amount of information they got! But they even mimicked the motions of quilting or piecing in the correct manner.

This week is the major packing push - 19 days until we move to Oregon!

So as of today you are now retired? Congratulations!
The play sounds wonderful. The local theater group performed it here a couple years ago and I missed it.
