At Last ...!


Well this has taken quite a while to finish (see post further down !)but I got there in the end thanks to Laura who left such a helpful comment after I appealed for help.
It was the suggestion of a silver charm that did it ....suddenly I knew what I wanted to do......so here it is... all silver embossed...wire beaded... and sporting some fibres and ribbons.....and of course the silver "charm" ....I knew the silver cross would be just right.... especially with the sentiments in the book.
"So"....Laura wanted to know, " what does Jacob think of you turning his book into a girlie one"....well he's fine...he wants it for his mum (my daughter Nichola) as a present and I am delighted, because Jacob's little wooden book would have been thrown away and now, instead, its a keepsake that means something to three generations.

Oh, Ruby, it's so beautiful, especially since it's a prized treasure that started with your grandson!
Warmly, Laura
