Hankie Edging

This hankie edging was all sewn up into a flounce of some sort. It may have been used as a little neck jabot. So the center was already cut out. Anyway the needlelace corners are done in an interesting way. A thin trimming lace has been wrapped with thread at intervals and crossed to give the joined wedding ring motif. The centers are then filled in with needlelace. It is another example of lace trim being combined to form an allover lace pattern.

Sorry the photo is off center. I am feeling a little rushed today.



The jasmine is in full bloom now.

  1. ooooooo…. all sorts of pretties!! I can’t wait for it to warm up so I can do some planting around my house. I have a couple spring flowers coming up that the previous owners must have put in.

  2. Wow, isn’t that a lovely bit of lace! Thanks for the close up!

    I’ll bet that jasmine smells delicious! 🙂

  3. What a pretty lace square! What would something like that be used for? So jealous of the jasmine. If ours had been blooming, the hail a couple days ago would have shredded them. 😦
