    Applique wall hanging

    I made this wall hanging as a Christmas gift for a friend. My grand daughter talked me into entering it in the fair in August. Lo and behold, I got a blue ribbon and now I'd like to keep it but I think I'll give it to my mother for Christmas instead. Feeling just a tiny bit guilty.

    Beautiful! Quite worthy of that Blue Ribbon! I believe we are free to change our minds as to who we'd like to have our gifts! Unless the recipient has been told it's theirs already there should be no guilt when we discover a better home for our efforts!

    Truly a gorgeous wall hanging and beautiful, beautiful workmanship.

    It's beautiful. Maybe you could make your mother something else?

    Congrats and well deserved ribbon.

    Giving it to your Mother will keep it in the family and you can still enjoy seeing it. Your GD has a good eye for lovely work and one day she may enjoy hanging it in her home. It would be a lovely memory for her as she recalled the blue ribbon you received from her encouragement for you to enter it in the show.

    Congrats on your blue ribbon. You deserve it. This is stunning! No wonder you have mixed feelings about letting it go. I just love it.

    Sweet wall hanging, well earned ribbon.
