For a Man.....

To mark my brother-in law's retirement I made him a wallet full of little packets of seeds.Yes, he is a man of the soil and deeply into organic produce.
 Wallet is tied up with twine and a Tim H pen nib (because one of BIL's retirement projects is to do a writing course).
 Papers used are Prima Reflections and Bo Bunny Etcetera.  The labels were left over from a kit and the seed packet isn't rhurbarb:it is something called Swiss Chard.
 Each label is stamped with a quote (mainly Mr. T. Holtz...what would we we do without his stuff for those man projects?) and the pages of the wallet are sewn together.
I hope he liked it....it was great fun to choose the packets of seeds and make up the wallet.
