FOREST FEST 2009
Yesterday, we went to the Jefferson County Memorial Forest for a Bluegrass Festival. That is one of the last unspoiled woodlands in the city limits.
It was a beautiful day, with a lovely breeze, and just a small threat of rain. There were several very good bluegrass groups, craft booths, food booths, and education booths.
What does this have to do with quilts? It was fun seeing well-loved quilts being used as ground covers, table cloths, and later, as protection against cool breezes and a sprinkle of rain.
I saw several hand-quilted family treasures, being used and enjoyed.
The forest is south of the city, and quite hilly and beautiful. There are winding roads up to the area where the festival was held, and beautiful views from the top.
One of my favorite activities of the day was people-watching, and pet-watching. This is J.W., a Blue Tick Coon Hound, and there were lots of other dogs, all well behaved and enjoying a day in the woods.
