I’m hard at work on my senior collection, which explains the silence around here lately – I’ve simply been at my sewing machine all the time!
Sometimes however, it’s nice, and necessary, to do something else. Something just for me – something simple. It’s the little things like soft cotton handkerchiefs in a bold, but sweet, flower print from my stash-pile.
Handkerchiefs hold a place in my childhood memories – my mom pulling them out of her purse to wipe chocolate and ice cream of my face; of burying my head into a pile of hot, freshly tumble-dried towels and handkerchiefs; of being allowed to iron and fold the cotton squares (which I’m sure was more so something to occupy me with, than me being helpful!).
I guess handkerchiefs aren’t all that fashionable anymore – even frowned upon as unsanitary. I’m not in that camp, so I will unfashionably keep these on hand and enjoy their utter simpleness.
