Sashiko pillow

I must apologize for the completely rubbish photos, but I had to take them in indoor lighting.  It has been cloudy and rainy here, and will be for the next week if the weatherman is telling the truth.

a pillow, made with Sashiko

the color should be a navy blue, but you get the idea, right?

I loved doing the Sashiko stitches, it was a relaxing project to take out and about.  Most of it was done during little league baseball games :)

I made an envelope closure on the back of the pillow with the kitty fabric I bought last April from the quilt show I went to with my Mom and SIL.  The pillow is 18" square.  If I can get some better pictures another day, I will share them with you.
