I have quite narrow tastes in music. I love classical music, a bit of musical theatre and nothing much else! On special occasions, like our wedding anniversary, my husband and I will go to a Symphony Orchestra Concert, which for me is a fantastic way to celebrate.
It always amazes me how so many different instruments can all play together to make such a beautiful sound.
On reflection, I think our life is a Symphony.
There are so many bits and pieces, joys and sorrows, friends and family that make up one's life.
How we bring it all together can make a beautiful symphony or a terrible cacophony!
The best way I know of expressing this thought is to make a quilt!
Meet my Symphony of Life quilt!
I commissioned my 12 year old grandson to draw the instruments for me, seeing I am a woeful artist and he is exceptionally good, then I added what he calls my "abstract flowery things".
I think he did a fantastic job with the drawings. I just loved turning them into applique and stitching all the details and the words that make up the Symphony.
Homespun Magazine liked it enough to publish it!
It's in their latest edition, November Collector's edition.
It's one of my designs that just makes me smile every time I look at it - definitely my favourite this year! Now I need to work on making my own life a beautiful symphony!
