Sashiko in Chile


Arugh! I am so behind on reading the blogs I follow. It's times like these I am reminded that I follow way too many blogs but there is just so much inspiration out there. It's hard to narrow the list down. But (thankfully) I haven't really had much time to read via the internet. The times I do hop on wifi it's usually to call my husband on Skype or update my travel blog so people know where I am and what I've been doing lately. This has been especially important because the night I arrived in Santiago there was a 5.1 earthquake that woke me up in the middle of the night. It's nothing that I'm not used to being from Los Angeles and I am fine and so is everyone else.


Yesterday, on the way to Valparaiso, a city on the Pacific here in Chile, I brought out my Sashiko to work on during the bus ride. I had started on the birds, because I wasn't still quite sure how I wanted to work my color scheme for the cathedral window-esque one. I worked on the birds and watched the vineyards of the Chilean wine country roll by. After a while, though, I realized that I didn't have all the colors I wanted to use for this design, so eventually I put it away and started planning out the other Sashiko. I think I know where I'm going with that one now. Despite being behind in my blog reading I'm at least getting some time to stitch.
