Stitch Journal, Week 37

Stitched this week: more light brown/beige back stitch, for wilted and crumpled nasturtium leaves. Brick red back stitch, for sumac leaves turning scarlet. Sheaf stitch in grey-brown, for tree trunks in shadow.

And a couple of different greens, on different days (sheaf stitch and running stitch) for leaves that haven't turned color yet. Green is still the dominant color in the landscape, but there's a feeling of diminishment in the air. The hummingbirds are gone and the tall Joe Pye weed and Jerusalem Artichokes have stopped blooming. I'm trying not to mind the later sunrises and the cooler mornings, but I can't help feeling sad. I hate saying good-bye to summer!

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!

I am also sad when summer ends.
I have been enjoying your stitches.
