from the box

Success!   I tried and tried to upload photos last night with no success.  I so was in the mood to share these.  They are hankerchiefs from my mom.  She loved pretty hankerchiefs.  I have a small box of them that she had kept through the years.  The one above was one of the first ones I pulled from the box, and I must say one of my favorites.

The above and below are pretty, too.  They all need washed and ironed but not sure they would last through a washing.  I know some of them are at least 60 years old, and probably older.  The fabric is sort of delicate.  I remember looking at them as a child.

I do not know how many times I have looked in that box.  I don't remember noticing the below clipping that she had saved.  It was upside down is the only thing that I can think.  The back did not have printing on it.  Anyway, you should be able to read it if you click to expand the view.

I have no idea who wrote it...but I have only did a light search.  

I made a couple of these blocks.  They are going to be potholders.  I just got to get busy and work on them....They are made from scraps except the light gray triangles.  And I will use scraps of batting plus insulbrite for the padding.  I usually use old jean denim for the backing but not sure I will on these.
 I have a pot of navy beans and ham cooking...I have been so hungry for them.  I am always glad to have something to cook that at least one of us wants.  

I have a little video to share with you....I think you are going to love it.
