Although we've been experiencing a very early heat wave I've managed to do a bit more stitching on my leaves. The centre vein is one long drizzle stitch of about 40 wraps that I tacked down at the top. The side veins are bullion knot. The two yellow outline stitches are both coral stitches and the orange outline are bullion loops.

Saturday morning my friend Rita came and picked me up so we could do a bit of the Western Washington Shop Hop. It started on Wednesday and went through until Sunday. We crossed over the border at Aldergrove B.C. and went to Lynden Washington. First stop was a bite of breakfast and then we walked a few doors down to Calico Country. On display on the wall is last year's row by row of flip flops or thongs as I grew up calling them and below is the H2O theme depicting boats and a lighthouse along with a few seagulls. Interesting design choice for a farming community.Here is the block they offered for the WWSH, a chrysanthemum.
They have some wonderful old sewing machines in their shop. This is a Kenmore.
They were also showing this porthole quilt they designed to honour the ferry builders and all the ferries that are seen along the coast.

Third and final day of stitching with Sue was very fulfilling. Sue has been stitching samples of her new line of threads. She has 36 colours of Eleganza, Dazzle and Razzle threads in three different thread weights.
