Hankies Galore-ious...Pink Saturday #6


It's Another Hankie Pink Saturday here at CollectInTexas Gal.

Last Saturday I shared a few Hankies from my collection.

Some as Prized Hankies for framing.
Some used in my Very Victorian Quilt.
And, Some memories that Vintage Hankies bring to mind.

My favorite Hankie Ideas, Thoughts, and Memories came from Your Comments.

~Sarah uses them as bread basket liners and cocktail napkins and has boxes of hankies that belonged to her Mother and Grandmother.
~Jil confessed to having BAGS of vintage hankies, and can't resist buying more.
~My Arts Desire Sue can't bring herself to cut into hers either.
~Beverly has a few hankies that belonged to special people in her life.
~Claudia was inspired to StartANew Collection....of Hankies.
~Peggy openly admitted to being a 'HankieHolic'.
~Lynn's the brave one who has cut and folded...only ones with holes, for pockets and to decorate pillow cases.

There's more ideas and memories if you would like to visit last Saturday's Comments.
Thank-you all for your Hankie Ideas and Comments.

Did you ever see a more beautiful Hankie arrangement for Quilt Blocks than the ones my Friend Ann created in her all Hankie Quilt? Every block is embellished with lace, beads, pearls, embroidery and more. I've selected the ones with Pink to share with you today.



Thank-you Ann for allowing me to Photograph and Share your Beautiful Hankie Quilt with my Pink Saturday Friends.




As promised, this week I've shown several more blocks from my Very Victorian Quilt. Here are three Heart Blocks. Each one is only 4 inches square, but they sure Pack ALotta Love!

I'm going to be a Texas Early MockingBird...Texas State Bird...for this Pink Saturday. Due to my High School 45th Reunion starting Friday, and a Must DisConnect of the Computer for Carpet Guys...I'll be posting on Friday. That will give some of you a head start on Saturday. Hope that works for Ya'll. Notice that I linked the Gals that made Hankie Comments? Please visit one or all of them for my Pink Saturday ShoutOut! Thanks to our Hostess Beverly at How Sweet The Sound...be sure to pop in and visit the other Pink Saturday Participants.

And As Always...Thanks for Coming and Commenting!

So pretty. I'm going to start a hankie pankie collection of my own, for fun and will figure out what to do with them....later. I can put them in a box or basket (which I collect) for now.

As usual, I am not disappointed with all of the pink goodies I get to see on Pink Saturday. With fall in the air and the days getting shorter, Pink Saturday is going to be more important than ever to bring a little sunshine into my home.

Wishing you a weekend filled with good food, good company and much l♥ve.
