New look diary

With so much rain falling yesterday it was a good day to stay in the sewing room.  My project for the day – to make a cover for my diary.  My friend and I have the same diary and on Monday we kept going to pick up each other’s diary.  So now mine looks different, and that problem is solved.

The piece of lace down the front was my Mum’s.  I can remember her using this lace when I was quite young.  The piece I had left was just long enough to fit down the length of the diary.

I put a pocket inside the back cover to hold a small notebook and pen.

Marilyn, nice job on the diary cover and the pocket is a good idea. Can a pen live in there as well? I can never find mine VBG
