These are hubby's father's day Presents.
The small newspaper one, Jo picked out, it was the Red Badge of Courage. We got a Hardcover copy for a $1.50! The diaper box, was his second present. I didn't use wrapping paper, because all I have is pink, and hubby is too functional to see the use in wrapping paper. I just use newspaper, because he would rather that then me spend money on buying wrapping paper for him.
(Although I do buy wrapping paper for other people.)
This is what came out of the diaper box. A blanket that is almost three years over due. I bought the material when we were dating, I was planning to make him a blanket. But I never had time, until now. I gave him the material for his first birthday we were married, and told him I was going to make it for him, but that yet still never happened, and so finally I finished it. He loved it, as you can tell by the smile on his face. He was so excited. He said the other day he was thinking he was hoping you were going to finish making it. So it was a great present.
So here is the deal with the blanket. I was going to make hubby a blanket because isn't that what girls who know how to sew do for their boyfriends? We'll I never had before, before hubby no boy was worthy of any effort on my part. Somehow my husband past the test, so I was going to make my husband a blanket. That way he could think of me as he was falling asleep or something I don't know that was the plan. But I was always too busy either working, going to school, planning a wedding, being pregnant or being a mom, to finish it until now. Doesn't quite have the desired effect as it was suppose to be. my husband doesn't need a blanket to think of me, he sleeps next to me at night. But he does love blankets. When it isn't blazing hot outside, he always wants to be wrapped up in a blanket, so although he is no longer my boyfriend. Apparently even a husband needs a blanket. On the back side I wrote a secret message, he hasn't found it yet.In tiny embroidery it says, LEH heart BRH
