O Canada

Unlike my usual habit, I finished Heart of Canada by The Victoria Sampler well before Canada Day. It's a cute finish and stitched up very quick. I had barely any time to stitch this week so it took longer than it should have.

I struggled a little with the sheaf stitches since you have to bring the needles up from behind the middle stitch and wrap it around and then put it back in the same hole. I kept piercing the threads. By the time I got the hang of it I was done.

Not much in the way of changes: I filled in the white in the flag since it looked a bit odd to me to have the fabric visible for just that part.

Very nice piece. I have a question though, is that a castle at the bottom of the heart?

Came out great. You do such a neat job with the unusual embroidery stitches. I did the DC freebie heart from that series a long time ago. They are all nicely charted designs.
