A Little Nana Sadie Rose News

We've made the decision and the fees and applications have been mailed and approved: We will be doing two small church craft shows in the Northern Virginia Area in September!

The first will be at St. James Episcopal Church in Alexandria on September 19. The second, the following weekend, September 26, at St. Luke's Episcopal Church, on Fort Hunt Road in Alexandria.

Both are small, short shows, only on Saturday during the middle of the day - it makes doing a show manageable, and a lot more enjoyable! I am hoping that those of you who look for me at the National Capital Cat Show every year, will consider making the trek to Alexandria one of those two weekends to see me ;)

I'll be sewing up a storm the next few months in preparation, so look for some photos here soon. And remember you can always look for my things in the etsy shop!

Ten on Tuesday! I'm Back!

Okay, it's Tuesday again. And I liked this one, knew I could easily do it, and so here I am!

This time it was to name 10 tracks on your favorite Pandora Channel and that channel is the Zuill Bailey channel. Don't know that name? You should. He's an amazingly gifted cellist. There's a bit of a family connection in that his sisters took violin from my sister's husband (I believe I've got this right) and they lived nearby my sister as children (in the Northern Virginia area). He's an artist who has performed with my beloved RSO at least three times in recent memory (tho' I missed his last concert when I was ill - DD got to enjoy my ticket and she brought me one of his autographed CD's as a thank you!). Yes, you can read more about Zuill at his website. The solo cello pieces listed below were all performed by him.

1. Meditation from Thais by Massenet (this was a violin piece and is probably my single favorite piece of all time)

2. Clair De Lune by Debussey

3. Suite for Solo Cello #1 in G Major (Bach)

4. Donnie Darko film score by Andrews (I was totally unfamiliar with this piece, not aware of the film...guess I should look it up, as the music was very nice)

5. Suite for Solo Violin #5 in D Minor by Westhoff

6. Passacaglia for Solo Violin in G Minor by Biber (not Justin, I promise you) - this is also known as the Mystery Sonata

7. Fantasia for Violin by Telemann

8. Suite for Solo Cello #3 in C Major by Bach

9. Suite #4 in G Major by Demachy

10. Love Story Film Score by Francis Lai

Immediately following were two film scores I adore (one film I've seen, the other I've not) - Chocolate by Rachel Portman and The Hours by Philip Glass.

I'll just say that virtually everything on this channel I love. There are a lot of other channels I listen to (from Fleetwood Mac to 1940s Swing to Chris Botti - Jazz trumpet - and back to Joshua Bell, violinist), but this one is probably my favorite. I love that I get to hear things I know well and enjoy, and that I can learn about new ones that otherwise would not cross my radar. I invested in the "premium" channel of Pandora so they don't get to me with ads, and it's been well worth it. For $5 a month, I'm listening at work, at home, through the night. It's truly an affordable luxury.

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
