My husband's birthday and my best-friend's-husband's birthday fall on the very same day.
This year there was a challenge: keeping two secrets!
My friend commissioned a handmade jacket for her man and my children planned a surprise party for their father.
It was a wild week.
I was very quiet!
And working hard.

See here: my beloved, wearing Francisco's jacket.

The jacket is made of wool.
(I so badly wanted to wash and dry the wool hot to shrink and felt it up...will certainly do that for the next project!)
Oh, yes! That lining is made from hand dyed, screen printed cotton.

This jacket looks fabulous. Hopefully I will run into Frankie sometime on a cold day and see it in person. Nice work!
