Sashiko Squares

Dear Chicago House,

I have been dabbling with a needle, white thread and blue fabric …. look at the loveliness that has resulted!

This type of embroidery is called Sashiko and is a form of decorative reinforcement that originates from Japan.I first came across it on Pinterest where there are loads of patterns …it was all I needed to get going with my own ideas.

I am not sure what I am going to to with these 4″ squares yet, but they are very relaxing to make!
