Oh Christmas Tree.....

I do love all the different Christmas Trees I have received in swaps.... and I hope nobody is offended by my showcasing this one....

I have been blown away by this one from Larissa.  It is very pretty but I am also very touched to see the loving work she has done ...

Larissa knows I am just learning needleturn (we are bloggy friends) so she designed this lovely block....

each section of the tree is sewn separately and the 'ornaments' hand stitched with embroidery....


even the back is worth showing you......


... and look at the lovely card that came with it... giving a description of the work...
(I should have taken a picture of the front... a lovely native flowering bush)


I'm sure you will agree this is a very special block to receive
thanks Larissa
