One of my favorite summer events is Symphony on the Green in my community. The local symphony orchestra sets up on the golf course, we bring our quilts, picnics, and sparklers.
These folks had the best seat in the house. They were across the lake and could watch from the comfort of their back porch.
My absolute favorite part of the event is making my sketches. After all the cooking for the event is done and packed, we’ve set up our quilt on the ground, the kids are tossing the football, my husband is munching on the goodies, I can steal away and sketch.
It’s a great way to remember the details of the day in my journal. And you never know where these images will show up in my quilts later. Maybe. Or not. That’s the great thing about creativity: the options are endless.
