Even though I thought I’d never finish these sashiko coasters, I thoroughly enjoyed stitching them.

Sashiko Coasters for Handstitched Class at Stitched in Color

In yesterday’s post, I mentioned that I’m learning a lot in Stitched in Color’s Handstitched Class.


This kind of stitching is teaching me to slow down.

It’s teaching me patience.


This kind of stitching has given me a way to create with fabric while I’m away from my sewing machine.

I usually retreat to my sewing room when I need to make something, but these Handstitched Class projects have been portable enough to carry with me and put in a few stitches here and there – most often while chatting with people or watching my little ones.


I fee like this class happened at just the right time for me, and I’m grateful for that.

Plus, I’ve got some pretty coasters now!

    I’m a huge fan of always having some kind of handwork with me. I get so much enjoyment from stitching a little bit here and there when time allows.

    very pretty. I like the color combo. I am working on Aerial Grove and feel the same way about all of the hand appliqué. Relaxing and portable!

    A way to make sewing more social definitely wouldn’t go amiss in my life. It sounds like this handsewing class is doing that for you 🙂

      Thanks, Barbara! I’ve really enjoyed the relaxing nature of hand stitching, too. It’s almost like meditating at times.
