Been a bit slack with my blogging lately, too much talking and not enough sewing !!

I love to try new techniques, and when I was visiting the beautiful Mill Rose Cottage late last year, I picked up some  Sashiko embroidery panels.  The lines are pre-printed onto the panel and all you do is stitch using a running stitch.

  I used a Sashiko thread which is similar to a Perle Cotton, in a bright white colour to highlight the lovely pattern.  There are also special long needles that you should use but I found my embroidery needles did the trick.

You can see that I haven't embroidered all the outside crosses, as I am thinking of attaching a border and maybe even adding more panels for a table runner.

Now why not pop across to Martina at Sunshine Quilting and have a look at the other works of art that the lovely bloggers have done.  Always inspirational

Enjoy your day,
