This week’s photo challenge had to wait for Monday evening. It began predictably with attending the first performance of the Sedalia Symphony. And my youngest daughter is our main reason for attending. They say honesty is the best policy.

The 82nd season of the Sedalia Symphony.

Their song choices this time were right up my daughter’s alley. One song medley included “Oh,Susanna” & “Shenandoah” among others. You see, we play some bluegrass in our home and she was quick to inform me at their first practice that she had no trouble with the timing of the pieces 😉 You are welcome daughter dear.

There she is poppin’ in behind us for a photo thanks to Grandma Nancy’s help.

The star act was no surprise. Leroy VanDyke is Sedalia’s very own and as you’d expect, there was a very good turnout to hear him. Everyone knows he’ll meet you afterwards and sign stuff and talk to you. Very nice guy and so is his band. All Missouri natives. One is his youngest son.

But the surprise came when the mayor announced that our city has named a portion of U.S Highway 50 after Mr.VanDyke. He also was honored by the State of Missouri’s General Assembly. Read that here.

Sedalia and Pettis County is certainly proud of this legend of country music!

For today’s post, just sharing a sampling of some pieced blocks I’ve acquired.

These were some of my youngest daughter’s first quilt blocks. She saved them in a little sewing box and when music became her new love,

Last night’s final performance for the 81st season of the Sedalia Symphony. My baby girl plays the violin 🙂

she gave them to me. I have a little secret plan for them 😉IMG_4818a.jpg

 

These were experiments. Top one from watching a PBS show. It’s a bit wonky (quilter term). The bottom is from an online free pattern. A star of sorts, the web address is probably gone by now. This was before Windows came out. I’m old.

I’d enter these into ugliest quilt blocks category. They need to be made into a potholder? Maybe dismantled.

81 Years/ Weekly Photo Challenge

(Extra)ordinary

Mundane and meaningful objects. Beautiful everyday things. This week, surprise us with something or someone (extra)ordinary.

This week I’m sharing my Extraordinary daughter in her violinist role in the Sedalia Symphony. Last night was the opening of the 81st year of performances. Since no flashes were permitted, I decided to play with colour and have a little fun with my pic.

Too bad there’s not a challenge for Sound.

They were truly (Extra)ordinary!
