Christmas Ornament for Joan

I just noticed that Joan has already received the Christmas Ornament I sent to her for the private Christmas Ornament Swap. I finished this ornament for her about 20 minutes before our power failed on Thursday. The photo was taken on Friday morning, in the early hours of our blackout. As you can see, it does not appear as if we had an ice storm, although the trees in my yard are a little glisteny wet. Mike and I had to drive around to find a post office and food on Friday. We found a PO at the Massachusetts border... and food actually in Massachusetts... yet despite our problems here in NH, this ornament made it to Minnesota awfully quickly!

Now, off to finish a gift that is delayed from missing sooo much stitching time this weekend!

I love the little white snowflakes that surround the tree, but those little birdies are my favorite! Good job on the finishing! Keep warm!
