In A Slow Stitch Mood

I didn’t make it into the sewing room much this week. I’m working on a big project at work that I just want done, and I’m mentally fried by the time I get home. No thinking or sharp objects for me those nights.

Instead I worked on the pillowcase. I’m stitching the ribbon with an outline stitch in #5 pearl cotton. It may be more texture than is comfortable on a pillowcase, but I really like the look.

I want to experiment with threads and texture on this project. I can always use the pillowcases on the guest bed, where I can see them without having to lay on them if the texture is too much.

These are going to take more time than I originally thought they would, but I’m OK with that. It’s more about the journey.
