I wanted to make my Nan something nice for Christmas, and also something that she could use.  She always has a hankie on her so thought she may like some new embroidered ones.  All the patterns I have used are from Aimee Ray's brilliant Doodle Stitching Motifs book which I absolutely love Smiley  I embroidered 7 hankies in total.  I made them over two evenings.

Smiley Thanks everyone!  The cat one is definitely my favourite too.  Nan has two blacks cats so quite appropriate Cheesy
