You know what's funny about this... and the left hand being the black/evil pillowcase? It's superstitious to think that someone who is left handed is usually evil. Mostly because the devil is supposed to sit on the left shoulder. Many people (like my grandmother) who are superstitious would force their children to be right handed (like my mother) by whatever means (like tying their hands behind their back).

Anyhow... I really really like this. It's almost like a palmist's pillowcase! Fantastic job.

Those are stunning! I love all the little opposite details. The hands kind of remind me of henna/ Smiley Well done!

Your pillowcases are fabulous!

I too am totally upset that they are taking the servers down to fix things. Why can't they just let things stay broken? I don't care if I can't move due to lag or if quests are bugged. If I leave my room my mom may make me get a job.

Beautiful stitching (and I love that you used a reverse chain stitch for the 'reverse' hand!  hee hee).  Love the idea, and great execution!

Your embroidery is exquisite and I think the opposites could be so many things, just as you stated...but, even without any "meaning" behind them, they are simply beautiful pieces of work...well done!

I absolutely love the black background with the white stitching...so glad you found the pillowcase!
