    Sharon,
    Haven't started the applique. Frozen by the unknown! I just can't make myself start. sigh! Today! I'm going to get it going today! really!!!

    ShellyQ, This is going to be a little 'stand alone' wall hanging. I have ordered a few more projects to make so I'll be able to hang them together. I just need a wall!

    Patsy, The border is a batik that I just happened to buy last spring. When I started looking for an appropriate fabric for this project it just leaped out and hollered, "Me! Me! Me!" And it was right! :lol:

    Steve, I've not read any books. I just jumped in and started working on this. Marcella may be able to recommend a book. She's better about researching stuff than I am.

    And to everyone, Thank you for the sweet words. Most appreciated! Time to go get some applique started!

    The above sites give you a little history on sashiko. It's basically a form of embroidery using a running stitch. Sylvia Pippen has some gorgeous designs.

    If you google Sashiko you will find lots and lots of information and many patterns. Have fun!
