Embroidery Companion Sew Along Month Two: Pillowcases

Storybook Pillowcases

A few of you had asked me to announce February's project a little earlier to allow for time in ordering supplies, so here you go!  Don't worry if you're not ready to start this project yet.  (I'm still plugging away on my dishtowels.  Man... is it just me or did Sunday take FOREVER to stitch!) 

I just love this little shot of Clover Meadow! 
If you can't tell by the title of this post our project for February will be the your choice of the Storybook Pillowcases or the Petal Pillowcases.  Or if you're feeling like a stitch goddess,  BOTH!  I'm going to shoot for stitch goddess status.  February is the shortest month of the year and I was thinking about joining in on Male Pattern Boldness Men's Shirt Sew Along.  The Colette pattern just arrived in the mail today!  That little sidebar to say that it will be a challenge to get both sets done but I think I'm up for it!!!

Petal Pillowcases
Quick question for you on the Petal Pillowcases, do you think I should use our last name initial on both pillowcases or go for a his and hers kind of thing?  What are you going to do?

Don't forget to post a comment with a link showcasing your beautiful dishtowels under last month's announcement in order to be eligible for the giveaway.  A similar routine will occur for February's giveaway as well.  More details on what will be given away in February later! 

Happy Stitching!!!
