Go West

The first finish of the year: Heart of Alberta.

I actually finished it off late last night but didn't get a chance to post until now.

Let's see, what's there to say about Alberta? Most people probably know about the oil that comes out of Alberta. It's also one of the prairie provinces and the biggest wheat producing province in the country. There's also the Calgary Stampede, which is an annual rodeo festival. And the Alberta Badlands where tons of dinosaur fossils were found.


Pictured are the Wild Rose, Great Horned Owl and Lodgepole Pine, the provincial flower, bird and tree respectively. The specialty stitch was the Crow's Foot Stitch which was a breeze.

That's lovely! I especially like the roses - the wild rose is the state flower of my home state, Iowa. However, there are far fewer dinosaur bones in Iowa than Alberta, about which I'm kinda jealous...
