A million tiny stitches....

I have taken a million tiny stitches lately and it has been very therapeutic. It all started on my recent trip to Peru where I was inspired by the geometric shapes and bright colors. There was a sort of simplicity to things that I had the need to capture.

So I started to put the two together that lead to this journal cover.

I found it so inspiring and stress relieving that I moved on to another one, this time without batting.

Next I switched up the shape and followed up with more of the same.

Well I admit that this is no different than traditional 'Kantha' or 'Sashiko' stitching but I got into it by chance and since have been really studying this style of quilting. I even started a Pinterest board where I bookmarked good examples of of both styles. One advantage of having quilting as a hobby is you can work on whatever you like whenever you like and that is exactly what I am doing. I am not sure how long this phase will last or what will come of it but I am savoring it at this moment!


  1. Really pretty! I love the colors and I really love the picture of you with the goats with flower crowns. I'm just starting to learn sashiko so I'm following your Pinterest board.

  2. Wow! That stitching is amazing!

  3. Your handwork is so beautiful!

  4. Phases in art are good. They give you focus. I love your circles so much!

  5. I am amazed by the perfection of your circles. They are so pretty and even especially the green, pink and white one. What a great idea for a small portable project. Planning to visit your Pinterest board for more examples. Thanks for the link!

  6. Beautiful. I love your thoughts about working on whatever you want to, nice inspiration.
