Grandma's Mobile



My grandma is in a nursing home and I wanted to make her something. I thought I'd make her something pretty to look at, because pretty things usually make people happy. I figured I'd make a mobile because they're easy to hang and they look neat. I made this one using an embroidery hoop covered with ribbon. Then I used one of those fake flower leis and took it apart and strung the flowers on fishing line. I love how it turned out. The flowers float around on the smallest breeze. I think I'll be making myself one of these too.
