    Skates for Wall Hanging gift

    I made this wall hanging for hubby's cousin who was a figure skater when she was young. She's now in the hospital recovering from cancer surgery so I'm hoping she'll enjoy receiving this when she goes home. I hope everyone's projects are going well!

    I think she will really enjoy having such a thoughtful gift. That was so sweet of you.

    I love the metal accents you used for the laces.

    It's beautiful and so well done. She should love it and reflect back on the happy memories of when she skated.

    stunning, very pretty, I'm sure she'll love, it's beautiful
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
