It was held yesterday, thanks to my mum (she came over here by bullet train - it took about 4 hours! ahd she looked after my son while we were out), my husband and I could go out for concert together.
It was the first time for us to be only two of us, since my son has been born, so it was small present from my mum for us! I really appreciate for her kindness, always!
Anyway, the Jazz concert by MJO (Manhattan Jazz Orchestra) was great!
My husband and I like Jazz, but basically we love slow jazz, so it was almost the first time for us to listen to big band, but I thought it was fantastic, their performance was wonderful!
After the concert was finished, we bought their CD and there was an autograph session of the conductor also a producer David Mathew, so we asked him an autograph on the CD. (Can you see his autograph on yellow CD?)
I tried to speak to him in English and talked a bit with him! He was very gentle and we shook hands with smile!
I was so happy that he could understand my English, I was a bit nervous but there is almost no chance to speak English in Japan, so I tried it!!
We had great time at concert and I think it became nice memory of our anniversary!
By the way, back to stitching subject, I've decided to start EMS Project 2008 "Rose Sampler"!
I was very busy working on Exchange pieces in June, but as I finished them and saw my friend's beautiful piece of "Rose Sampler", I couldn't stop starting it!
I didn't want this to be too romantic nor too elegant, so this combination is perfect to me!
This photo doesn't show the colour justice, but in the real life, it's very natural and beautiful!
However there are already published Part 1 to 6, so I'm 5 months behind now...
Soon Part 7 will be published, so actually I'm 6 months behind, but as it was very fun, I think I will be able to go forward a little bit faster than usual!
By the way, thank you so much for signing up for my PIF member.
I will do drawing to pick up 3 person for the member, later tonight!
I will let you know about the result on this blog maybe tomorrow (on Monday), so please check it!
