Sashiko progress and Yummy Fabricky Goodness :o)

Here’s a little more of what I’ve been making at the workshop at my quilt group ……March 2010 003 I love how this is coming together. I think it’s going to be a really nice bag :o)!!

More progress on my own sashiko design too……... March 2010 002 (2)I popped into my local quilt store yesterday and found some gawjus black and white (and one red) fabrics to go with the stitcheries. Love the spots ;o).

I also found this little gem. I could only find one fat quarter so that had to come home with me!!!March 2010 015  It’s just wonderful …. it’s like a linen …….March 2010 010Of course, when I got home I started playing around with the other reds in my stash and found that my new fatty goes just perfectly with my favourite range of the moment, RouenneriesMarch 2010 005I have absolutely no idea what will become of this little lot … for now I think I shall just enjoy looking at their fabricky yumminess:o)!!!!

You are so right, Joy! Those fabrics are just gawus!! The bag is as well. I've never heard of sashiko until your posts but I love it!! Going to see if I can learn how to do that myself. Cant' wait to see what happens to all those beautiful red fabrics. Have fun!

Hi Joy,
I love this project! Beautiful stitching and lovely fabrics. Thanks for stopping by for a visit. My mother loved Shirley Temple so I think that had a lot to do with our curls. LOL! I love her, too, so thanks for the compliment!

I love the sewing fabric. Did it have anything on the selvage telling who makes it or what it is called. It is so darling!
