A Glorious Autumn Day

That light and the orange changing leaves.

It’s been a late wet fall for us here. So you can understand how excited I was yesterday afternoon,  when I went stepped out to a perfect autumn afternoon.It was a perfect autumn day. It was just beyond description. The light washed over everything , you know how in the fall, the late afternoon light changes  to a warm rich golden light? That was yesterday, with the orange leaves back lit by that golden light. they almost glowed. I ran so fast to get my camera, I almost tripped over my own feet in my race for the camera. Here’s a few of the pictures, my ode to Autumn.

Fall decoration. I have a huge fall table quilt in my shop on Etsy, so here’s my idea, which would work if you have a covered entrance. I made a fall bouquet out of the leaves and voila! I just tacked this all up in 2 seconds, imagine what you could do with a little more time!

Barbara Harms-Up Close and Personal I've been a painter most of my life. When I was introduced to quilting, I fell in love, jumping in with both feet. I loved quilting, but began to miss the creative freedom painting offered. Then, I discovered mixed media art quilting, I was finally home. My Process & Approach For me, it's the process of creating that holds the strongest attraction. I love starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges, then I follow where it leads. My style is fairly loose and instinctual. I don't a great deal of pre-planning.The creative choices are made as I work on a piece, are based on my gut feelings at the time. This can lead to quite a few changes in direction. The outcome can come as a surprise. I love that element of surprise. Sometimes everything just comes together & I think that this is one of my better ones. I can’t wait to show someone. I feel like a six year old, running home from school, a drawing in hand, excited to show Mom. At those times I'm smiling like the Cheshire cat.
