Ironing And Painting Vintage Hankies To Make More Scarves

Ironing hankies before painting them.

With the snow, it was a black-and-white day.  Except for the birds at the feeder, and there were plenty of them. I saw them out of the corner of my eye when I was ironing more hankies to paint on.

Two big bright red cardinals kept making me turn my head. One blue Jay that cried a warning from the top of the birch tree this morning also brought some color.   There was a big speckled bird that I’d never seen before at the suet,  along with the regular chickadees, sparrows, a downy woodpecker, and a flicker.    The morning doves usually just feed on the ground, but today I saw one roosting on the fence.

I have nine more orders for Painted Hankie Scarves.  I didn’t get to the postoffice today to send out the ones I sold over the weekend, (our driveway didn’t get plowed till late in the afternoon) but I do have three finished so that means I need to make six more.

I think I painted enough hankies for more than that today.  I’ll make as many as I can and if I have any still available,  I’ll put them in my Etsy Shop.

I’ve had some of these hankies for many, many years.  I love that I’ve created this new way to use them.
