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