Most people are looking forward but this is about looking way back...well 1996
I made this homemade diary in 1996 for H, came across it last week in his box of treasures. I embroidered the front with a Celtic cross as we are really interested and fond of Celtic images. I did my thesis at uni on the Book of Kells.
I even typeset the pages, handsewed the entire book.
Unfortunately it was never used, hopefully he thought it was to nice to use... thats what I have decided.
H has a significant birthday as do I this year the fun will start again. I love being the youngest in the next decade.
H wants family and friends to make gifts for him to mark the event, and as he actually celebrates his birthday for the first time in four years I am going to oblige. I did give him a homemade gift 4 years ago with the safe arrival of daughter E in January!
RoseRed is going to help me with a special project for H this year in the form of helping me follow a pattern (can't read patterns at all), buy the correct stuff and be encouraged to complete it.
