      Well I finally got off the path of procrastination and at the end of mass yesterday I approached an old dear that sits in the front pew on the left side of the church. About a month ago I saw her looking at her 'Common Prayer' book which was well used the binding was coming away from the book, during the week I went to the bookstore and to my surprise in she came and was asking assistance to find a cover for her book. Then I saw on Sunday after I had seen her in the shop and her book was still uncovered and she had repaired the binding with duct tape. So, I had the urge to help her out and make her a cover for her prayer book so, this Sunday after mass I went up to her and asked her if I could see her prayer book I wanted the size of it. She asked why I wanted to know it was just a Common Prayer book I replied that I wanted to make a cover for her book, with that she asked my name and told me that she was blind and could hardly see. She was quite emotional about me wanting to make her a book cover plus the combination of it being around her daughter's birthday who had passed away(I don't know any info on how long ago) but she had donated flowers for church in her memory.

      So now I am in the process of making thee cover and I'm going to embroider her first initial on it with a cross if I am able to do it. I do hope that it turns out well since I am self taught but I am sure this is what I am suppose to be doing, it feels right...
