I spent all weekend at Irish Fair
, which was great. I danced with Mooncoin on Friday and Sunday, and on Saturday we had an hour of teaching dances in the ceili tent. After our last performance on Sunday, the man and I hung out in the hospitality tent for volunteers and performers with the rest of my dance group and had free drinks and snacks and listened to the bands play. The weather was beautiful; sunny, cool, and breezy.
Our dances went (mostly) really well. I think I am finally starting to get over my fear and nervousness about dancing on stage. I still had the fear, once in a while during a dance, that I would turn around and none of the other dancers would be there, or that they'd be doing something different than what I was doing, but mostly I felt confident about my dancing.
It's a little late for advertising, but the Irish Fair happens every year, the 2nd weekend of August, and it's all free, so if you're in or near St. Paul, MN, do check it out.
Now that that's over, I finally feel like I am returning to normal life (and sewing!). I'm still trying to avoid being a slave to the Project List, so I'm just working on whatever I feel like at the moment. Right now, that's a couple new aprons and a new (plain & practical) skirt, but my pocket hoops are still on the agenda somewhere. And of course I'm still making progress on my sweater!
