PhotoHunt "Celebrate" and Crazy Challenge Day 9 Start

Its Friday!  PhotoHunt Day!  This week's theme is "Celebrate"


I know this picture is a little out of season... but I didn't feel like digging through a lot of my pictures for today's post.  At the Chateau Laurier here in Ottawa they celebrate Christmas by decorating all of the public areas with Christmas trees that are sponsored by local businesses.  Each one decorated in its own unique theme.

Day 9's start on Thursday was also a Happy Dance!  That evening I was contemplating just giving up on the Crazy Challenge, I wasn't feeling a new start.  I popped into my craft room and started poking through my pile of ornament working copies.  I came across this little beauty!  It only stitched up in under three hours!

The trees are really pretty!

I LOVE your Peace ornament! It looks like the word Peace is over one, so if you stitched that up in just a few hours all I can say is WOW! Your fingers gotta be on fire!

Good luck with the rest of the challenge. You're doing great so far!
