RESCUE of something pretty and precious

I rescued an old beautiful piece of embroidery and gave it new life - that feels really good! :-)

The embroidery was too wide for a pouch, so I cut off a small piece on the right side, took out some stitches, and voila, it was just enough for a little pocket on the back.

You’re so ingenious, Yael, that you gave the new life to the lovely old embroidery (which I really like) in such a wonderful way.

Hej Yael,
der letzte Kommentar ging mal wieder verloren. Aber das ist nicht schlimm. Auf jeden Fall möchte ich Dir sagen, wie gut mir diese aufwändige Stickerei gefällt und, dass es eine wunderbare Idee ist solche Arbeiten so erneut zu verwenden. Handarbeit ist auch ein Stück Lebenszeit eines Menschen.

mit lieben Grüßen
