W.I.P. #1 : done !!!

This morning I went upstairs in Tobia's bedroom with the sunburst circles (see this post here) and I asked him, please, to line them up the way he liked most...





Then, I cut 10 stripes (each 10 cm long, approx.) from a navy-blue&white gingham ribbon reel




So, I knotted each stripe to a circle on a long yarn chain ( I didn't measure the gap between each circle)




After the knotting moment, I used my "zig zag" scissors to stop all the fraying from the stripes





Tobia hammered (omg!!!) a couple of nails in the wall, just above his bed header (under the constant supervision of both mum and dad !!!)...


After checking all the fingers were safe and sound, we decided to put the bunting in place









...Hope the boy is as happy as I am!!!! ;oD


See you soon, xxxx

P.S. : Link your Stuff is waiting for me!!! You, too!!! Thanks!!!
