I often forget how slow going most embroidery projects are but I also need reminding how much I enjoy it. At least until I’m on the fifth or sixth pillowcase.

I chose motifs from this book that I bought at Kinokuniya in Portland with Robyn last year.  Robyn received one set with this design and Erin and Braden got a set with the same motif.

The pair with satin stitch leaves went to my aunt and uncle.  It almost went in the garbage when I botched transferring the design but Chris convinced me that it would look fine stitched up and he was right.


I have an extra set of pillowcases that I might monogram for Chris and myself and I bought this adorable set that I think would be cute framed in Kate’s room some day.
