Happy stitches


I have really enjoyed doing sashiko lately, especially in the early hours of the morning, 
with candlelight and a cup of coffee.

The simple stitches, the good contrast between background fabric and the colour of the thread.
I do use Aurifil 12wt.
It has a nice finish and it hold up well when washed.

I love the symbolism of the dragonfly as well.
It stands for happiness, new beginnings, change, transformation,  hope, love. 

The gifting season is getting closer, day by day. 

I am turning this finished sashiko into something useful and pretty 💙
I can not remember what I originally had planned for this fabric.
It is time to put my treasures to good use. 

As well as using my fabrics, I am also using my yarn. 
These socks turned out well 💓

The design is Pathways, by Very Busy Monkey.


Take care and do more of what makes you happy!



  1. very pretty hand work - and I wish I could knit as well as you do! those socks are so pretty.

  2. I think your socks look awesome! I love the texture, they'll be so nice this winter. Your sashiko is very pretty, I think it would make a nice pillow, happy stitching!

  3. The sashiko is lovely. Pretty socks.

  4. Sew pretty. Those socks look cosy.
