    Default Birthday/Christmas Gift

    My grand daughter's birthday presented a small problem, what does one give to a newly minted 13 year old girl who, it seems to me at least, already has everything ? Her tastes change daily for everything, is glued to electronica....
    Took a chance and made this automaton.

    Wish all a safe and happy holiday,

    Regards,
    Gus

    We’re safe in Faulco thank you Gus,
    but the smoke has been as thick as fog on and off over the past few weeks.
    1000000 acres of bush has been burnt out so far.
    Need more do gooders on the front lines of the bushfires volunteering to help save the bush, the animals and most of all property & people.
    Cheers Peter

    That is brilliant!
    It would have been a lot of fun making it, and even better fun watching the recipients face when she used it for the first time.
