I had ordered a O Canada flag kit from Connecting Threads in the USA. When it arrived I realized that it was a square flag. Our flag in Canada is a rectangular flag, so I modified the pattern.
Ad to my surprise I was able to get two flags made & three coasters! The rest of the red & white scraps will be used for Christmas or Valentines Day sewing.
The first flag sewn was placed on the front door.
I was really pleased with the fabric in the kit, it even came with the flag fabric backing!
All made for $15 USD.
I missed not having my sewing machine but the Pfaff never let me down & the zig zag around the leaf went well. I just use to using the blanket stitch as my finish. Creature of habit! lol
The livingroom in the wee cottage is just that...wee space.
The cat towers take up space but they're used daily for climbing & for scratching.
Old Tom sleeps through everything, he curled up on his feather down blanket snoozing.
To keep with the colour theme for Canada Day, my Mustang canvas bag hangs on the wall.
Let's go into the kitchen.
And purchased 1/2 dozen cupcakes to go under the glass dome. Yup...one is missing. YUM!!
Let's go outside the cottage.
Armon, a fellow villager, made these lobster boxes for me a few years back. I wasn't able to carry them to the flagpole. They're resting on the garage exterior wall, waiting for Bill to arrive tomorrow & place them with the flagpole. ;-)
