Isn't it lovely? Ok, so its' not the best photograph. I need to work on that. Semi translucent handwork is not the easiest thing to take photographs of. I think I do a better job with two year olds. At least I have more practice at it.
This is my favorite of the three. It's English silk and was a gift to my great great grandmother (I got the greats wrong on a previous post) from her sister. Aunt Louisa lived in England and did not emigrate when my great great grandmother did. Louisa still kept in touch with her sister and came out to visit on more than one occasion bringing lovely handkerchiefs with her as a gift.
