Stitch Journal, Week 34

Colors stitched into the Stitch Journal this week: golden yellow, for zinnias; lots of greens, for the grass and leaves; tawny ochre, for leaves beginning to change; orange, for jewelweed. 

I find myself focused on listening to the yard recently—cicadas, crickets, chickadees and goldfinches, hummingbirds, chipmunks, distant hawks, katydids—trying to take it all in and preserve it, to "put it by" so I can come back to all this richness during winter's silence.

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!
