Quick Craft update...

So my crafty urge turned into 2 projects,
  1. fabric flowers which will be adorning some pillows I am making from sweaters, pics and tutorial links to follow
  2. the most adorable, if I do say so myself, hankies I made for both my parents...

The linen hankies are a little wrinkly because I forgot to take pictures right after I was done and after I gave them to my parents they apparently got put away and lost their crisp look, (I had to take pictures a few days later when I remembered).

I used basic iron on patterns from Joannes and just kind of went for it.  I have embroidered a few times before at my aunts house but not much so I am pretty proud that these came out looking like they did.

The hankies were left overs from a "lot" of vintage hankies I bought off eBay for our wedding in 2009.  Each bridesmaid got one in thier clutch that my sister made along with their wedding jewelry but now I wish I had had the time to embroider their initials on them.

So cute! I'll still take one with my initial if you are looking for more projects! ;)
