Last spring, during my annual pilgrimage back to my homeland, I happened to see the cutest baby mobile hanging in the window of Pottery Barn Kids. I quickly snapped a picture.
My first thought was that I wasn't sure if this was maybe one of those window decorations that the store uses or if it was an actual mobile I could purchase. My second thought was that I could probably just make one. Ideas began brewing.
In the next few months I would a pattern, some yarn, got some ideas for how to make a coral and boom!
This was finished in August but I just managed to get it up over the holiday with the help of my dad. My parents are pretty used to my crafting antics. My dad says when I was little I would try to put all sorts of weird things together using Scotch tape. So I doubt he was surprised when I called him asking, "do you think I could make a round coral out of balsa wood?" Anyway, you can, and he hung it up with a simple screw hook.
I don't know if Daniel is terribly taken with it. He does look at it but I was hoping for a more enthusiastic reaction than drooling.
