Happy Canada Day

In celebration of Canada Day, I have a chart to share with all of you.  I charted it many years ago for a workshop I was teaching at the Creative Sewing & Needlework Festival in Toronto.  It is stitched in the Continental/ Tent Stitch on a 10ct canvas using Anchor Tapestry wool.  The larger canvas is great for teaching at shows, as one never knows how good the lighting will be, and for a pillow the wool wears better than cotton.  At the time my son, Christopher, was in elementary school and had wanted a Canada themed bedroom. The room looked great, right down to a 6' totem pole.  Over the years his room has slowly transformed into a NFL decorated room with a heavy emphasis on the Chicago Bears, his team.  Today the only sign remaining from his childhood room is this Canadian Flag pillow.  It sits on his window bench among his other pillows.
