Vacation & Waterskier

Here we are in Hope, British Columbia. We left Victoria around noon. Victoria was lovely and I even found a charming little needlework shop. Mostly knitting & cross stitch, I bought a couple of patterns. I can't show them to you till I get home because I don't have a scanner. We took ferries to and from Victoria which was really cool! Tomorrow we head to Banff, but I think we will take 2 days to get there. Internet connections have been unreliable, so I may not be able to post again till we get home.

My husband says I should show you the pieces I have made for him. So here is the Waterskier. I started with an ad in Waterski magazine for the waterskier himself, and also referred to some photos of DH. I used some rayon ribbon for the water which worked well but was hard to handle. I don't remember what thread I used for the spray!
