Mrs Wilsons Knitting Circle

Today the lecture was about the silk thread embroidered post cards that were made during the war.  These postcards were either mailed or taken home.  They look like hankies cut and glued on post cards with the back available for a note to send home.  They are beautiful and so delicate in intricate.  I don't think I could do this kind of work.  Th colors of the different countries that were our allies are used in the decorations. There are several butterflies and they have the different flag colors in their design.
