Violets Embroidered Pillowcases

This is the Violets pattern from Tobin.I did a pretty good job of using the thread I had on hand, and this time I matched my colors pretty closely to those recommended by Tobin. I think there could have been a higher contrast between the two shades of purple, though. And the green isn't a shade I normally use, but it worked nicely here. Overall, I am very happy with how this turned out.
I used DMC cotton perle #8 in these colors:

Very Dark Lavender #208
Dark Lavender #209
Dark Lemon #444
Ultra Dark Pistachio Green #890
