I changed my template because of difficulties with the size of my photos.
We have an issue with our Macbook Air - I use it normally to resize my
photos - but now I can't. So this was the solution. We even don't know if
it can be repaired - we have to wait - till our expert son solves the problem.
I enrolled in a workshop with Karen Ruan - Stitching a Story - "work on your own*
I can at any time ask her questions and the answers are coming so fast - so the enthusiasm
is not interrupted. Here you can see more:
Now on the hunt of nice, really nice story books -
I found two charming small books with very beautiful illustrations.
I decided to start with RAPUNZEL
It is a story first published by the Brothers Grimm and here related and illustrated
by the young Austrian author Eleni Livanios
RAPUNZEL@ellermann by Dressler Verlag GmbH, Hamburg
If you don't know what is Rapunzel - it is this salad - Valerianella is its official Latin name
I use the first of those names - Ackersalat
See how many names exist only in Germanys different countries and
in German speaking countries:
Other names are Feldsalat, Nüssli, Weitere Bezeichnungen hierfür sind:
Ackersalat (in Schwaben),
Rawunze (Mittelhessen) und Rawinzchen (Schlotheim, Thüringen),
Döchderle, Sonnenwirbel bzw. Sunnewirbeli, Sonnewirbele (Baden),
Wingertsalat (Pfalz), Schmalzkraut (Hessisches Ried). (Wikipedia)
and overpainted the red label which was printed on the booklet.
My version of a plant of Valerianella - Ackersalat - salad from the acre.
The curtain was certainly a bit plain - that's why I added the
wonderfully tatted lace-band - I assume my grandmother did it.
Such things were safely stored in my mother's stashes and now
in mine - hopefully those treasures will be passed on and on....
She is watching the young future father who he steals the salad from her garden. -
I am not sure yet how to insert this element between the pages.
We will see.
Just stay tuned......
