Okay I started off finishing this as an ornament but then I thought it would look great as a flange pillow. That got me thinking even more and finally I decided on a small bag. It is the perfect size to hold Christmas cards!

Tonight looks like it should be a pretty quiet evening around here so I am going to work on Woodland Fairie. If all goes well, I should have some visible progress since I will be working on the filling in the huge hole.

I want to thank everyone for their wonderful comments on the needleroll. I admit that I have been considering this finished piece for the Cross Stitch Lottery. I really like how it turned out and if I won the lottery I would enjoy the needleroll. So now the debate goes on...do I keep it for myself or do I use it for the Lottery? Good thing I have time to decide! LOL...look how many times I changed my mind on the bag!
