A Different Finish

As I mentioned yesterday I'm doing a lot of finishing work.  I'm getting ready for TDIPT Mercantile on the 15th and wanted to stitch my new design "BE YE MERRY with a different finish.  So here it is.  I hand stitched the sampler on to an Army Green wool bag.  

This is super thick wool and so cozy. I've edged the top in the softest red brushed cotton homespun.  This just exudes the feeling of Christmas to me and I really like the way it came out.   I hope you do too.

It seems the consensus on St. Noel is to use the black and green wool
as pictured in my last post.  Thank you to all of you who left me your feedback.  I love getting input from my fellow bloggers and alway enjoy reading your comments.
I'll be working on St. Noel  this week to ready the finish for TDIPT, along with all the
other stitching I have planned : )
Oh how I love my stitching.
Have a wonderful day !
