Show and Tell Monday at Make Mine Pink


Join us on the forum at http://makeminepink.com/ for Show and Tell Monday. My show and tell is a new set of pillowcases I am working on. There is a lot of satin stitches so it is taking me a while to do. When finished there will be a space for a hand embroidered monogram.

Janet, your pillowcases are beautiful. I am in awe of your work. I used to embroider, and you don't want to know what my satin stitches look like. The word lumpy comes to mind.

I like the hands, too. Very sweet.
