Pillowcase Mission Accepted

While in Branson I visited Dick’s Oldtime 5 & 10. I love, love, LOVE this store. I’m not sure if it’s the random merchandise they have that I dig so much or just the crazy, cluttered atmosphere which I feel at home in. Either way, they have an entire row of embroidering materials. If anybody is familiar with embroidering, they know that this is an extremely rare find.

As, I wandered the store (especially this aisle) I came across a simple set of lace-edged cross stitched butterfly pillowcases. I have embroidered in the past but it’s been a long time, I thought perhaps these would be a good start to get back into the craft.

Here’s a close up.

If a person has never embroidered before, this is the perfect sort of thing to start with. It has the recommended colors and color codes on the back of the packaging so you can easily get the colors you need. If you want, you can completely blow off the colors. But hey, be warned that the creators pick these colors for a reason, they know what looks best. This particular style of pillowcase also has a key of what color goes where, which is always nice. Excuse the wrinkles in the paper, it got mushed on the way home.

So, this is the creative task I’m planning on accomplishing, hopefully in the next week. I guess we shall see how it goes! I’ll keep you updated on it and any other things I try.
