Last year when we were in Bergen, Norway I stumbled upon a needlework shop and picked up this pillow cover to stitch. It's taken over a year to finish, mostly because I ran out of thread. I was saved by the dye vat. I picked up similar thread and dipped it in the indigo vat. With a bit of careful blending it ended up being a pretty seam less blend.
