Thanks everyone! It was a lot of fun to do, though I got REALLY sick of the condensed mosaic stitch by the time I was done with that section.  Grin  My poor hubby had to listen to four hours of me whining about it the whole way from Wisconsin to California.   Wink Wink

I'm really happy with it, considering this was my very first attempt at anything non-cross stitch.

Now I have no idea what to do with it though.  Huh  I'm leaning towards getting some fusible webbing and putting it on a squishy pillow in my meditation corner. 

Cedarwaxwing: I was worried about the embroidery-on-a-plane thing too, but no one even questioned it. I kept my foldable travel scissors and needle case in a separate ziplock bag for going through security and had no problems.

Thanks for the reply. I guess it helps to put them in a separate bag. Can't wait to try it.

Aha, I finished it up tonight without really meaning to.  Wink

I found a great buckwheat pillow at Bed, Bath, & Beyond this afternoon but I didn't like the sea-green cotton pillowcase it came in.  So, a quick trip to Jo-Ann's for some white flannel and a new pillowcase was born!  I measured all of the dimensions of the original pillowcase and just re-created it with my fabric.

I used Steam-A-Seam2 (double-stick) fusible webbing to attach the embroidery to the pillowcase.  It was my first time using it and it worked really well.  Grin

The back of the pillowcase:

And here's the pillowcase I made with the buckwheat pillow that fits inside.

I absolutely love it; the flannel is so soft and cozy and the pillow has lavender and chamomile, so it smells wonderful too. Yay!

Fantastic!  I've recently taken up embroidery again after more years than I want to think it's been... let's just say decades.  Anyway, this is very inspiring!  I'm going to bookmark it for when I'm ready to look for a new embroidery project!

That is so awesome and well made. I love looking at projects that combine my love for neurology and embroidery, it's a perfect combination  Smiley

So cool!  I'm in neuroanatomy class right now, and we have a brain coloring book, but just think how well one would know the parts of the brain after stitching them for hours!  Lovely work!

May your blades never dull!
