Happy Dancing

For those of you that don't stitch, upon completion of a project stitchers do a 'happy dance' much like the lottery happy dance you see on the TV commercials. Here's my finished Ottawa Sampler (with changes, as usual!). I am not sure I am 100% thrilled with the 'Ottawa' line, it sure looks like something is missing on either side. The designer went to considerable lengths to balance the piece from side to side and I feel bad that I've changed it so I was wondering... do you think it would look better if I used backstitching to connect the vines from the pumpkins to the branches of the flowers? Or what about the upper portion of the RCMP officer? One on each side? I didn't want to take him out in the first place!

Since uploading photos via a dialup connection is TORTURE, I will add more once I'm back in the city. Until then, have a wonderful day.

(One more note: I wanted to mention to Dani that I appreciate your comments, I only just got them today because for some reason Gmail did not deliver them to my Outlook inbox... so, thanks Dani! I will let you know about joining your CDC/Paradigm Lost SAL when (if) it arrives at the store and I see if I can afford another new start! Glad to see you here...)
