Stitch Journal 2016, Week 4: No snow for us this week, unlike other parts of the East Coast, so I worked mostly with tawny browns. It's been an unusually snowless January here in western Massachusetts. I had envisioned this first piece in the series being mostly white. It was not to be!
I continue to stitch in the early morning, which is my favorite time of day for observing light. It's always changing—one day sharp and warm, the next soft and cool—constantly altering the colors of the winter weeds, the fields, the trunks of the birch trees.
