Snow and Sledding

We had a little snow before everyone arrived for the holidays.  The Boxing Day storm added more--good times on the sled!

 Brian took some great shots during the height of the storm.

Peterborough Chamber Choir

A performance of "Who'll be a Witness."  The recording was made on December 13, 2010, to be entered into a competition sponsored by WGBY, the public television station for Western Massachusetts.

FWIW, I am standing on the second row in the middle of the group--Chet.

Update - January 7, 2011
Looks like we made it past the initial screening.  WGBY sent us the following:

Dear Singers:
Thank you for registering and submitting your materials to WGBY’s choral competition. We are very pleased to invite your “Small Adult” chorus to take part in the upcoming TV series, Together in Song: A Celebration of Choral Music in Western New England.
The next phase involves scheduling participants to perform at our studios in Springfield. The tapings will occur throughout the month of February beginning on Tuesday, February 1st.

This is the quilt Sue made as a wedding gift for David and Amanda.  She sewed a label (shown below) on the back of the quilt that gives the basic details.  

The finished quilt is 108" by 108".  The block print bird that David and Amanda used as the visual theme for their wedding is quilted into each corner.   And, stitched in cursive around the outside edge is a quote from the book that was read at the wedding, A Lovely Love Story, by Edward Monkton.  The quote reads, "Together they stand on the hill, telling each other stories and feeling the warmth of the sun on their backs.  And that, my friends, is how it is with love."

It truly is a beautiful work of art.  And, since the fabrics were contributed by so many wedding guests, it will a source of wonderful memories for David and Amanda.
