I made this for the mom in the kids swap also. Above it is a work in progress. Below it all finished. Let me tell you, I am so glad I numbered all the peices for in case they got mixed up. Cause of course, the pieces got mixed up!
The person I made this for told me that she hung it up in her living room. I don't think there is a better compliment than that. I am pretty proud of the way this turned out.
