This is a story not really connected with stitchery but of art work and journals that were found. It has captured my imagination as to what can be found in junk, charity shops or indeed at a vintage shop or fair.
What would it be like to find something so amazing! When I am pushing up daisies will any of my journals be treasured or end up in land fill....
I would love to find something like this with water colour art and notes, I am on constant look out for stitchery sample books and journals and was lucky enough, as you know, to find one before Christmas on Ebay of all places.
This is what I found out about the journals from the Internet and there is lots more to google if you wish to have a further information. So here is a little bit about it with pictures and it is slightly Da Vinci Code as well ... fascinating!
Charles Dellschau was only known as the local grouchy butcher. His works laid undiscovered and were found just outside of Texas in a heap outside a house.
