Stitchery done, now for the bag

There have been some wonderful bags appearing here recently.  This weekend is going to be full of lots of stitching and sewing and one of the things I want to accomplish is to finish my February Red Home bag.... there are only six more days till the deadline anyway, so it's time I got going!  Here is my stitchery completed, with a couple of changes in the trees and flowers.  This was a really fun stitch and came together a lot quicker than I thought it would.

Happy stitching everyone, I hope you have a lovely weekend stitching too.......
