Recently Paula showed on her blog a piece of Sashiko that she had done and this reminded me that I had several pieces that I had purchased at a local craft show about 6 years ago.
Now me being me (and probably you as well) I put them into the cupboard to do later and immediately forgot about them.
They would probably still be there except for Paula.
I finished this in 5 nights while watching TV which is a first for me(stitching and watching TV that is) and I have started the second one.
The top and bottom border lines are straight even though they are looking crooked in the photo--I didn't set them right before I took the photo and I am not going to do it again because you get the idea anyway.
The fabric is white and the thread is navy (duh) oh and don't think I am clever with the stitching because the pattern was printed on the fabric when I got it.
If you want to see the one that Paula did then go here but you will have to read her wonderful story before you get to it.
And by the way if you haven't visited her blog before then you must go and check it out.
She is the most talented lady that I "know"--she will have a go at anything to do with a needle and thread and she writes the most wonderful stories on her blog that will have you rolling on the floor laughing.
This lady can make a story about dirt (and I mean the mud variety) sound like a comedy and you will imagine that you are there at the time it is all happening.
Thanks Paula for bringing a breath of fresh air into my life.
