Oh my, my!

It started as a dream, later it went on my Bucket List, and now it's in the planning... my trip across Canada.

For a better view zoom out (click on the "-" on the map)

About 17,000 km (10,625 miles) round trip. If all goes well I'm starting my adventure in September. I would love to do it in the summer but, unfortunately, that is a very busy season in our office. I am so excited! I hope I can have a cup of coffee with a few stitching friends on the way, for sure I'm meeting one in New Brunswick!

So long my friends,

Secret Stitching Sweetheart

Look what I found in my inbox today:

Thank you for the lovely heart! It's beautifully done! Jo had an awesome exchange idea, now I have to find out who got mine!

I have 2 finishes!!! Can you believe it? The first one is my ruler. I had one before but never stitched the inside part. And I'd lost that ruler somewhere during my trip to Alberta. So I bought another one, I designed the pattern and here it is:

I stitched on the vinyl provided with the ruler. I tried it and I didn't like it. My next insert will be stitched on linen, that's for sure!

My second finish is Cottage of the Month - January.

I still have to do something with it, but as of now - I have no idea what. I will do all 12 of them and I thought it would look nice as a quilt or a wall hanging. I also though that I could finish them as cubes... 

I will leave you with a picture of sunrise in Yukon. Last weekend I captured it's lovely colors

Have an awesome Valentine's Day!
