    If I use light greens for the grass and dark greens for trees--is it too much green?? I do have some green/blue with small white flowers for some--but what other colors could I put in there? It's too close to try walkways...

    I'm at school--my students are finishing a test... :wink:

    Barnbum, I love your idea! That is going to be a gorgeous quilt! The pictures of the horses have turned out very nicely! I don't think it would be too much green. you could possible use different shades of light and dark to give it more of a contrast. I think with the barn colors, it will look perfect! I can't wait to see it!

    nanabirdmo--Gypsy is just fine. It took a day of watching--but I think she must have gotten a thorn in her mouth from the hay. I only think that because I had some in my gloves. So now all hay is checked with bare hands. The vet thought she was choking, but she didn't show the right symptoms... I kept her on Banamine and syringed warm water with Karos syrup in her to keep her from colicking...and checked her every 45 minutes all day. She's 100%, but I have more gray hairs. :wink: Thanks for asking!!

    live2teach--I have very dark greens for the trees--and you can see the grass shades... I'm glad you feel it'll be fine. I can see why the original mixed tans, blues and greens for the background!! I am going to limit greens in the log cabin border. Lots of blue there--since I have so much left from not using much sky. :roll:

    PS--The students are having DARE right now...I'm headed back to grading. It's nice to take a break and visit during the day!! :D

    I am also waiting to see the next step :lol: I love watching them made like this.. The internet is so cool :thumbup:

    I am glad Gypsy is fine... I knew you were going out to the barn every 45 minutes or so :( However I was too scared to ask.. Was not sure if the outcome was positive or not.. I fought a battle last week for my favorite milk goat and I did not win...

    Barnbum, I'm glad Gypsy is okay. :D :D

    Diamonds, I'm so sorry to hear about your milk goat. It's very hard to lose a furry friend. :cry: My granddog is going downhill very fast, and the vet thinks he has lymphoma. Very sad - he's only 6 yrs old. :cry:

    What kind of goats do you have? I came real close last summer to buying a pygmy goat. I hear the females make great house pets, and can be house trained. I was told the billies where more stubborn. She was so cute and little. But I did'nt feel I was knowledgeable enough to get one. But it's still in my thoughts. And I don't feel I would be fair to her, with out a companion, like another pygmy.

    Rebecca pygmy goats are cute but Nubians are just bigger and just as friendly.. Also great for milking... It is true goats can be house trained...

    Thanks all for the kind words about Lipse... She was a Nubian :thumbup: Gentle, loving and just so darned cute... She acted more like a dog than a goat :lol:

    Thanks for giving me a chance to tell you about her... Now I will set back, be quiet and wait on the rest of the quilt :wink:

    Oh Diamond--I'm so sorry about your goat. :cry: Minda--I hope all goes well with your furry friend. :(

    I know how you all feel about your animals because every time I walk into the barn and see my horses, my heart swells. Everyime I have a headache and walk into my barn--I'm pain free. I don't know what it is--can't explain it, but I know I need them.

    WOW!!!! You are wonderful~ I love the barns with the evergreens, I used to really be into photography and barns were my favorite. And I am working on a friendship quilt with a freind of mine and started a block which I didn't cut enough pieces to make to but I got a great idea from your set in horses patch, thank you!

    I had a lovely Nubian years ago, Finally had to get rid of her because my ex just could not deal with her habit of dancing on pickup trucks. It came down to the new truck or her. I never let goats in the house, but one time my ex left window open (too early spring for screens - surprised me to wake up to chickens all over the house, roosting on the shower curatin rod, and having a great hen party.

    Barnbum!!! Love your barn quilt!! If I had to make one with all my horses and ponies I would have one big enough to cover the house much less the bed!! :lol: I love how you did the pictures. I have never copied on fabric before. Got the stuff, not the nerve! :lol: I know how you feel about the barn. I feel more alive down with my animals then in the house. All ailments seem to go away down there. Also know how everyone feels about their animals. I have chickens older then dirt and I feel bad when we lose one of them.

    Thanks Loid-nounoe! Sounds like we could be good friends. :D I could not fit all my horses on here--there's one missing. I had to go with squareish photos--but was pleased to get as many as I did.

    I had to tease you all and show you my progress--ready? Here are the trees (so far)!! :lol: :lol:

    Obviously, sewn together is more fun to look at, but it's exciting to see it at the cut up stage too, imagining the next step!

    Isn't it great that we can take all those itty bitty pieces and sew them all together to make a work of art? :-) That's why I like the counted cross stitch too. You have a blank piece of fabric and with all the bits and pieces of thread (that don't go on the floor or elsewhere?) and wind up with a picture! Burnbum, how durable are the pics and just how did you do them? I have lots of mags that have the directions but I like verification from someone who has actually done it.
