Celebrations

Welcome to Slow Sunday Stitching! I have two things to celebrate with you today. 
1) Canada turned 150 years old yesterday! There were parties, parades, picnics, concerts, and fireworks to celebrate. Even though it was a bit rainy throughout the day here, we spent the day outside celebrating with our neighbours and friends. 



2) And in between those celebrations, I finished the last embroidery block for my Life is Beautiful project! The last stitches were put in on the 150th birthday of Canada! This last block seemed to take longer than the other ones, but it's done now and ready to applique onto a 4 patch block.



Were you celebrating Canada's birthday this weekend? Or some other special event? 
Link up your blog post and share with us what you are planning to hand stitch today!

  15. Congratulations on finishing your block - and on such a wonderful day! I've looked at the pattern online so many times, but it's a bit out of my reach. So, alas, I'm living vicariously through you! ;)

    Kathy, I so appreciate you hosting this link up. I've even extended my slow stitching to all weekend - barring a sewing class I may take. Thank you so very much! I so look forward to my weekends! Happy Birthday to Canada!

    We took a Canadian flag in a stand to my MIL's nursing home apartment and played "O, Canada" for her on a YouTube video. She loved it. : )
