My partner in the Christmas Stocking Swap had this X stitch pattern pinned and I knew I had to make it. I decided to do it in gold rather than the white it was originally done in because it is so much more fitting to the quote. I also decided it would be rather fitting to put it on a journal so I did.

I haven't heard from her since before she received so I hope she loves it.
