How very pretty they look! I have thought about monogramming some pillow cases but that is as far as I have gotten with that.


That is an excellent color mistake, I love the two together :o) I've always liked monogrammed linens, but satin stitch intimidates me. How many strands of floss did you use?


oooohhhh did you know they're working on a remake of this movie? it's currently on hiatus because reese witherspoon backed out of the lead role. altho i generally favor the classic versions i do like to see how they update/remake them and see how well they "peg" it. :)

These are just beautiful. I love embroidery. It is one of the crafts that you can do and watch a tv program and/or visit.
Love your work and your patterns.


I want to do some pillowcases too. Is it safe to wash red floss on white pillowcases ? Your cases look great ! Thanks for sharing.


Thought I'd stop by and do a little catch up on Turkeyfeathers. And as always, lovely to behold! You are just too darn crafty. So lovely. Marcia :-)

I watched that movie the other night. Kier's face was really freaky when he got ahold of that doll. Old movies and handwork just go together. I have a harder time with watching new movies and doing handwork - why is that?


stitches not perfect? they are beautiful, you silly lady--geez.
i think the color mistake is just about perfect.


Beautiful! I love the color - what a happy accident. I've recently re-discovered the pleasures of hand embroidery and have been loving your blog. I'm going to buy some transfers very soon! Keep showing us what you're doing!


What an excellent wedding/anniversary gift! Thanks for the inspiration.


Beautiful. beautiful! Do you hand embroider or by machine?


Lovely monograms! I am working on some similiar things too. :)


Such beautiful work! I love that place too--some really great bargains. Maybe I'll bump into you sometime!
Enjoying the snow????

You are so right, it IS all about the details. And mistakes? Well I love them!

Beautiful work, it makes me want to embroider again.

Your satin stitches are amazing. Mine are terrible unless it's really thin.
