Prepare to stitch



The other week I ordered a bunch of one-dollar Sublime Stitching patterns from Urban Outfitters, hoorah! And Katie bought a pattern, and I bought Jenny Hart's Stitch-It Kit, which I'd been wanting for a long, long time.

I want to embroider some pillowcases, so today I bought some nice ones in white and lilac from TJ Maxx. Since I'll be giving the cases as presents, I bought high thread counts. Ahhh, silky cotton, and (eventually) hand decorated--fab! Now I just need to wash them so I can get started. . . .

Oh nice! I like the pillowcase idea. I've wanted to do that b/c my great aunt and my grandmother made such lovely pillowcases. And you feel speical sleeping on them.

Jennifer--My parents have an old embroidered pillowcase! It has orange flowers with blue leaves, and I love it. I'm not sure who made it.

Katie--Thanks! Progress reports to come.
