Great that you packed so much symbolism into your design and using hands as the base makes it more... mysterious Smiley Good, clean, simple & effective design.

Thank you. I really wanted to play on how left and right hands have always been linked to good and evil, and therefore, life and death, and good and evil. I only wish I had had enough time to elaborate more.

I love everything about your pillowcases FLM.
They are a real inspiration - makes me want to take up embroidery so I can make myself something as eye-catchingly beautiful.

Thanks!
Pia.

This is definitely quite amazing... I am also reminded of henna.
I like that you made them opposite in every way
I also like the contrast of the black and white.  very sharp
yay!

Those look amazing.  I have to agree if you hadn't shown the close up detail I didn't see the white on white or black on black either.  Great job.

I'm kind of embarrassed that I didn't think of henna while embroidering them.  Embarrassed   Shows how hard I  was concentrating!
