April OMG : Sashiko Dishtowels

Hi everyone! Excited about this months' OMG. I'm going to embroider some more dishtowels! But this time, I'm going to use the sashiko method.

I've dyed some plain flour sack towels "indigo" (a bit darker than this image would indicate, but not the really dark blue I was hoped for), and I'll choose two different patterns, mark them, and then stitch. I've never used a sashiko stencil before ... and as you can see I have a few to choose from, as well as two different marking methods. So even though I've stitched several small sashiko projects, it will be a learning experience as I go.

The One Monthly Goal link-up is organized by Elm Street Quilts with the idea that we can just focus on one task and make progress. You can see all the new April projects -- or add your own -- on the Goal Setting page. (You can also see how people did in March on the Finish Party page!)
