It's not officially done yet, but it's close enough (ok, one pillowcase is done, the second one is almost done) - but you get the idea.

I found a quote from Robert Browning.  It says, "So, fall asleep love, loved by me, for I know love, I am loved by thee."

The paper is what I used for a template.  I ended up having to free hand everything because I didn't give myself enough space for the thread width.  I think it might need a few more embellishments, but I'm not sure.  Any input would be great!

Mom wants me to sell the pattern.  And I'm on the fence about that.
