Good morning my blog friends. Today being the first Sunday in the month means it's story telling time. This is hosted by the lovely Sian and her suggestion for this year is Pick your Precious.
How did Sian know? That I had already started an album In July 2009 My Little Treasures.
This is what I wrote on the inside cover, the blurb if you like.
As I look around my bungalow I realise I have so many things I love, none of them of much monetary value, but they are all precious to me for one reason or other. So I decided to make a little album of layouts of them all. I want to record where they came from and why they mean a lot to me.
Each item will have a page of its own, decorated as befits anything that I love. A kind of catalogue of treasures belonging to a scrapbooker.
The first page is about probably my most treasured possession as it is something that John made. A very delicate cross stitch picture done on fine linen with just a single thread. Each stitch tenderly placed.
John would sit for hours stitching away, it was his way of relaxing, and although he did many many lovely pictures this is by far my favourite. The actual embroidery measures 14" x 17" mounted and framed it measures 21" x 23" and is hung in my hallway.
This is my Pick of the Precious for this month, why not head over to Sian place High in the sky to see what everyone else has picked.
