I have a real attraction to barns.

Whenever I see them on the horizon I zero right in. I have always been fascinated with them and in fact would love to have one of my own.

When I am driving in my car, especially here in the mid-west, I  take tons of pictures of them as I pass them on the highway, even if I am driving the car.

I think what appeals to me about them most is that you can store lots of stuff in them.

If I had one I would turn it into my studio space. IMAGINE the space you would have to work. I would also have four long wooden tables to work on. By long I mean 10″ x 4″. Just visualize the projects that could be spread out and left as you worked around the room. OOOOH

Yesterday I drove out to the DeKalb County Quilters in DeKalb, IL to give a lecture on Free Motion Machine Quilting, I will be teaching the same class on Saturday there, and saw so many wonderful barns on the horizon.

Seeing all the barns and fields filled me with peace and joy, I loved my ride.
