I bought this clover hanky from a vintage hanky vendor at the Oklahoma City winter quilt show probably about 3 years ago. I had just bought the green varigated size 40 thread and thought it was a good match and immeadiatly started on the edging. The plan was to have it done by St. Patrick's day. By that Valentine's day I had just over half the length done and could have easily finished it, but for whatever reason, put it away in a little compartment of my tatting supply box where it patiently lived, hopefully looking up at me each time I opened the box.
Well, I got it done by St. Pat's, I just didn't specify the year.
I proudly showed it to my husband who gave a soft grunt of admiration then held his hand behind the thin hanky material and said, 'if you blowed your nose on this, everything would go straight through.' Thanks, babe, love you too.
