Recently my sister in law had a significant birthday.
We don't normally do presents, but a significant birthday is after all a significant birthday.
After some head scratching and much pondering the idea of embroidering the initials of her family came to me.
Which then lead to the pondering upon letters and words.
Which lead me to a lovely old pocket dictionary which had once belonged to my Granddad, that my Dad gave to me when I was about 8.
Its old and falling apart and has been used on similar projects in the past, so I felt no angst at tearing out some of the pages.
It was a lot of fun to do and every one was happy with the results.
I suspect I may feel the need to make more of these.
Though I must apologise for the dinginess of the photos. I took them on the only non sunny day of the Easter holidays.
Love Nora xxxx
