While on vacation at the beach, I was itching to work on a new project. I bought two pre-printed pillowcases, embroidery thread (I love choosing from those little drawers), a hoop, and needles at the local five and dime (really!). A simple project I could pick up and put down throughout the day without too much concentration or frustration. I had forgotten how much I enjoy embroidery.
This is how Valerie's turned out. Now I am working on Andrew's and when I'm finished I'll add crochet edgings. Next week I'll share an embroidery project I worked on (also while on vacation at the beach) a gazillion years ago--when I was about twelve.
