I'm so glad some of you enjoyed the canoes and the activities that went with the journey. I read in the paper that even the huge ferries between Seattle and Bainbridge Island altered their routes a bit so the canoes didn't have to deal with such a big wake. They have to travel the entire length of Puget Sound to reach their final destination at the South end. The wonderful design on the canoes reminded me of a cross stitch I did many years ago. We didn't even live here at the time. I bought the kit in a small knitting shop in a delightful little town north of Seattle called La Connor. I think this represents an orca. It is fairly small so all of you wonderful finishers have inspired me to make it into an ornament. It's just been laying in the chest where I keep my linen for probably about 17 years!! That's way too long, this needs to become an ornament!! The other cross stitch picture show all the finished houses of Salem Village. What do you think I should do with this when it is done? It's about 6x6. I have two rows of border and it's finished! I also added a few pretty garden pictures! Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope it is a good week for all of you!
This blue isn't quite right, but the bushes are just full of these beautiful blue flowers.
