When I first came up with the idea to make scarves from Vintage Hankies, I was looking for color. When I used up all the colorful hankies, I was left with a ton of white hankies. Individually, they are subtley beautiful. But I wasn’t sure how to use them. Then Sherry asked if I could make her a white scarf. For some reason it never occurred to me to make a white scarf. This is how my mind gets stuck and closed. And Sherry asking me and my not shutting down the idea, is one way my mind stays open.
This is another way. I was going through my stack of hankies and saw this white hankie on top of the bright orange hankie. It was just too beautiful and (now that I see it) an obvious way to show the intricate hand work of the hankie. I’m not sure where this is going, but it’s laying on my floor, tempting me to stretch my mind a bit more.
