So, what does a 100 year old get for a present?
Well, all the usual options are there- flowers, plants,. sweets, biscuits, and so on. but she has a house full of stuff, eats far less than once she did, and, let's face it, the world and his wife will give flowers and sweets...
A little thought is needed.
so this is what has been achieved, for an Irish Aunt, who is a fit and healthy 100 years old!
Celtic lettering for the initials, to ensure it is very personal and then the Celtic style interweaving for a border, in colours I thought she liked. Do not look too hard, there are some errors there, but by the time I realised, I was not unpicking all the way back to that first corner!
a more subtle Celtic design on the reverse
and bias tape made from linen for the interweaving.
Happy birthday Haunt! Love you.
