Something a little old world

it has been very busy in our household. someone has started school and someone else has started kinder! after much labelling, they were all set to go.

i needed an outlet so i made this hankie envelope and added a sachet of lavender. i stitched up each side which you can see and then blind stitch on the angle.

i got this hankie and a couple of others at an op shop a while ago and wasn't quite sure at the time what i would use them for. i found them while cleaning my 'office' (actually looking for something else which i never found) and it just came to me. i love the old style embriodery. now of course i will be on the hunt for more whenever i go to an op shop!
