I am really excited to show you this art piece I have made. It is part of my Design Team application for The Robin's Nest. Click here to view their website. Click here to view their blog.
I have created a wall plaque to give to my Mum. I'm giving my Mum a sewing machine for Christmas. Now, she happens to have her own craft room, lucky lady. I know that she will love this special plaque I have made for her to hang in there. I have decorated it and made a tag for it and will hand it over with her gift wrapped sewing machine. She'll be blown away.
