Morning, as I said in my last post I've been "stitching" a book
"She has a story to tell"
So let's begin,
That's me as a baby, aw wasn't I cute? There's an old silver 3d for luck tucked into a spray of blue flowers, a little knitted brooch and a piece cut from an old deed.
some snippets of fabric, buttons and old press studs, a picture of my lovely mam on the day of her wedding, and a beautiful treasured brooch my sister Julie (who was eight) gave to me when I become a "mother"
I love old keys so I stitched that on first and then I found a tiny lock charm, a lovely old shirt button and an envelope addressed to my granda dated 1943, such lovely hand writing.
I bought a bumper load of these pre paid envelopes a few years ago and I knew one day they'd come in handy for something.
Just a wooly scarf, a couple of photos, a few bit's and bobs, my name and the date inside but one day a family heirloom perhaps? I'd like to think so.
I'll put this as my August's monthly make
along with my "reindeer" scarf.
Have you been sewing or stitching?
Love Lucey xx
