Holly Day's needlepoint is a rendering of one of Leonardo de Vinci's sketches. It shows the head and shoulders of a young woman long, loose hair spread around her, as if blown by wind. The thread is gold, brown, and black. The woman is facing down and seems peaceful, and there appears to be a gentle light on her face.

Holly Day’s published books include the nonfiction books Music Theory for Dummies, Music Composition for Dummies, Guitar All-in-One for Dummies, and Piano All-in-One for Dummies, and the poetry collections Ugly Girl (Shoemusic, 2015) and The Smell of Snow (ELJ, 2014). Her needlepoints and beadwork have recently appeared on the covers of Your Impossible Voice, Sinister Wisdom, and QWERTY Magazine.
