I did a little Doodle-Stitching with Aimee Ray tonight. I have been wanting to embroider a few of Grandma’s pillowcases that we got when she passed away. One of the reasons I like the plain white cases is because I have so many quilts that I couldn’t possibly have matching pillowcases for all of them. Plus, matchy-matchy isn’t always my favorite. So I grabbed Aimee Ray’s books for some inspiration and took over the couch.
Some sweet birds are my choice for pillowcase #1. This design is from her book Doodle Stitching: The Motif Collection: 400+ Easy Embroidery Designs. The other book I have of hers is Doodle Stitching: Fresh & Fun Embroidery for Beginners. Both good books!
I made some good progress–tomorrow night I will probably finish it up. (Baseball makes for a great night on the couch being lazy. Go MN Twins!!!)
So much more to blog about! Tony keeps asking if I shared about ___________ or ____________ or ____________. Gotta get you all up to date on more of my domestic exploits.
Cute! I love the birds. I just finished up a pillowcase using the motifs from the Doodle Stitching book myself! Love that book!
