I learned about Sashiko and Kogin Embroidery. Sashiko (刺し子 "little stabs" or "little pierce") is a form of decorative reinforcement stitching that started in the Edo era. Sashiko was typically done with running stitches and white thread on indigo cloth. Common motifs are waves, mountains, diamonds, and pampas grass. From what I understand Kogin is similar, but is a counted thread technique that's done on evenweave fabric.

Color SwapCinder ColorSwap.jpgStitched with DMC thread, 2 over 1 on 14 count Aida. Pattern
Color TheoryCinder ColorTheory.jpgBased on this gorgeous Spirited Away print I bought at Anime NYC. DMC: 169, 967, 3608, 703, 728, 958, 3746, 336, B5200, 310
Design: Inspired by ColorCinder Design InspiredByColor.jpgInspired by Ice cream, Andy Warhol, and her own color palette.
Unique TechniquesDiscovered a Tutorial for:How to make a Cross Stitch Lampshade
Artist Studies: Durene JonesCinder Studies DureneJones.jpgI really enjoyed this quest! It was so fun to watch the back stitching bring it to life. Before this I had only done traditional backstitch as an outline. It was a little nerve wracking to sometimes jump more than one stitch. I decided to forgo the french knots for now in hopes that I can add beads later. Eventually I plan to finish it as a flatfold using Siri's latest tutorial. Pattern
Stitch SpotCinder StitchSpot.jpgI enjoy stitching on my couch, but whenever I want to get some serious stitching done I sit at my desk.
Topsy TurvyCinder TopsyTurvy.jpg2 over 1, plastic canvas. Pattern addapted from Stardew Valley Cross Stitch book I usually stitch / and then \ so I did \ then / and I actually had to write myself a reminder on my chart so I didn't forget. I made the pattern because my Animal Crossing Island is called Seasoning so I wanted to make a McCormick Spice jar design
Stash SystemDiscovered organization inspiration:Embroidery To Go Bag I've always been on the look out for a good travel cross stitch bag to use on the subway. I love how the floss bobbins are stored in this pattern. I think the outside pocket could hold a qsnap.
Revisit a UFOCinder RevisitUFO.jpgThis is by far the largest project I have attempted! It felt good to make some progress. The red square is what I managed this month. [https://www.etsy.com/listing/698735170/monopoly-us-cross-stitch-pattern?ref=shop_home_feat_1 Pattern]
Take InventoryTook inventory of their stash:Pattern Stash with Notion I have been wanting to use Notion for a while now and figured this was a great time to see how it works! Before this I had patterns saved that I wanted to stitch all over the place - Trello, Etsy, Google Docs. I love being able to see everything all in one place and Notion has been fun to use!
Unconventional CanvasCinder UnconventionalCanvas.jpgI was initially drawn to the idea of doing some cute and stitching on a planter box (which I will probably still do at some point). But I realized that I may never have another reason to cross stitch on a waffle fry. I used Charisma yarn by Loops & Threads.
Scissor SoireeCinder ScissorSoiree.jpgMy favorite are the pretty floss cutting ones. We've also got some kitchen and office scissors in there. The small red ones I keep in my knitting/crochet bag. And I never remember that my multi tool has scissors but I didn't want them to feel left out.
International StyleTraveled the world and discovered:I went (more like fell) down a bit of a rabbit hole. I wanted to research Japanese designers since I am learning the language and can't wait to be able to communicate with the community.

I learned about Sashiko and Kogin Embroidery. Sashiko (刺し子 "little stabs" or "little pierce") is a form of decorative reinforcement stitching that started in the Edo era. Sashiko was typically done with running stitches and white thread on indigo cloth. Common motifs are waves, mountains, diamonds, and pampas grass. From what I understand Kogin is similar, but is a counted thread technique that's done on evenweave fabric.

I found a couple of lovely looking books (1,2) by a designer named Saeko Endo. I love really the geometric style and use of color.

Unfortunately I couldn't find Saeko Endo on any social media. But the Kogin hashtag lead me to [Satonobou https://www.instagram.com/p/CDScNCiHDTz/] who practices this style of stitching. I particularly love the journal cover that they recently stitched.
