You made the moon to mark the seasons and the sun that knows how to set. – Psalm 104.19 NLT
I love autumn. I love the colors in the trees as they prepare for their sleep. Here in the Midwest the reds and oranges and yellows all flow together to create a beautiful scene. (I now admire then from afar since a tree fell on my car as I passed by along a frontage road a couple of months ago.)
Only God could paint this beautiful scene. It is amazing to me the difference in the landscape by just a simple change of color.
Color makes a difference in our knit and crochet projects too. Have you looked at a pattern and stared at the picture the designer includes thinking, ‘no, that doesn’t impress me’ only to find a finished project someone else did from that same pattern in different colors? When I see the new colors it looks to me like an entirely different project and I am excited to try the design.
We live in a great time with technology and crafts. If you have not yet found RAVELRY or CRAFTSY, I’d like to invite you to check them out. Both are free websites. You can look around without signing up but if you sign up for a free account you can participate in conversations and also upload pictures of your own work. On both of these sites you can link your finished project to a designers pattern. With a few clicks on your keyboard you can see what color schemes others have chosen for a project and how different interpretations reflect the same pattern.
This week take time to admire the beauty of the season that God has created around you, then search for a project to inspire your own creativity.
P.S. If you are on Ravelry or Craftsy, you can find me listed as “BearyAnn”.
