    she's actually my cousin's daughter. she's graduating friday with a degree in nursing. thought this would be appropriate! i used the technique with the triangles on the back for the dowel rod. i love doing it this way!

    I love it and your niece will love it! You are sooo creative, it is just perfect for a nurse and the label on the back really makes it special. Will you be my aunt?

    Kudos to you, AND to your niece. If she enjoys nursing even a fraction as much as I do, she'll be happy. The wallhanging is a beauty.

    As a nurse myself, that a wonderful gift for a new nurse and the label will be so true as she starts her career. We need to encourage all those new nurses.
