hanky panky

I thought I would post a sampling of handkerchiefs I’ve brought back from Ida’s house. (This is just a FRACTION of the hanky population there.)

Which of course, begs the question, What will I do with all these hankies?

    Ooooo those are cool!
    Ida’s house is really a treasure chest!
    Hmmm maybe you could sew them together and make a skirt or a quilt (obviously with some batting or whatever that stuff is)
    Then of course there’s the obvious using them as headscarves (your Carma is a freak, I love me a good headscarf).
    I can’t wait to see what you do with them!

    There should be a way to make a cute clothes for Jess.
    I would imagine that anything you could do with fat quarters you could do with hankies.
