Striving for perfection. It's a blessing some times. Working through beautiful crafts and knowing your hands did the work for the final product is so rewarding. Sashiko is a pretty simple craft, but perfecting it takes time and practice. I'm putting in my dues so I can feel more confident teaching, so I'll be ready for the next course when it's available, and so I can help keep this craft alive.
Currently I'm working through a new sampler that I finished designing this week. Started it Saturday and I'm one third of the way though. Considering the lack of time I've had to work on crafts - it's good progress. (Archery, science fairs, game days, etc - can't escape them and that time with family and friends is why I'm a stay at home mom. ;)
I'm working through quite a few samplers of late and wondering what should be the final project to use them and combine them. Currently I'm thinking a lap blanket. (I have WAY too many bags - so those are out!) Adding them into an apron design could be fun too. Any other ideas?
The PDF version of this Sashiko Sampler with 3 Traditional Designs is available in my shop. Stitching order instructions are included.
