Some of the ladies’ handkerchiefs are especially beautiful and delicate. They arrived with their special messages:

  • ‘This is as almost as old as me, so brings back lots of childhood memories.’
  • ‘Very old, made by my grandmother born 1875.’
  • ‘This was always in my mother’s evening bag.’

Each one of them was once of special value, a prized possession of someone for a special occasion. In giving time and attention in re-creating each of the handkerchiefs, I want to give it back its value and make it special again.
