Stitch Journal, Week 32

This week's stitches and colors: lots of green, dark and light, for grass refreshed by rain, tall wildflowers, shadows under leaves on rainy mornings. Yellow, for the Jerusalem artichokes shooting up behind the Joe Pye weed. Orange, for the last of the day lilies. Dusty rose, for a fading zinnia. 

It's still summer. There's no doubt about that as I type sitting right in front of a fan (which only relieves the mugginess a little). But there's definitely a feeling of change in the air, a hint of winding down. "Stitch our bright colors while we're still here," say the zinnias and nasturtiums.

If you are enjoying my Stitch Journal project, I hope you'll consider making a purchase from my Etsy Shop 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!
