Wall hanging


Miss M was at vacation care last week (a school-aged kids care programme run during school holidays, so working parents can keep working!). While she was there, she made this awesome "asian wall hanging". Miss M carefully folded the fancy paper, and stuck the wooden bars on each end. She brought it home for me, and said she thought it would be good to paint Mini's name on it, in Chinese characters! So, I've given it a crack. I printed her name off the computer, then cut out the lettering, to make a stencil, then painted it on. My stencilling wasn't perfect, some of the paint squeezed underneath, and made it a bit "blobby"! I also, painted her name in English, along the bottom. I love it. Miss M is so clever!

So... if you can read Chinese, please email me (see complete profile, on sidebar, to email), with the translation... coz I kind of made it up - so I hope it reads her name!!!
