Most Populous Province

I haven't felt like really sitting down to stitch over the last few days, so I've decided to continue with the Hearts of Canada series. They're small and full of motifs that I feel like I've accomplished something every time I sit down.

Ontario is one of the original provinces formed when three British colonies became the Dominion of Canada in 1867. It's not the biggest province or territory but about 40% of Canadians live there.

Pictured are the provincial flower, the trillium; the provincial bird, the loon and the provincial tree, the white pine.

The specialty stitch is the Tied Herringbone with I hadn't done before but was very easy.
