Tah-dah, another pillowcase finished.
At first I pulled out browns, grays, black, but then realized it was going to make for a boring combination. I have done that before, no thanks. So I pulled out these fun colors instead. And then I started on it, and little miss said, “No, the colors should be browns and gray and black,” and of course I wasn’t going to change mid-stream. Plus, I know I wouldn’t have been happy with the finished product. So I stuck to my guns, but allowed the middle horse to be bluish gray. Come to think of it, I think I need one more color of blue in that mane — so there’s a tiny bit left to be done! But still, turned out nice, right? I ad libbed the sage brush, just to give the scene a little bit more dimension. I should put clouds above, but I’m afraid it starts taking up too much space…..
Oh, and speaking of embroidery, of course I had to pick up another packet at the store. There’s so rarely different ones, it’s hard to pass one up when you see it.
With the horse design, I was a little afraid the transfer was going to wear away before I’d finished embroidering, and I worked on it for only a week. It just seemed to get lighter that quickly. I don’t know if I didn’t iron it on long enough, or what. I’m usually happy with the Aunt Martha transfers, though.
