tresures of the past


 I am making a journal called: Treasures of the past. I have inherited so many needlework treasures, just bits and pieces. Some unfinished.
I also got beautiful bits and pieces from my friend Eva K.
When I keep it all in a box, what will happen to those bits and pieces when I am gone?
That's why decided to make a journal to keep it all together.
I make single pages and double pages and try to arrange it free.
Just a bit shabby chic style like my other journals.
To be continued.....

Een erg goed idee Ati! Het zou jammer zijn,als die die mooie borduursels en herinneringen straks zomaar verdwijnen.
Het wordt nu weer een prachtig geheel!

Dear Ati!
What a surprise! Can't believe it.
The bits and pieces are starting a new life! But why are you thinking now on days when you are gone? I know we all are guests on this world. But stay well Ati and share your crafts with us in future. I understand what you mean, I had the same thoughts years ago (Mum..)
Lots of hugs, your fan and friend Eva from Austria

Wonderful idea, Ati. Are you including a written account of the pieces' known history?
It's lovely. I look forward to seeing more.

This is so so very beautiful Ati. What a wonderful idea to keep all these little treasures in the one place. I just love it and the colours too! It will be a very special book that you can hand down.
Love and hugs,

Oooooh Ati! What a marvelous journal--those precious bits and pieces took somebody a long time to make. You are honoring them well! Also loved the fabric pages. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the TAST--I can only watch, too many projects piled up!
best, nadia
