I found some vintage pillowcase embroidery iron-ons at the thrift store a while back and wanted to give it a go. The paper shred to bits as soon as I picked it up from the iron, which was fine since the transfer had already adhered to the fabric! I started these in July thinking I’d get them done for an August birthday–ha! Six months later, I finally had them done. There are over 100 french knots on these suckers and look at all those daisies! It feels great to keep my hands busy…and my mind, too for that matter. It has a way of racing and taking all sorts of turns and twists, which is very hard when you’re creating daisies and knots and stitch-stitch-stitching.
Speaking of daisies, do you have daisies? We nearly have daffodils, which means the bluebells and hyacinth aren’t far behind. Thank heavens!
