8 sashiko sewing projects for the modern home by Susan Briscoe. A good book for beginner sewists and stitchers.
From the book cover: "Currently a major sewing trend in crafts, interiors and fashion, sashiko uses big stitches of white thread on blue fabric t form geometric patterns and textures" From me: of course a lot of us are suing other colour is both fabrics and threads :-) Sashiko stitching has a classic simplicity that makes it at home in both stylish minimalist environments, and in creative home-y environments.
