Shashiko Embroidery

Shashiko embroidered tee was a gift bestowed to me from a dear friend who is perfecting her talent in this new craft.  Check out the design. 

Shashiko embroidery is a traditional style of Japanese needlework.  It is centuries old.  The themes usually depict flowers, ornamental shrubbery like bamboo, and repeated pattern stitches resembling waves.  A basic running stitch is used to create the deisred effect.  I love this new piece.  Thank you my dear friend.
