Recent projects...

I just finished a set of wedding handkerchiefs for a bride in Florida, featuring the popular vintage birds in a nest design. This design is actually from a set of vintage patterns that belonged to my cousin's grandmother, a professional draper and all-around talented needlewoman.

Her wedding colors are mango and clover, so we incorporated those colors into the design in the edging, beaks, and text color. I created the hankies themselves from scratch, using a white linen and hand-cutting all of the scalloped edges.

I'm off work today, so I'm going to be busy stitching letters for a large order of groomsmen's hankies. I feel blessed to be so busy!
