Cookies and stitches

You can barely make out the design on the fabric, with her initials (t.q.) and I am very happy with the color I chose. Although these hankies always turn out nice, they are very delicate and probably will never be used as intended. I am now on the hunt for a nice handkerchief weight linen that can be both dainty and practical. Here it is so far:
