A recent trip to the Salvos resulted in some additions to my collection of linens and handkerchiefs.
These doileys were too good to resist. Some lovely hand stitching and handworked edges.
The handkerchiefs are really pretty: again some lovely hand stitchcing and lace edges.
This pretty rose and the the tropical bird caught my eye.
Tiny flowers feature on many of the hankies. I can imagine someone sitting by the fire quietly stitching these beautiful little pieces.
I find so few people use hankies these days but they are so much nicer than tissues.
They are also great for use in textile projects. How would you use them?
