Back Home

Thanks you Cindy! I got to do some STASH shopping in Edmonton :) Craft Connection is such a wonderful store. Lots of goodies and things to admire. I probably should have taken a picture but I was so busy exploring everything that I forgot....

I took a couple WIP's for the trip but my old Permin Sampler prooved to be the easiest to stitch on in the truck. The 28ct linen and the stitching with 1 thread of HF thread made it really easy.

I had it listed in my post of stitching goals for 2011 but as so many things in there I never put any stitches in it. So this is where I picked up stitching:

 
And here is how it looks now. This will definitely be my travel WIP and so finally get a chance to be finished some day....just wish we would travel more. LOL

 
And a close up of the area I was stitching on:
 
 
 
I wrote my 2nd BCIT exam just after work on my last day of work and got the good news while being on vacation....I passed YAY!!! Now I have to apply to write the provincial exams. I hope to do them both on one day. If I get really lucky I could pass them at once. Which would save me at least 3 months. But that is quite optimistic. So I better get back to studying now that I am back home.

Gorgeous sampler Bine! I love the colour! Oooh, too bad I didn't know about that craft store in Edmonton! I was just there, only for a short time, but could have made my parents drive me there!

Wow, der Sampler wird ja der Hammer. Super schön.
Genau wie Deine anderen Stickereien. Ich bin immer wieder begeistert, was es für tolle Blog`s gibt.
Bei Dir bin ich jetzt die neuste Leserin.
