You know, it is amazing that when you cross from Canada into the US the difference in the terrain is amazing. Canada looks green, productive and well kept; the US looks brown, fallow and mis-handled. Wonder how the weather knows where the border is?
I realized that I do not have everything I need for the other needlepoint project I brought (what WAS I thinking) so I am just going to do the portions that I can with what I have. I put in an order at Nordic Needle that should be waiting for me when I get back home. Too bad we are not going to Fargo, ND while we are up here!
The project is Inside the Box by Freda's Fancy Stitches. It is only 10x10 and should not take too long.
I promised to post my hauls from the two shops I have visited so far during this trip, so I will do that. I ordered all the threads for these projects as well.
Jeanette Douglas is a resident of Calgary Canada so I picked up her latest design (on the far right) that I plan to do for my wonderful Cousin. I discovered as I was reviewing the information that it was specifically designed to honor Canada's 150 year celebration in 2017. How perfect is that?!
Not sure what the rest of the trip will hold so I will keep you informed as we go along.
Thanks for visiting and thanks for all the wonderful emails and comments.
