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.
