I really like that.. just wish my hands would let me crochet for longer periods but that tiny thread those kind of projects need would make my hands go numb.

I love crocheted edges on pillowcases and other linens. These are so pretty.

Random: A while back another blogger discussed the different words or phrases people use to mean the same (or about the same) thing - bag/sack, soda/pop, couch/sofa, etc. One of the words was pillowcases. I don't even remember all different words/phrases people used, but one I hadn't heard was "pillow sheet". When I added "pillow slip" no one had heard that used before. Come to think of it, I haven't heard anyone use the term "pillow slip" in ages.

There are a lot of ergonomic hooks available now that might help with the hands. However, my problem is never holding the hook, it's the hand holding the work. I can go forever with the left hand, but have to rest my right hand.
This looks like a nice portable piece.
