Sashiko update and the Peacock Party

I'm delighted to say that I've finished the stitching on my Sashiko panel.  Now I just need to turn it into a table runner.


I enjoyed stitching this panel.  It was fun and quite easy because the stitching lines were already marked on the fabric. 


I used gold and pink threads so that my panel would match my dining room chairs.  I also swapped the white for cream, because the white was going to be too bright.




This panel is from Indigo Niche in Australia, but there are many companies making these types of panels. 




What's everyone else been up to? I've had a busy week watching Wimbledon tennis and the Cricket World Cup.  Our team is through to the final of the Cricket World Cup and that's very exciting.

Oh Wendy! This turned out so beautifully! I can't believe how quickly you seemed to do so much hand stitching. I must say that it looks perfect on your table. The colors are wonderful, and you made a smart decision to switch to cream-colored thread, rather than white. When it's finished and being used on your table, it will certainly be a point of pride.

I love the look of sashiko. I have a book on it and the needles but never gave it a try. I think your piece has inspired me to go find that book and needles.

Your sashiko panel is exquisite! I think a premarked panel would be a perfect way to learn sashiko. I'll need to look into them soon.
