Early on, probably before I got engaged, I saw this lovely picture of a bride’s hands holding a delicate lace hankie. The excitement, anxiety, hope – it’s all there in her hands.
A few months into wedding planning, I was reviewing my wedding board on Pinterest (so thankful for this amazing concept!) and found that pinned photo.
I’m not a big crier, usually, but I have a feeling our wedding day may be an exception to this. So I set out to make myself a little hankie – out of some leftover muslin and a sweet little crocheted lace. And then I embroidered our initials and our wedding date. (I am not the best at embroidery). It turned out very sweet.
Last week, I found some lace that I just loved. Loved. And I had a bit of muslin left over from other projects – so I put them together and made another little hankie. I love it. Even the back made a neat little double seam. I’ll be carrying this one down the aisle.
Don’t worry – I have plans for the first little hankie.
And good news – the photographer of the original picture – she’ll be taking our wedding pictures. I didn’t realize it was her until a few weeks ago – I was looking through her website and stumbled upon the hankie picture. Sometimes, things work out in amazing ways. Sometimes may be more times than we even realize.
