Embroidered hankie

I haven't done any embroidery for many years, so it was a fun little challenge to try making an embroidered hankie for my sister-in-law to give to her friend for her wedding. I've blurred the writing to protect her personal details.
I was given the married name and date to embroider, and it was to be done in blue, but other than that I could come up with my own ideas. I added flowers in blue, with yellow centres, and some green leaves and blue berries.
I drew the writing on before I embroidered it, but I did the flowers completely by eye.

And here is is alongside one of my earliest pieces of embroidery, that I did when I was young, a lavender bag.
