New project, mother book 1

This is a new project. I have saved many things for this for a long time now. I'll make a "mother" book.  The first page I finished before the new year. This is my grandmother from fathers side. The page on the left is a photo as a young women, the page on the right was taken on the day that she was married for 40 years to my grandfather. This grandmother was very! good in crocheting! In the left corner  a piece of a doily which she made and the little circle also.
I loved my grandmother very much. It was a pity she died just a few months before our daughter was born. She looked só forward to become a great-grandmother.
 I have handwriting and photos of all my grandmothers, great grandmothers and great-great grandmothers unless one. It becomes an 'in between' project.
It will take a while, special now I have got the flu a week ago, no energy to do something!

Dear ATi!
What a wonderfull idea, to set a
memorial to the beloved persons!
The one's who are still living in
our heart. Who give us their knowledges, some parts of our kind.
Get well soon Dear Ati.

I am fascinated by my own family history and it is lovely to see other who are too. The beginnings of your book are beautiful. I hope you soon feel much better.

Wat een geweldig idee, en dat je nog zoveel foto's van je oma's hebt. Hoop dat je de griep gauw helemaal de baas bent.
Fijn weekend Tiny

Wat een bijzonder project waar je nu mee bezig bent! Een mooi onderwerp om uit te werken. Ik kan me voorstellen dat daar al heel wat werk aan is vooraf gegaan?
Maar vervelend van de griep. Hopelijk komt je energie weer snel terug!Beterschap!

Ati I do you are recovering OK from the flue - nasty! These pages are just so so special - the older we get the more we realize just how special. You are really doing the pictures justice. Keep it going - it is beautiful!
