Book Cover for Roger

At the beginning of June my lovely Roger was 60. He is an unassuming man who doesn't like surprises and gets embarrassed at gifts - weird I know but I love him!

Laura and Toby surprised and embarrassed him by turning up unannounced ( we last saw Laura in January and Toby before Christmas, so it was a surprise) and armed with gifts.
We had a lovely weekend and once over the shock Roger enjoyed it too.

The thing is, what to get the man who says he doesn't want anything?
Well he collects and reads a lot of vintage books. He had said that he particularly liked one of my Africa pieces so , voila! I made a book cover to protect the book or books he is reading.

Yes he was surprised and embarrassed - again - but he is over it now and is thrilled with his pressie.
I just love that man ;0)
