Here’s this week’s Flashback Friday…
This green vest is as close as I could get to a green theme for today’s Flashback Friday. I made this vest when I was 11 or 12, and I thought it was so cool. I guess at the time it probably was! Apparently I must have liked to wear it when I played cello, because I have several pictures of me wearing it while I was doing so. Did you know I used to play the cello? Yep, I sure did. Unfortunately it’s been a long time now since I’ve played (my mom finally sold my cello because about the only practice I got was during my lessons), but I would love to play again someday. Maybe this time I’d practice! I still feel like a cellist at heart.
I’ll never forget the speech my first cello teacher, Joanne Grant (on the right in the picture above) gave me before she moved away. She said that one day years from then she expected to hear about me being a famous cellist. It really was quite an inspiring speech, it was like she actually believed I could do it! Awkward… At least I kept up with the sewing.
