From Sea to Shining Sea FINISHED!!

From Sea to Shining Sea by Little House Needleworks
threads: Belle Soie silks
fabric: 40ct Lakeside Linen Winter Sky
started: 2009-02-10

Derek is pretty confident that he passed his red seal exam in Toronto. He flew back on thursday afternoon and we are so happy to have our little family complete again. Now he is busy looking for a Harley...because I promised him that he will get his Harley after accomplishing the goal to achieve his red seal. :)
He was so happy to be back. Toronto is a little bit too big for us countrynuts. LOL

But even in the middle of a big city you can always find some beautiful spots....

Sunday we spent a nice afternoon

at the Winnipeg Assiniboine Park Zoo before dropping Derek off at the airport hotel.

While walking through the zoo Lisa talked the whole time about the little train with the steam engine we saw in the park. So we went for a train ride later and guess who was a little bit scared sitting in the noisy little train:

Still not finished with FStSS. I got the silks for my next project yesterday that'll speed me up, I guess :)

The week was dedicated

to planning Derek's trip to Toronto. He has to go there to take a test for his Canadian red seal as a Journeyman Millwright. Tomorrow we will bring Derek to Winnipeg and spend a nice day there and while Lisa and I will be heading home Derek will fly to Toronto. We can pick him up at the airport on Thursday again.... So please cross your fingers for him to pass the test.

I just put a few stitches in From Sea to Shining Sea but still....I am getting there LOL Hopefully a finish tomorrow evening or on Monday.
