Shop Hopping

I surely do not need any more fabric, but I bought my shop hop bag and off I went today, the first day of the Nebraska Independent Fabric Stores shop hop. (April 19-29). I came home with more fabric. My favorite store of the day was I (heart) Sewing in Fremont. Bright, cheery, lots of samples. Of course, I have loyalty to our own Cosmic Cow The Udder Store and the original Cosmic Cow stores, my first and last stops of the day. I also stopped in Shelby at Karen's Kollectibles which was not part of shop hop, but I was driving by, it was raining hard, what can I say? I bought some fabric at Claus and Paus, but that store needs better lighting! I could not see very well in there. That was in Columbus and I also shopped at Sew What in Columbus. A pretty good day :)

At the Seward United Methodist Church on Easter Sunday, the tradition is to have a sing-a-long of the Hallelujah Chorus. The choir has practiced it and they invite anyone present to come up front and sing it with them. It is really so cool! I do not go sing, but I love to listen. When I was taking piano lessons so many years ago I could play Handel's Messiah the Hallelujah Chorus really well. I nailed it. Not any more, so, inspired by listening to it last Sunday, I have played it five out of the last six days. It is starting to sound better. I am going to keep playing it until I can nail it again.
