SOL 2015 March Challenge Say 24
There were some things I mentioned in two previous posts that I didn’t fully develop, so I would like to take care of doing that now. First of all, I mentioned the challenges that Kathy’s quilt guild completer for the 25th anniversary year. The last challenge they had was to use 25 buttons.
I had said that Kathy made a necklace and then found out that she couldn’t use it because it didn’t contain 25 different buttons. Some were repeated. Several people asked to see the disqualified necklace so here it is:
The second bit of unfinished business goes back to a list I posted of 10 things you might not know about me. Number one was that I play…and I stopped there promising to reveal what I played in a later post. For better or worse, this is that post. Any nightmares this might cause you can thank m friend Dolores. She suggested I write about this. Adding pictures was my idea.
What I play has been in our storage room for about 20 years. You can see that it makes a good base so things can be piled on it.
Pulling it out here is what the case looks like.
If you are wondering why it looks saggy that is because my aunt decided that the case needed a cover so she made it one. I still keep the cover on it.
To open the case I need to lay it on the floor.
The case measures approximately 22″ x 18″ x 11″.
Have you figured it out yet? Well, let’s open the case. Upon doing that we see a red cloth covering the instrument.
Now the unveiling.
Yes, play the accordion! This is my Magrini. I started lessons in elementary school and continued into high school. Maybe there will be a future post on lessons. Anyway, the keys are a bit yellowed with age. It hasn’t been out of the case and held for at least 20 years. Does it still make a sound?
Yes. I guess it does.
