Hankies~Mostly Blue...Still No BlewN or SewN
Girls Raised In Texas, especially in West Texas, keep a Texas Hankie Handy! Yep, when the Tumble Weeds and the Dirt start Blowin so does the Nose. That's when we reach for a BOX of KLEENEX...NOT Sue's Prize Texas BlueBonnet Hankie.
For that matter, there will be NO NOSE BLOWIN on any of the Collected Hankies. I'm sure that at some time, someone has used them for the purpose they were intended. That'd be...
1) Tucked in a Blouse Pocket
2) Carried in a purse with the edge showing.
3) As a coin holder.
4) As a gift sent with a Birthday Card.
5) Oh, Okay!! For some SnotNosed Kid.
My Grandmother Minnie was NEVER without a Hankie. Now she wasn't a GRITexas, but Girls Raised In Iowa needed hankies, too, and I remember hers having pennies tied up in them, and always one folded in her Bible.
One of the Blue Flowery Hankies was hers and the other one was one she sent to me in a Birthday Card.
The Crocheted Pineapple Doily was made by my Husbands Grandmother.
They have been framed for many years and hang in the Quilt Bedroom for Guests.
Speaking of Quilts....
This PastPinkSaturday I showed how Hankies were used in a Quilt Block, and I promised to show you some more of that quilt. Here, a White Hankie has been folded into a Butterfly, appliqued and quilted. All the fabrics are 1930's Originals or Reproductions. This group of blocks makes up the top center part of the quilt. I'll be showing more on a later post this week. I hope you'll come back for that, and if you missed the Hankies on Pink Saturday, they are just below.
And As Always....Thanks for Coming and Commenting!
PS...Beverly from How Sweet The Sound gave me a 'Big Ole ShoutOut' today!
So, a BIG TEXAS WELCOME to all of You
for making the trip over to Meet Sue...
that'd be ME>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
