Picture This.....

Picture this;  it's about 7:30PM, the sun is still shining, but beginning its decent behind the trees producing shadows across the fields. I'm inside looking out the big windows towards the fields.....  

My eyes and mind started seeing and thinking in 'quilt'. It was kind of like dreaming in a foreign language for a few minutes! I could see the clear blue sky in the top section, then the field was alternating strips of darker greens and lighter greens (for the shadow effects) and then about 2/3 of the way down was gray and browns for the rock wall. Going up one side is white and dark gray and dark greens for the huge birch tree and on the other side is edging in a barn red color with a splash of yellow & green for the barn & sunflowers and at the bottom are browns & varieties of green for the garden. 

Can you see it in your mind's eye!!???  (It's ok if you don't!) It was a really awesome experience! I'm going to try to capture it in a picture and maybe make a SMALL quilt of it!! Just so you get an idea of what I'm talking about, you have to visit Kara's blog! I was visiting her blog earlier in the week and was so taken by her quilt I'm sure this is where these thoughts came from! Her mom has given her an incredible gift in teaching her how to make these beautiful pieces of art! She is an amazing young lady and a blessing to know!
