Sashiko stitching in Cardiff

Saturday was a day of Sashiko Stitching with Cardiff Quilters...

...and what a lovely day it was too!

Lots of gorgeous bits of white-on-blue stitching...

...using Empress Mills' Klona Cotton and machine Sashiko Thread...

...mostly machine, but some by hand...





Lots of patterns drawn out...







...samples done...




...and tea drunk.






I made up some Genmaicha tea bags for everyone so that they could drink Japanese tea while doing Japanese stitching!




It was a lovely day!

Thanks ladies.
