I love it - do you?

I want to thank everyone for the sweet comments and for taking the time to answer me.  I received a few emails regarding this photo and wanted to mention again about Sampler and Antique Needlework Quarterly's similar bag on the cover.  This isn't it!  That bag is a large sampler that is folded in half, which I chose not to do.  I couldn't see stitching it and having half of it covered, so I designed and stitched my own sack with leather drawstrings.  I will offer it as my first chart, but I designed and stitched it so quickly that I am not prepared for packaging as yet.
