Another Christmas Gift in the Works!

I did this cross stitch years ago.  It was, I believe, from a pattern in Cross Stitch and Country Crafts magazine and I couldn't resist it - I love pansies and the verse is so wonderful.  It has had several lives over the years - it was a box lid and then it was framed and I think it fell off the wall and the frame broke because it has been back in the stash waiting for me to think of something else to do with it.
They are having a challenge over on Stitchmap Yahoo group where the participants are making a Travel Bag for your stitching along with accessories.
So, I am happy to have finished the first of the projects, the travel bag, and to have this favourite piece of embroidery reincarnated again!  Now on to the other pieces in the set and I'll have my gift exchange at Guild next Christmas taken care of!

Way to go Kerry. I love the pansy x-stitch. And the recipient will be very lucky.
