This crochet needle is for thread work. Tiny stitches make for pretty lace.
For the Weekly Photo Challenge, I decided to go with the current project. It was finished Sunday evening on a special request order. It’s for an 18-month old little girl who I feel would also fit in the tiny category. I’m happy to say the customer was very pleased!
As this is the first Thursday following our national election day, I’ve saved a particular photo of a favorite house from my city. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve passed this one in my lifetime. It’s on a very well-traveled street in the middle of Sedalia, Missouri.
Presenting a”White House” pic for my Thursday Doors entry. This is a drive-by photo as it’s at a pretty busy intersection. This is 803 West Broadway. This section of Broadway was recently named after Scott Joplin, whose Missouri hometown was Sedalia, Missouri. But I have yet to hear a local say 803 Scott Joplin Memorial Highway.
According to a real estate website, this home, on .53 acres, was built in 1925.
But I wonder what the 1878 means on the bottom of that post??
This week I’m feeling a little nostalgic after a loss in my family. Attending a Catholic funeral brought back some memories of my childhood and figured I’d just go with the stuff on my mind.
My Doors entry for the week is our local Sacred Heart Church. According to a local historian, it was dedicated in 1893. The style is Gothic like the European cathedrals of the 13th century.
The inside is exceptionally beautiful. Maybe photos sometime after I ask permission?
A view looking up. Sedalia, Missouri has some real treasures.
Cornerstone laid 1892.
Can’t we just take down those powerlines for a minute?
Some side notes:
I first entered these doors with my childhood babysitter. She is the one biggest influence leading to my adult life. Loved her like my second mother. I can pretty much blame her for my chosen career path. Miss her so.
My grandfather, father and his brothers were all local painters and at some point or other were hired to paint in, on and around Sacred Heart Church and it’s other buildings. But that cross on the top was only tackled by one of my uncles. He was the only one brave enough to climb it. Don’t worry OSHA. This was before you were formed. His story I’ll save for another day…..after I find that photo of him.
