Highland Piper

Well, okay, maybe I'm reaching a bit.  More like piper on a hill.  I'm from Rhode Island.  We don't have highlands here.  And not many hills, either.

I don't know how old I was when I stitched this little scene (on a pair of shorts) – junior high?  No idea. 

I'm roughly a quarter Scottish, and I went through a brief fascination with tartans and bagpipes for a while.  I think I expressed an interest in learning to play the bagpipes when I was maybe ten?  I had a chanter for a while (like a recorder), and then I guess I switched to flute for a year.  That was the extent of my musical career.  I was more a visual artist.
