From my Sister


I wanted to share this gift I got from my sister for Christmas. She really surprised me. This was commissioned by her and made by a fantastic silhouette artist on Etsy, Carolin. This lady visited my blog and then based the silhouette on what she found there....my quilting, i love birds(and if i was to have a pet bird i would want it to be a crow, simply because they amuse me, and they are smart...my sister told her that hence the crow), my sewing machine and best of all my kids. She searched my blog for good side views of both kids and added them to the piece. It could not be more perfect. I can not wait to get it on the wall. Thanks sister!!!
