I decided this week that I would do some research into Melody’s history. Especially as I couldn’t play her for a few days while the strings needed replacing.
The last month or so has been quite busy. We’ve been organising our living room and I’ve been organising my yarn stash. I’m cataloguing it all so I know what I have so I can plan my projects better.
For ages now, I’ve been wanting to get a wall hanger for Melody. She’s so pretty that I felt guilty leaving her in her case. So I hunted around on Amazon and found this one.

I thought I’d be able to get through this low patch with the right care and attention but I couldn’t. I know… Continue reading Podcast Episode 8 – Taking Some Time Out For Me
So you’ll remember last week that we had a disaster of epic proportions! Basically, my tail gut snapped. I decided to buy a new tailpiece when I got my tail gut.
*Not really but I like to be dramatic… So today I went to practice my pieces for the Grade 2 exam and I couldn’t get my violin to hold its tuning. I thought it was that the bridge that was falling over but it wasn’t. As I adjusted the bridge, I realised the tailpiece was… Continue reading A Disaster of Epic Proportions!*
