This is one of my Mother's hankies. I think her Mother crocheted this. It's just the sort of thing my Grandma turned out time and again. Its lovely workmanship, I'm glad to have it. Every birthday for the grandchildren, we would get a birthday card and a hankie Grandma had edged. Sometimes she sewed lace on to it and then just did a chain stitch around that in a pretty color. One of my favorites was a white handkerchief sprinkled with small pink flowers and had a pink crocheted edging. This has been a tiring day but I got our bedroom back in order. I always take out the extra books, bedding and music stands etc. from the sitting room and stuff it into our bedroom while our 'company' is here. So, I've gotten that back to cozy, which is a favorite description of my life and one I aim for often. I saw a picture of a bed pillow that had a wonderful redwork design embroidered on it today. That fits right in with 'cozy' and even....elegant. I'm trying to look forward and not back too much. I loved your comments and loving support. It means alot to me. And.....it helps. Hugs to you too.
