My Christmas is not quite over!

I still have a couple of Christmas exchanges to be completed. I'm still working on a cross stitched card for Annie B, which is from a book called "Two Hour Cross Stitch" - ha ha...this one has taken me nearly 3 weeks so far, and the backstitching alone took two hours! Annie, I have nearly finished, and it should be in the mail before next year (grin).
I have one more ornie to come from Jan in England, for our Stitchin Fingers ornie round robin. I know that Joy has received my ornie, but I've yet to hear from the other ladies if theirs has arrived. Last week I received this stunning fabric postcard from Liz in Kansas. She has used a kind of braid to make the Xmas tree shape, and embellished it with beads, stitching and a little plastic 'NOEL'. Gorgeous!

Hope your holiday was merry, Gina. I'll be looking forward to the card!

And Liz's postcard is so special. She always does such beautiful work.
