I'm sorry I've been away from commenting - I had a family emergency and had to go home for a week, and just got back into town. Between that, my hip fracture, and my lost (but now found!) towel, this has been a drama-ridden swap, but I'm excited to get back to stitching.

There's been some beautiful work here while I was away! I'm constantly amazed, impressed, and inspired by you all.

I like making stuff. Rumor has it, I'm an elf. Like a Santa Elf, not one of those elegant LOTR types.  Mostly because I compulsively craft and partially because I have green shoes.

rectangel ~ Miss Alberta looks stunning! I love all the Alberta referrences you mentioned and it's fun looking for the details in your stitching! Her heels are so cute and I love her eyes! The Calgary flames puck stitching is amazing!

timpani~jax ~ another fabulous finished towel!

antarcticraft ~ so glad to hear from you and I hope things will get back to normal for you! Our stitchin' group is pretty much back to normal now. Thanks for hanging in there!

oh Rectangel ! what a beautiful job you did. You definitely captured so much of the Alberta Culture. I couldn't see the Chinook, although I guess you never can!!!!
And I heart Alberta beef too!
All the details are excellent, including the wild rose in her hair.
Thanks for the explanation of understitching - I should have done that on my BC girl - was she holding up by the time you saw it?
I don't recall 1boy1girl1kitty2's contribution, I'll have to go back and look for it.... Huh found it! sorry about that 1boy1girl...

Here's what I added to Nannetta's towel:
(the design below the star is the constellation for virgo)
And here is my fabulous finished nautical towel! Prepare to be very jealous!

sewphie, i absolutely adore the star and constellation you added to my towel!! ~ it's BEAUTIFUL!!! Thank you so much!  Grin
i believe the mailman tried to deliver my towel today when i wasn't home so i'll probably have to pick it up at the post office ...   Roll Eyes i'm so happy i'll see all of our group's beautiful stitching in person soon!

rectangel, Alberta looks awesome!!!

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad
