For the Canadian Ongoing Wish Swap

I had some fun and thought I would do an embroidery piece for my partner. I have seen ones similar to this for The States but not yet for Canada! So here it is! I used the Satin Stitch in alternating diagonals to get a some what geometric feel to it, but some provinces ( PEI ) were only three stitches big.  





What do ya think?
