Rainy Monday ~ Slow Stitching Day from Life in the Scrapatch


My stitching is done on my 

This is for a blog hop project coming in May
so it will be awhile before my finished project appears on my blog.


Here is a sneak peek.

It is a cool and rainy day here in the northeast and I am
spending another day enjoying with my hand stitching  in my cozy home.


This is my project for today.

I already stitched the white tree design on navy
 and am making another pink cherry blossom 
and will be using the fabric on the left to complete the project.

Sashiko Slow Stitch Sunday from Life in the Scrapatch



Today I started a new slow stitch sashiko project.


I really enjoy these small hand stitching.

This is the back of my project.
I use solid fabric that does not have a front or back side for sashiko.
I have no idea if I am "doing it wrong."
I find and use methods and techniques that work for me.
I mark with a Clover Chaco Liner pen and it rubs off a little as I stitch
but it last long enough for me to stitch and it is not permanent.
I actually put as few marks as possible.
Sometimes I ...

Being unable to spend hours and hours quilting as I used to do in the past, due to pains in the back, I just quilted this baby quilt with big stitches, following the sides of the small squares of the four patch blocks, using variegated colored threads. The final result is quite pleasant.

Sashiko table runner from Wendy's Quilts and More

The Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival is on this week, so it's probably a good time to show you my finished sashiko table runner.  

I would love to go the Tokyo Quilt Show one day.  In fact I think I'd rather go to the Tokyo show than the Houston show.  The Japanese women love their hand work, and so many of the quilts on display in the Tokyo show are hand pieced and hand quilted.  That's more my style than many of the heavily machine quilted quilts at Houston.  

Anyway, here's some photos of my sashiko ...

Winter Blues Blog Hop ~ Stitching Joy from Life in the Scrapatch


My 1st Sashiko Stitches

In my little corner of the world "winter blues" is a malady,
a blah feeling that comes each winter and can take root
 indoors during long cold winter nights.
Occasionally it is tempered by days such as these 
when the sun shines bright on new fallen snow. 

My favorite way to meet and beat the blue days of winter,
when it is so cold even the air feels tinted icy blue,
is to learn something new.
Sew I did ... :-)

This simple stitching project is my choice  for the

I have been away from my machine and doing some slow stitching this weekend.
This is progress on my ...



This is very easy to carry along with me in these pretty sunflowers project bags.
I did not make these bags,
I have a similar pattern, but I do not enjoy sewing bags so I bought them from
someone who does  a very nice job of sewing them ... 


These pretty bags were made by

I am not affiliated in any way with this shop.
I am just a happy customer.
