It’s tulip time.

I love the ribbons of color at the tulip farms.

Fall Landscape

Hello All,
I just finished a new design for the Fall season. My goal was to capture with this digital composition of hand-painted paper the glow sensation our eyes see when the sun interacts with the turning color of leaves. It’s like color therapy for the brain.

Happy Fall!
Connie

Hello,

This is the time of year I always think about exploring gardens. I enjoy how plant partitions create garden rooms to be discovered. Each different and all beautiful.

A Quilt as Design

Fabric shapes, sewn together
Does makes a quilt.
Shapes in a straight line
And some are at a tilt.

Perhaps the most fun of all
The hunt for cute fabric.
Yards are, for the stash
So fantastic!

Although quilts, are often used
To keep you cozy warm,
A quilt is, without a doubt
A stunning art form.

KENZIE KIWI FRUIT

I must have grown up in the age of ponchos. I just love them.

Knit and crochet poncho in the yarn HIKOO, Kenzie, Kiwi Fruit
Let’s say you don’t think the shirt you have on makes you gorgeous, put on a poncho and out the door you go looking fabulous!

I try yarns that interest me and have the fiber content I am looking for. This yarn from HIKOO named Kenzie is from New Zealand with love — says so right on the label. I liked working with this yarn both on the knitting machine and crochet handwork. It hangs straight and keeps it’s shape very well.

As for the color name Kiwi Fruit, let’s do a test:

The fuzzy part?

The Kenzie yarn has silk noils. Being new to knitting I had to look up what “noils” meant — a decorative additive. AKA flecks of stuff.

Yarn: Hikoo, Kenzie
Color: Kiwi Fruit (1007)
Yarn Weight: Worsted
Yards: 160 yards per ball
Fibers: 50% New Zealand merino, 25% nylon, 10% Angora, 10% alpaca, 5% silk noils
Pattern: Manikin draping

Best wishes,
Connie

At the Beach

©connie-moore.com

Pebbles in the sand there are
Round because they’ve come so far.
At this time it feels so free
To be standing at the sea.
The beach stretches far and wide
Ready for the coming tide.
Treasures in the sand you wish
And there it is, one starfish.
