sashiko style

I keep reminding myself to take it slow and take a deep breath (hard for me) which is why sashiko style embroidery in the evening is a good remedy for the fast paced style of summer with small children.

This piece of fabric I have had a long time: a cotton gauze with ditzy flowers. I used red sashiko thread to stitch around them and made it into a pillow cover with a deep red back.
