Smiles and Sunshine

Custom Crochet

Red Rose Pillowcases

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.

Smiles and Sunshine!


I feel like I have always had the Smiles and Sunshine identity.  When I was about 14 or 15 I really wanted to let my light shine.  And about that time I noticed that my mother always looked prettier when she smiled.  So, I started replacing “love” or “sincerely” on my letters and emails with:

Smiles and Sunshine,
