One More Ornament.
Today I completed an ornament I"d offered to do, when a fellow stitcher requested an ornament from Australia or New Zealand. As an Australian, resident in New Zealand, I guessed I could fulfill that request, either way.. I had planned to stitch an Australian icon, a flowering native known as a Christmas Bell, with perhaps some Christmas Bush flowers, also an iconic Australian, Christmas flowering, native. With such short time I was unable to find such a chart. I thought perhaps a New Zealand Pohutakawa, such a beautiful blossoming native tree would be ideal. Likewise, I was unable to find a ready made design. I'll have to design my own examples for next year. This is the ornament I stitched, which is happily for me, now on it's way to Italy..
The second photo shows a very special Australian treat included in the parcel.
