I haven't posted in several days, mostly because of being really busy,,and because of the weather. But last night I didn't post because I went to an awesome concert at the Ryman Auditorium. I went with my niece and her husband, we went to see "Nickel Creek". They are one awesome bluegrass/rock band! It was a absolute great concert. The Ryman is a very old building in downtown Nashville that use to be a church back in the early 1900s. Then the Grand Ole Opry was held there for many, many years. They built a new auditorium at Opryland and for many years the Ryman sat unused and run down. They refurbished it several years ago and it looks very close to the same as it did when it first started. Old wood church pews in side,,and very intimate. The accoustics are amazing and one of the best venues to see a concert. And being in Nashville the band had several other muscians come up and before with them on the stage, one of them was Bella Fleck from the Flecktones,,whom I love!
The pictures are not the greatest because you could not use your flash inside during the concert. As you seen they had very few instruments,,but boy was the music delightful. Below is a picture of my niece Emily and I inside the Auditorium.
Before the concert we went out to eat at a great restaurant downtown. The after that we walked around downtown Nashville. If you have never been there its all bars and famous restaurants. It rained on us but we had umbrellas. We walked down to the water front park and I made a picture of Emily and A.J.,,the Titan's football stadium is in the background across the river.
So I just had a wonderful night last night.
Yesterday I spent most of the day finishing several projects that I had been working on.
I finished my "Daisy friendship quilt piece" for Lisa which I will mail out tomorrow. I am pretty pleased with the piece and I am hoping that Lisa will like it. She said that she didn't mind that I post it here. So here it is.
I also finished my "chunky book" pages for October's chunky page swap in one of my groups.
I did like the way they turned out too. For me to like 2 things that I created in one day is unusal,,I am very critical of my art and always unsure of it,,but love it when I do approve,,my own worse critic,,lol.
Today I have to finish another quilt page for another swap that I am in. I also want to work on some ATCs to swap with my good blogger friend, Rosa. And some greeting cards for some other friends who have sent me some nice fall cards.
The weather today is so nice after a rough past 2 days of high humidity and high winds, and storms and flooding rain. Driving home last night after the concert was not fun,,I hate driving at night in the rain as I can't see very well at all,,but I made it.
I hope all my friends are having a great week-end!
