Black Scroll Flowers Embroidered Pillowcases

This is the Swirl Flowers from Bucilla. As I discussed way back in... oh my gosh, June? I decided to stitch this one in all black. I am so pleased with the results.
This may be one kit where I should have used regular, divisible 6-strand embroidery floss, rather than my preferred cotton perle #8, which is thicker. The stitching is rather close and I'm afraid some of the details have gotten lost. Eh. Live and learn.
I still really love the all-black flowers on the crisp white pillowcases. Very modern.

He he... very ancient, you mean! Blackwork was extremely common and very much in fashion in the Renassance.
