Sashiko(ish)

I needed a quiet day today. So I took it. I gathered together some navy linen (all layered up and spray basted), needles, a hera marker, a ruler and an IKEA glass.


Inspired by similar stitching I have seen on the Internet I sewed, quietly, happily. It's a good start on one of my Christmas projects I need to crack on with.


As per normal the colour in the photos is crap. But otherwise I am pleased with my accomplishments this morning. You?

  2. Wow, Susan, that is beautiful! Ooh, I think I might need to have a go at that, do you use a special sashiko needle or just a regular one?

  5. Oh, that is really lovely. Every time I see sashiko I think I must give it a go because I can hand stitch easily even when feeling poorly. I never do though because the call of the yarn is too much for me to resist!
