Sakura in cross stitch made during the Easter holidays

Easter 2015 was the Sakura time for example in Japan where I have a part of my family and some friends.I really wanted to be there but instead I was at home relaxing and trying to get rid of a flu.In my stash I had an embroidery,half done,I had bought from Tradera.Yes, Easter is a perfect time to do small handicrafts in the morning before you are going on a walk along the river.We already have a lot of daylight too. The embroidery is designed by someone in Denmark 1986.It's made on linen fabric with cotton threads.I really enjoyed this mostly made in pink colours. Wish you all a nice weekend

A lovely gift

Some days ago this lovely pincushion in sashiko embroidery came to my postbox.What a great surprice and what a wonderful gift in a style I really love.I'm trying to learn more about sashiko and about indigo so with this I have got new inspiration to go on with.Thank you so so much dear Sharon.
