Link to Pantone Color of the Year. 2022 Very Peri.
We were on a Zoom knitting meeting and the UPS truck pulled up in front of my house. Just as we were talking. Joanne ( in Florida) said go get the package! She had sent it.
I opened it up and discovered she’d sent me a colorful mug, filled with shortbread wrapped in the same color. So fun. Thank you dear friend.
The only problem is the photograph reads the Very Peri as blue but it Is NOT blue
She’s planning to knit with yarn in that color.
Reblogged from July 2012 there used to be weekly word challenges. If you’ve followed me for a time you may remember these images.
I enjoyed participating, coming up with photos to match the word of the week.
What I discovered is I shoot a lot of red.
I blurred my eyes to spot purple in the archives.
Yes, I made the rainbow jello to photograph. It took 5 hours. I got the recipe from my daughter Laura who found it on the web here
The one pictured is not spiked and no one ate it either. It is still in my freezer to slice and photograph with light coming through the jello like stained glass.
Purple views, white balance setting askew but it works for the challenge.
A compendium of purple.
and the cake is by Aubrey’s Bakery in Steubenville Ohio for Justin and Vicky’s wedding
Do you like to eat beets?
The beets were delivered in the farm box today.
I thought I’d prepare them for supper. After I cooked them on top of the stove for about a half an hour, I saw the pan of beautiful crimson liquid and quickly retrieved a skein of ecru wool yarn which was meant to be dyed. I’d received it from a woolswapper, Cheryl, and once thought I’d experiment and dye it with Kool-Aid. She’d sent me a skein of Kraemer Textiles undyed yarn. I soaked it in water snd vinegar first and lowered it into the pan. Covered it and simmered the pan a bit. I dyed just the one skein of yarn in beet juice and a bit of white vinegar, rinsed it in cool water and hung to dry in the bathroom. Cant wait to knit with it.
But I digress. Beets? To eat. Yes or no?
Wednesday afternoon I walked to a friend’s front porch where I was dropping something off. On the way back, I noticed this bright blue ballon and it’s red string, the green weed
I’d missed seeing the balloon the first time but there it was waiting for me on my way home.
Loved the colors.
Wonder what the story is.
Kaleidoscope in Motion at Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Columbus Ohio. In the Children’s Garden. A perfect day to play outside as it was sixty degrees.
“A kaleidoscope (/kəˈlaɪdəskoʊp/) is an optical instrument with two or more reflecting surfaces tilted to each other in an angle, so that one or more (parts of) objects on one end of the mirrors are seen as a regular symmetrical pattern when viewed from the other end, due to repeated reflection” Wikipedia
I didn’t hear the doorbell ring or the knocker on the front door but look what was left on my doorstep.
I found a beautiful bouquet from my neighbor’s garden.
A sweet note attached to the glass milk bottle.
Thank you Marion. A lovely way to start this sad day of remembrance and memories.
Your flowers are absolutely gorgeous.
