  1. Congratulations on your 1500th post! I think they're both splendid, but I like fruit fizz one best. I think it would be just the thing to put some pot pourri in.

  2. hmmmm....what a difficult question....they're *both* my favorite! First time I looked at the sachets, the blue hankie one was my time the one with pink flowers was my favorite....and now I like them both 'equally.' They're both beautiful. As far as how I would use it, I'm not quite sure about that yet, either. It might sit on the table in my tatting corner so I could see it every time I looked in that direction. ;-)

  3. I really like the fruit fizz one. and I would hang this off my china cabinet. so that I could look at it while I tat.

  4. I like the pink/purple one, but have a friend who loves blue and would get a lot of use out of this. Put me down for the blue! Gorgeous!

  5. I love them both, but especially the colorful one. Thanks for the link on how to wrap them. They would make excellent gifts for little girls and older ones. I would put a gift in each pocket. One would have chocolate, of course, a old antiques broach in another, and something personal in the others. Thanks for all of the wonderful ideas!! Love seeing your tatting, you are a real inspiration!!

  6. Wow, congratulations on the many posts---wonderful ones, too, IMO!! Love the cultural and food posts as much as the tatting ones. I think I like the purple one the most and would fill it with lavender and place it where I could see it every day!

  7. Both are beautiful and my favorite is the purple hanky with Fruit Fizz. I'd use it in my bedroom or front room - but not in a dresser hiding. It'd be set out so we can enjoy the beauty. Thank you for the opportunity. Karen in OR

  8. Congratulations of your post 1,500th post.
    Lovely hanky sachets, the blue one is my favourite, how would I use it, I don't know but I would definitely keep it safe and admire your beautiful handiwork.

  9. They are both beautiful. I suppose I would choose the blue one if I were lucky enough to win one.

  10. What a lovely idea! They are both very pretty and would make a great addition to any drawer..... though, then they would be hidden away! I would prefer to have it on top of the dresser or shelf.... out where it could be seen :) I will have to bookmark the directions for later when I get some hankies edged, I'm thinking they would make lovely gifts as well!

  11. It is so hard to choose they are both lovely and I would consider myself lucky to receive either. Beautiful work. Love these.

  12. Ooo - pick me! I'd love to have the blue one to scent my guest room, which is a soothing pale blue.

  13. I love the blue hankie. The colors blend so beautifully. I think it is so pretty the way they are that I would probably just leave it the way it is :)

  14. Congrats on so many posts - I do enjoy reading them and seeing all your very beautiful tatted projects plus all the other interesting things you share with us.

    The Internet is a wonderful tool that brings the world together. Wouldn't it be great if the world leaders followed suit!

    i love the Blue Caribbean colors, but both are beautiful.

  15. Yes! I would love to win!! I would favor the blue handkerchief. How I would use it???? Well, probably it would go someplace to decorate. A table or box. The top of my piano. It would probably move around. It would also probably be oohed and ahhhed over by friends. I might even gift it to a friend in need of some joy in their life.

    Thanks for offering and posting fabulous pictures and projects.

  16. Congratulations on your number of posts.
    I think the purple one is very pretty. I like the Fruit Fizz thread.
    I would put it in my drawer with some lavender scent.

  17. I love the blue one best! I would probably put it somewhere in my bedroom where it would go with the blue walls.

  18. Congratulations1 That is a BIG number of posts!

    What would I do? Admire it! I like the pink/orange one best.

  19. Each one is beautiful. My niece would love to have one. I enjoy your blog.
