sashiko wall hanging

a sashiko wall hanging that I have made and that will go on display with some of the items of clothing I have mended which you can see in more detail here .
the hanging has 10 different sashiko stitches on and also the whole hanging has yellow circles on which is hard to see in the light, they are the same size as the filled in circles, you can see if you look closely on image three.
i have chosen to represent different stitches on a wall hanging to demonstrate the beauty of the simple running stitch used decoratively in intricate designs. the clothing i will exhibit will show the usefulness of the stitch in order to mend and enhance once deemed unwearable clothing, the stitch on the clothing is used more freely and less precisely, similar to the damage or stain on the garment itself
