I embroidered these pillowcases for my mother about 40 years ago!
The embroidery has held up nicely, but the pillowcases themselves were stained
and threadbare. I've managed to get the stains out and I'm working on
patching the torn bits. I'll see how it looks/feels. My next idea is to cut the
embroidered ends off and sew them onto new pillowcases.
