I needed a small bag to put my sashiko stuff so I made this one with my favourite fabrics of the moment. I used indigo azuminomomen (fantastic texture 😄)and pieces of vintage style fabric made by @olympusthread😍. I love the fact that you can cut a square of fabric (number 2000-12) and attach it with sashiko stitches. It gives the bag an authentic look, don't you think? I might make some more bags and you'll find them on my website. You can already have a look at the different fabrics. The bag has a handy pocket for my thimble, thread cutter and thread😉

Look at these 3 ladies, busy, busy, busy... Which fabric should they choose? Which colours are matching? They thought they would have a relaxing evening but boro requires a lot of thinking...😅 Thanks again for coming and send me a picture when you are done😄

Today I visited my husband's headquarter in Sweden and look what I found! This precious doll was a present of a Japanese company. Beautiful Japanese craft isn't it?

Look what I found at the #historicmuseumoslo in Oslo, Norway! It looks like a big temari ball and anyone can decorate it with colorful threads😍. I asked what it was and the lady told me  it was just something for the visitors to have fun with. I showed her some pictures of temari balls and she was amazed by them as she had never heard of them 😉
