Have you ever heard of Sashiko? It’s an ancient Japanese embroidery. Originally used to mend clothes, but currently used to do so much more.

I can’t remember when or where I first saw Sashiko and just fell in love with it. I took a class in Paducah this past spring and I am hooked.

I’ve mended my daughter’s pants…

I’ve made some wall decor…

I’ve decorated a tote bag…

And I’ve made a whole cloth quilt…

This has to be my favorite.

Sashiko is so relaxing and enjoyable. I am working on having the quilt design printed on fabric with wash-away ink. Stay tuned. It is taking a bit longer than I wanted but I am working on it.

Lovingly,

Lissa
