Bring me sunshine

You know the moments…when the sun peeps out from behind the clouds, or when you catch dappled sunlight dancing through leaves on trees? There’s a word to describe those golden snatches of sunshine: interfulgent. Granted it’s not a particularly pretty word, but it’s about light finding a way to shine despite darkness trying to obscure it. That positive sentiment is right at the heart of this issue: whatever else is going on, Stitch aims to put a smile on your face.

Be happy and keep stitching!
