Stitch Journal: Weeks 26 and 27

Today's post covers two weeks of my Stitch Journal project. I don't like to fall behind on posting, but the past couple of weeks were full of work on design projects and editing, and since that's paying work—and blogging about the Stitch Journal isn't—I prioritized my free time accordingly. If you're a creative entrepreneur, I'm sure you know what that's like!

The last June stitching included meandering "trails" in green, orange French knots for the Monarch butterfly, browns for the chipmunks and groundhogs, yellow for the finches.

July's piece began with lots of green in running stitch and back stitch, and lozenges of yellow (for patches of sunlight) and pale beige (for the undersides of maple leaves that wind scattered across the lawn).

The world is so lush now. Even if I stitched from dawn to dusk, I don't think I could really capture the richness of the green hues that greet my eyes every morning.

If you are enjoying my Stitch Journal project, I hope you'll consider making a purchase to help support it. Funds are needed for stretchers, professional photography, and a website to serve as home for this project and my other artwork.

If you don't wish to make a purchase but just want to support the project, you can do that, too. Thank you!
