Celebrating My Blog's 2nd Anniversary

 Time really flies...
I have been blogging my crafts & sewing projects
for two years now.
I started my every first post in April 2011.

Thank you so so much
for your kind support
for the past two years...

This is a hand crocheted doily;
crocheting is one of my best needlecraft.
Therefore, I have chosen
my latest crochet piece
for this post to celebrate my 2nd Anniversary!

 I will continue to share 
my handmade creations with you.
Till then, happy sewing
and have a great week!

Sashiko Placemat

Recently, I experimented with something new!
Sashiko stitching...
a Japanese running stitch.
It is a form of Japanese folk embroidery.

The Japanese word sashiko means
'little stabs' and refers to the small stitches.
Traditionally used to reinforce points of wear
or tears with patches.

The white cotton thread
on the traditional indigo blue cloth
gives sashiko its distinctive appearance.

It is my new favourite craft.
It's easy to master
and the process is very meditative & relaxing!

No embroidery hoop is necessary;
which makes sashiko
a very portable craft!
