    I made this wall hanging from my Moms hankies. She never used Kleenex's always pretty hankies. After she passed away 1 1/2 years ago I started this and have finally finished it. I really like it.

    That is so pretty, and reminds me that my mother always had pretty hankies and I have no idea where they are now.

    Amazing. Beautiful and a great memory of your Mom. I lost my Mom two years ago last week. I have several of her and my grandmother's hankies. I love the way you chose to do these.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Your usage of your beloved Mother's hankies is unique. You have sparked my ideas. So far I have used some in collage's of both my Mother & MIL. Thanks for the inspiration.
