Hi everyone

I made this for my little girls room.  I never got to do the whole decorate the nursery thing as we bought the house after she was born.  So her room is a bit bland but I've been doing a bit to cheer it up recently.

I made this.  I still need to find a frame for it 'cause none of the ones I have fit properly.



detail



I like it a lot I think the colours work really nicely together and it's nice and warm.  And for once I designed a pattern that wasn't too complicated and time intensive.  So it only took me about a week to finish it (with aforementioned wee girl helping way too much!)

Thanks for looking!

That's a great thing to teach a kid, and beautiful gift.  I'm sure she will treasure it all her life.

I would have loved something like this in my room when I was little - I had to figure it out on my own.  Wink

Great piece.  I like the simplicity and the colours!

I love the design and the sentiment. This will dress up your daughter's room and the message will stay with her.
