The 2 o’clock sun unfortunately filtered through the blinds, faintly illuminating the stage manager’s station. No need for a work-light during the matinée performance of ESCC’s “GODSPELL”. Suitably costumed, in case an understudy might be required, Hedydd gathered tools of the trade around her, to assist in the task of calling the show: script, com, flashlight, pencil…chocolate. Lots of chocolate.
Day by day, or show by show, there’s always Hedydd
You can see more photos of the show on Facebook at ESCC Theatre.

Hitty Hedydd celebrated Girl’s Nite Out – Paint The Town Purple with ladies from her community, enjoying music, companionship, food and fun while supporting Domestic Violence Awareness. She found the prettiest spot in all of downtown Enterprise, a traveling case filled with lovely vintage linens. Vanolli & Co, definitely a favorite spot for a favorite Hitty pastime…shopping!
“I enjoy being a girl!”

Over the Presidents’ Day week-end, Hedydd once again joined her theatre family in a re-mounting of Vaughn McBride’s “Pass My Imperfections Lightly By”, a one-woman play about the life of Mary Todd Lincoln. She made herself useful, of course, assisting with last minute technical issues and checking the props.
Framed! Hedydd helps change the gel for a lighting instrument.
Before the doors opened, she made sure everything was in its place, ready for the hands of the actress – the scrapbook, the old photos, a handkerchief.
A glance at Mary’s memories
There was also a quick moment to inspect a most interesting prop: an old stereopticon.
A stereopticon – the View-Master of yesteryear

Throughout the year, the leavings of various needle-work projects, rather than being tossed in the bin, are placed in a special wooden bowl. Since most of the knitting, crocheting and embroidery is done for the Mad for the Farthing Crowd, they naturally feel an affinity for these bits and bobs and, this year, Hedydd decided to assume control of the intended project: helping birds build nests.
A year’s worth of needle-work
Though Winter is just shy of being a month old, signs of Spring are showing in the garden: days are lengthening, daffodils are pushing through, seasonal visitors have been noted. Soon nests will be in order.
The moss-filled hole in the old crape myrtle is a suitable place to cache roving and yarn.
Yarn was stuffed into suet cages and draped over the gardenia, over the privet, the rambling rose and the even the branches of the neighbor’s crape myrtle, drooping over the fence. There was certainly enough left to grace the front garden, Hedydd knew, and some to share with the neighborhood children.
Hedydd hopes for many beautiful and cozy nests come Spring.
If you’d like to join the Crowd and encourage nest building in your garden, please refer to this article published by The Humane Society of the United States.
