Show and Tell Monday


I'm a little early -- this being Sunday -- but I did want to post this embroidered pillowcase I just finished. Of course I have to do "Hers" now. When that one is finished I add it to my website. These His and Hers pillowcases are all hand embroidered by me and have several different stitches.

Join all the ladies at http://makeminepink.com for Show and Tell Monday.
