Canada Day Orts


HAPPY CANADA DAY  to all my Canadian blogging friends! I don't know about elsewhere in the country but the weather here is just perfect for Canada Day celebrations. The skies should be just as great as those in the picture above taken at the Parliament buildings in Ottawa.
We've decided to forego all the celebrations in the city and spend a day catching up with some friends. We're hosting a dinner at our home and I made a special dessert for the occasion. In keeping with our patriotic colours, I've made my first white chocolate berry pie but I have a feeling it won't be my last! 



We spent yesterday getting the house spruced up for our guests and there wasn't a lot of stitching going on so no new stitchy photos. However I do have a lot more orts to show for this TUSAL post. That's right, it's the new moon once more!  Look at all those bright colours! Lots of gold from the wedding sampler and that lovely red from my Canada Day stitch. The final stitches on Spring Quaker make up the remainder of all that colour.




Not much else to report for now although I'm sure to have more stitching progress after the holiday weekend. Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by and comment and especially for all the lovely comments on my Spring Quaker and O Canada finishes . I hope you all have a wonderful weekend .
