I remembered the book cover project which was perfect for concealing what she wanted to hide.
We picked out some fabric and used a contrasting brown linen scrap for the lining. A ribbon saved from a gift from my sisters travels to Italy. Gusto: Vigorous enjoyment. Perfect.
There are several other projects in the book I would love to make.
A new apron may be in order. I'm thinking brown linen would be nice.
And maybe a new set of summertime coasters.
