Pictures of the latest Hankie

During dinner tonight I actually took pictures of several of the courses. We've been wanting to do this for a while now and we just never manage to do it during a feast. Go figure.

Since I was downloading them I also finally got the pictures of Rowan's Hankie. So here they are. Click on the picture got get more. :)

Edited to say: BTW, for an extreme close up of any of the pictures, go into flickr, pick the picture you want to look at. RIGHT above the picture is a menu bar saying Add Note, Send to Group, etc. Select "All Sizes" and click on "Original". This gets you the whole picture at the resolution that frederich used to take the picture.

Isn't it though? I'm really happy with what flt did with making the beads and even more so in what thehonorablellt did in incorporating the beads into the lace. Still have no clue how she did it, but she didn't have to cut the lace. She sewed it in using silk thread and superglued the heck out of all the knots.

Most of all I'm happy at how my scheming to get flt to stay for Court at the event resulted in a hankie that is personalized for bronxbaroness who is a fan of flt's beads.

This is one of the most amazing hankies I have *ever* seen given to a Queen and I feel extremely honored that you all took such time and care to make it so special for me. It is a treasure! Thank you, thank you, thank you all!

I'm very happy that you like the hankie. It was truly a combined effort. We were trying to think of a way to make the hankie special for you when I remembered how much you like FL's beads. She was happy to provide some and Tirzah came up with the way to attach the beads. I was impressed at how she managed to make it look like the beads were part of the lace.

It's always nice to hear that our work has made someone happy and the hankie is valued.
