Christmas ornament exchange

This year I participated in a private Christmas ornament exchange with two other stitcher from Finland and I would like to show you the beautiful ornaments I got.

First one is from Virpi
Besides the beautiful ornament the package included lots of other goodies. Virpi really spoiled me this year with this amazing Christmas gifts.

The other ornament is from Kaisa.
Kaisa knows that I love primitive designs and she really nailed it with the "I believe in Santa" ornament. The colors are quite bright in the picture but in real life they are beautifully aged.

Now, here are the two ornaments that I stitched.
Virpi mentioned that she likes trees, so I picked this sampler tree by Little House Needleworks. It is stitched 1 over 1 and finished it into a tree shape. 

Kaisa said she likes primitive designs just like me. So I picked one of my favorites from The Primitive Hare. Also stitched 1 over 1 and finished with red lace into a big bauble.

Of course I also included little extra goodies with both ornament, but I missed taking a picture of it.

I am just wondering how on earth did you finish my tree ornament? It`s so beautiful and the shape is unique.

Kaisa`s ornament is beautiful, too.

Hope you liked also the knitting yarn... I decided just at summer when you told me you like the colors that I will give that ball to you... Merry Christmas!
