Here are the pillowcases I begun yesterday. I was really looking forward to using the veregated #115 DMC embroidery floss that I purchased at Heart of the Home, but they are turning out differently than I expected. Here is the package with the example on it:
Here is how mine are turning out so far. The variations on the thread go from very dark red to a bright red. The color reminds me of black cherries. At first I wasn’t sure if I liked them, but I think they are growing on me. And they might go very well with a bedroom that is themed in black, white, and red.
