Remembering Alaska

Whenever on holiday we always want something to remind us of the great time we had.  Other than a few T-shirts I did not purchase much in Alaska.  At our ports of call there were tons of jewelery stores, many made in China souveniers, and very expensive local artwork.  In Skaguay we visited with the Rushin' Tailor, as she stocks the patterns from our Inuit series.  Although she is primarily a quilt shop, she did have some very nice cross stitch kits.  I only purchased some arctic motifed quilt fabrics, as the cross stitch kits she carried we also carry at Gitta's. Once home I still wanted a stitched piece to remember our holiday.  The chart below I charted this past week from one of the  many photos we took during our 2 weeks in Alaska.
This is a native symbol for the Orca, often seen in native artwork.
