Tenuous Shoe Horn Blog Party: My Summer Holiday EDIT with photo
I almost forgot to shoe horn in my Summer Holiday stitching for Jo's blog party!
As I was looking through photos I realized I don't tend to stitch many summer or even spring designs. It's all fall and winter. But I did stitch this one back in 2012 when I was going through a rough patch:
It's from a Stoney Creek pattern called At The Fair I think. I submitted it to a local fair and got 2nd. I thought that was good because I was up against this enormous design of a loon. It must have taken years to finish!
I have fond memories of this one for learning the pinhead stitch and my first experience with Rainbow Gallery blending filament in the flags of the Ferris Wheel.
And in case you're wondering, no, I don't mind backstitch. :)
Thanks Jo for a fun reason to share this one!
EDIT to add this photo of stopping at the Big Apple in Ontario to add to Bea's photos of giant sculptures in Canada
