You made the moon to mark the seasons and the sun that knows how to set. â€“ 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, â€˜no, that doesnâ€™t impress meâ€™ 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, Iâ€™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 â€œBearyAnnâ€.
