Back from Vacation

I realize my posts over the past 5 days have been rather light, but I was on vacation. We didn’t travel anywhere but instead had a stay-cation in our back yard. We celebrated Canada Day twice with back to back BBQ’s with friends and family on Friday and Saturday. On Sunday we took it easy and went to the Drive-in that night. On Monday, we had a BBQ for 2 and celebrated Independence Day for our American neighbours and friends. It was a great 5 days off work but it has left me longing for more days and nights in my back yard.

I miss sewing. I can’t believe how great it felt to be working on 3 quilts at the same time in the spring. My new Janome is wonderful though. I ended up using it twice during my time off. I finished the pillows for the Mr.’s mom (yes I forgot to take a picture) and for mending a shirt. I am in love with it’s walking foot and how it has a built-in 1/4″ seam guide. And it is so quiet! Last week I did manage to get about 1/4 of the quilt top done on the Sugar and Spice.

Tonight, I will be working outside for a little while washing the dirt and grime off the fence. It’s gross. I won’t lie, but the results are stunning and I love home improvement. I will post pictures in tomorrow’s blog.

Happy Canada Day

Canada Day is celebrated on July 1st across the country.  July 1st marks the anniversary of the formation of the union of the British North America provinces in a federation under the name of Canada – that’s the technical explanation, but Canada Day also means fireworks and the year’s biggest national party.  This year we celebrate 144 years of Canadian goodness.

Happy Birthday Canada!
