I am Canadian.

I have lived in Canada over half my life and today I became a Canadian.  I'm not sure why I didn't do it sooner. It was a very nice ceremony, and LM was so good watching with DH, we took her to the playground as a reward. Took a great picture of her with the "Mountie" that was there.

I also did some sewing this week. I started the week with sewing on LM growth chart. This had been sitting for some time as I had quilted one side and wasn't sure how I wanted to do the other. I decided that I wanted to outline the picture and started making good progress. Hopefully you can see it in this photo.
 Then part way thought the week I decided that I wanted to make a couple of rag quilts for two new babies from church. I decided I was going to use the fabric I had but I wanted them not to be the same. On the first one, which is ready for clipping, I used all of the pick fabric with ducks and none of the blue flowers.
For the second one I use the blue flower and no pink ducks, but as I was putting them together I found that some of the fabric I liked better in one or the other. I'm happy with how they look the same but different. This one is ready for the blocks to be sew together. I do put them up on the design wall but don't spend much time in getting them perfect, I think that's some of the charm of a rag quilt.
  For hand work I finished the stitching on my snowman ornaments, now it goes in the pile waiting for sewing. Planning on getting these done in time for Christmas (This year!)

How exciting!!! I'm sure living there for that long you already felt as if you were.

Love your projects! You must have a wonderful fabric stash!
