Gorgeous!

Did you actually hand do all that and, if so, how many hours did it take?

Wow, those are incredibly intricate, and your stitches are so unbelievably even!  You did an absolutely amazing job.  I never would have thought of the fuzzy stitches, but it's perfect.

Absolutely, hand done, every stitch. I had hand cramps every night to attest to it  Grin I haven't done any embroidery in a long time, so my hand wasn't used to using the tiny needles (plus I've developed arthritis).
How long is a question I've been trying to avoid thinking.  I got a late start on this challenge, since I needed to finish crocheting a baby blanket, plus I hadn't thought of what I would do for the Yin-Yang theme. Then I lost time because my mom needed help moving to her new apartment.  I think I had almost 3 weeks available, and many nights I didn't even get on the internet, and I stayed up very late.  Let's just say I'll be taking a break from embroidery!

Now I need to figure out what to do with them. I don't want to keep them just as pillow cases.  I'm thinking of either doing a single pillow in the Yin-Yang shape with the moth and butterfly as the 'dots', or maybe doing a blouse...

Thank you!  I'm glad I tried the stitch, it really turned out nicely.
Maybe I ought to do a fuzzy caterpillar next?

Here are the websites that have the images I used (with a few modifications) for my Luna and Monarch:
