New pillowcases for a new bedroom!

Just a quick note from me to you. I haven't taken any photos of the updated bedroom yet but I have finished 2 new embroidered pillowcases and I do have a photo of them. :)

The designs are from Doodle Stitching motifs by Aimee Ray. I had a blast doing these and my husband is pretty impressed with them too. All of the flosses that I used were of the variegated kind so I could just thread up the needle and start stitching.

I'm looking forward to playing around with more of the designs from this book. I have a couple handkerchiefs that need something special so I can give them as gifts. I think those will be my next projects.

I hope you are having a great Summer and taking time to do something creative!
Cheers!

Very special! Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog. I love the doodles. I am intrigued with taking the doodles and transferring the design onto a quilt or pillow. Terah
