The penultimate sample. The first curved one and it came out better than I thought it would.


Definately not perfect but it will do. I have also sketched out a second curved design but realise that it needs to be lowered by half an inch as it is too close to the first sample.


Again, it comes with free cat hair ha ha

One more to go and another sample finished! As a hailstorm has started outside it might be a good time to start – the snow may be gone but winter has not.


The cat has settled on my knee so I will be popping over to Kathy’s Quilts to look at everyone’s work for Slow Sunday Stitching which you can see here

What are you stitching?

      Thanks! My mother taught me embroidery when I was 7, so I’ve had a lot of practice!

    Love your Sashiko stitching. I have a friend who does it on jeans. Where do you normally use it?

      Thank you, I’ve never done it before. This is a sample for a City and Guilds qualification I am doing in Patchwork and Quilting. I have a lot of samples to do as well as assignments. It comes to an end this June when we have our graduate show. I enjoyed it though and will have to think of a project to use it in.
