the complete hankie, with the same detailing in each corner
a close-up of a corner – this looks hand-embroidered to me, but am no expert!
another hankie, with both a feature detail, and smaller detail in other corners
this is the smaller detail – don’t you love the tiny stitches, which allow for more colour usage?
here’s the larger feature image

One of the things I love to collect when I find them are handkerchiefs. They’re small, and often quite inexpensive.
Here are two that I pulled out yesterday, in keeping with next week’s Valentine’s Day.
Hope you enjoy seeing the details, and how appropriately their small size hasn’t negated colours and stitches in their to-scale details.
(Also hope you don’t mind my combining both photo challenges in 1 post.)
There’s another posty on details to-scale over here.
