Sunday Odds and Ends

Happy Sunday to you! I'm having a quiet day of knitting and stitching, in between working on a freelance editing project. This morning as I worked on Stitch Journal 2017 I was blessed to witness a gorgeous sunrise. I didn't stop to take a shot of it, but here's an equally lovely sunrise from the other day (we've had lots lately!):

February Sunrise

As you can see, we've finally had some snow this winter. Fluffy and soft, the very best kind. It's been perfect mitten weather!

Today's the last day to save 25% on my new Leaf in the Wind mittens pattern, or any of the fingerless mitts in my Ravelry pattern store. Use the coupon code HAND25 before midnight tonight EST to get the discount (you can use it multiple times).

As for the stitching—this year's Stitch Journal project, "Presence/Absence," is moving along. I'm now at work on the second piece—a negative space embroidery of a piece of bark I found years ago.

Stitch Journal 2017: Day 38

If you'd like to see progress on the Stitch Journal 2017 plus help me raise funds for photographing and exhibiting Stitch Journal 2016, head over to my Patreon page. You can become a patron for as little as $1 a month. There are other levels, too, which give you lovely things like Stitch Journal postcards, free patterns, and even original embroidery pieces. I'm thrilled to already have 25 patrons, whose support has helped me reach my first goal of $100—which means I'll soon be ordering the stretchers for mounting the 12 Stitch Journal 2016 pieces. 

Well, time to get back to my editing work. I'll sign off with a recent sunset, and wish you a very happy Sunday.
