There are times when I hit inspiration overload. This past weekend our family group spent three days in the part of Oregon that is environmentally known as high desert. Although the elevations are in the neighborhood of 3,000+ feet above sea level, the landscape can be very arid. We camped around a man-made lake formed by damming three separate rivers - the Deschutes, the Metolius and Crooked rivers. It seemed everywhere we went over those three days, the geology and the views of sky and land were breathtaking in any aspect. Some of these elements will make their way into future art quilts but some will just resonate in my soul for a long time to come. What a glorious place we live in if we just go out and look around.
