I am a 40 something year old mother of 2. I have always been interested in crafts since my sister and I spent summer weeks with my Grandmother, who was a very crafty lady, while my mother was in college. I mostly quilt since I seem to have an obsession with owning large quantities of fabric, but at one point or another think I have tried almost every craft out there.

she made it to round II

DD passed through round 1 of her competition! :-D She will be doing 2 contemporary pieces tonight and hopefully pass through to the final classical round tomorrow. I am so happy for her, but it has been bittersweet. My mother was so proud of DD and her dancing. When DD called today the first thing I wanted to do was call and tell my mother.
I didn't get the picture from the paper yet (I haven't given up). I emailed the New York Sun hoping they would take pity on a mother far away, but no response. I did, however, receive this in my email today from DD. While she has been at the competition a photographer chose a few of the dancers to model for some pictures. Some are going to be used for dance articles, but she took a lot of extras in a number of different poses and is creating a portfolio for each dancer.

Oh My Goodness you must be so proud. She's so lovely! thanks so much for stopping by my blog and the Pavlova was named for a famous ballerina! Doesn't matter though-I would have pigged out if it was named Carl.

Your DD is beautiful and she is stunning in that pose. Sorry I can't be of any help on the photo. I live in New England too, Dover, NH that is.

Good luck tracking down your article, she's a beauty.

What an amazing pose. I didn't know bodies could do that. You must be incredibly proud to have such an artistic daughter. I'm a parent, so believe me I know this is a silly question, but didn't your daughter get a copy of the paper?

Wowowowow!! She's gorgeous! My daughter danced ballet for a few years. I was so proud and loved watching her dance. She didn't take it on as a serious life goal so never got to the point of serious competition, etc.... but she was so pretty at it and could bend in amazing ways (never THIS much, though). I am soooo impressed. I absolutely love ballet.
