My wonderful friend Terry LOVES horses. She even had an opportunity to spend a week in France with daily horseback riding sessions, so when I spotted a vintage hankie appliqued with a beautiful horse head I immediately snatched it up with her in mind. At first I intended to just give her the hankie, but hankies tend to get placed in a drawer and are seldom displayed (I know this from personal experience, of course!), so I tried to think of something else. After the Creative Wings prize ribbon swap (see here and here) I knew just what I wanted to do. I found some nice blue ribbon and other bits of trim, and came up with something I thought she might be happy to display in her studio.
I'll have a swap to share soon, and more estate sale finds.
