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.
