Hankies As a Gift

A few years ago a close relative of mine passed away and I inherited her lovely collection of hankies (all brand new). Many are crocheted or have lace on them as well as embroidery. You don't see young people using cloth hankies much. What I decided to do with them is when I visit some one who is elderly and they are either in the hospital, nursing home or ill at home, I put a hankie in a card and present them with this. They really appreciate it.

How generous you are to share your hankies with those who will appreciate them! If you decide to keep one, some, they make pretty covers for dainty pillows.
