White Wednesday - Two Pretty Stitches on a Hanky

Yes.  I love hankies!!
Two of my favorite stitch embellishments on one little hanky.

Top is the Hemstitch used as a decorative  stitch and at the bottom of the picture used in a functional way.  The hanky is hemmed using the Hemstitch.  

Hanky is made of fine linen that I wish I had a bolt of!! It doesn't exist in this quality anymore.
Here you see the wrong side of the hanky on top of the right side of the hanky.  Not alot of difference because the work is so fine!!

And my fully blooming Paperwhites basking in the morning sun.

Mmmm, the smell is heavenly.

Beautiful hankies, but I have to say that morning photo of the paperwhites with the lace in the window behind in them is really stunning! I love that pic!
