many skeins were of this beautiful variegated collection. I knew I wanted to embroider with this, but could not determine how and on what design I actually would end up working this in with.
I also recently came upon a box of different colored rick rack........... Rick rack..........something I have never really taken interest in especially when it comes to my embroidery design. However, sometimes, trying something different can be such a refreshing change.

As you remember, I showed you my latest embroidered pillowcase set and had not decided on the edging at that time. I usually go for a more vintage and romantic approach, using lace or a crocheted edging for these. But since this set has been different even in the way I chose floss color...........I decided to do the same on the edging. The blue rick rack makes it look a little more modern, yet it has a welcome home look to it.................I think.
The variegated floss, helped capture all of the colors that I used in the design when embroidering and helped gap the space between bottom design and the middle design.
I used a feather stitch for this and it runs all the way around the pillowcase.
And now, the set has a cheerful and and perky look to it.......
don't you think?
How about you?
Do you use rick rack or variegated threads in your work?
I would love to hear!
