No Swan

I'm still taking classes and just loving it. My wonderful hubby took me to Swan Lake last weekend. It was fabulous. I'd never seen Swan Lake. I've been to see the Nutcracker a few times, and I saw Cinderella at the Bolshoi. This was the best. If that wasn't enough he also made a studio for me in the garage. Mind you, the floor is concrete so I won't be able to do any big jumping, but there is a large mirror on the wall with my own barre and even a video monitor overhead for me to practice with videos. He's such a sweetie! I'm no swan...but I want to learn this so badly. I have really come to love ballet. I'm addicted for sure. When I started ballet in December I could barely lift my leg 4 inches off the ground while standing in first. I feel so strong now.

I will have a new pattern published soon in Petite Purls if you're interested.

Oh good for you! I do a ballet work out CD (once in a while ;-) and it is hard work, so I really admire your gumption! Sorry to say, I was one of those whiney stubborn kids who talked my mom out of making me go ballet class, and I do sooo regret it now.

Thanks, but you can always start now. I'm not at the "ballerina" age.
