Oh how I enjoy stitching sashiko.... sitting by the fire, while watching TV... in dentist waiting rooms... at book group...
This way I'm slowly working on my sashiko sampler...
I wish the beautiful indigo showed better in these photos. Perhaps it's time to upgrade to a "real" camera? I'm using my old iphone - I love the convenience.

Here is one of my favorites, Tortoiseshell (looks like flowery hexies to me!). You can see where I mistakenly extended the pattern when I was tracing it. Those lines will wash right out. I may redo the block - the stitches aren't as uniform as I'd like. But then again..... when it is pieced into a whole quilt... it won't really matter... and I'm not a perfectionist.

Little by little.... I love working with this indigo!
