An embroidered pillowcase

I finished embroidering a pillowcase for Red Chief last week (he chose the pattern from my collection of thrifted transfers). This design was slightly more time-consuming than Tiger Lily's t-shirt, but I enjoyed doing it, and I'm looking forward to starting a new project. Every blank piece of clothing or linens around our house is suddenly tempting me to attack it with a needle or thread.

I've always loved the idea of redwork embroidery, so that's what I've been doing. The designs are very simple outlines—perfect for a beginner like me—and I like not having to change colors. Tiger Lily wants me to use more colors, though, or at least do all pink.
