Hubby's grandmother gave me these pillowcases a long, long time ago. I didn't embroider back then. I'm glad I didn't get rid of them, though. I embroidered them a year or two ago and I love 'em.
See that lace on the edge. It's recycled from some of my old muslin curtains that I ordered from Country Curtains. They were too expensive to just throw away, and I'm glad I didn't. That lace came in handy!
