Arbour Exchange

This beauty from Berit was waiting for me when I got home from my hols.
It's the replacement for the Arbour day exchange that went missing a few months ago but it's certianly been worth the wait. The only condition of this exchange was that the design had to have a tree in it and there it is in Santa's hand :)
Berit has done an outstanding job and both the stitching and finishing are perfect. My first ornament of the year is now hanging on the banana hook I bought to display a different ornie on in December and I don't care what anyone say's it's staying there for a while

That line across the back is the shadow from the washing line, guess who wasn't paying attention when she took the pic.

I do have holiday pics to share but some of them are on Mel's settings cause I was stupid and didn't take my camera with me so they will have to wait until she get's home at the weekend before I can post them but I do have some which I'll share.

Annnnd I finally got my butt into gear and rang the insurance bods about getting my puter fixed (it's only taken me about 6 weeks!!) and there is someone coming to collect it tomorrow so hopefully I'll be back up and running fairly soon.
