I decided to enter the challenge just last week, and so I was working against the clock but still wanted to create something homespun and handmade.
Naturally the sea birds needed some sashiko waves...
Settled on larger geese against a fishnet tenugui background.
Here's Daisy promising not to eat our cabinetry. She's just over a year old now and we are catching glimpses of the great dog she will become. ;). For the past couple weeks I've been saying "I think we've turned the corner with Daisy." But she's still not allowed in the kitchen unattended!
What is tenugui anyway? I wrote more about it in my previous blogspot (A Quilter By Night) but here in a nutshell:
tenugui - a Japanese woven, hand-dyed cotton towel. They are traditionally used by people who work with their hands - carpenters, chefs, gardeners, etc. Long and narrow, they can be worn as headbands or neck scarves, or used as hand towels.
