Oh Canada eh!!! Ô Canada! ᐆ ᑲᓇᑕ!( Uu Kanata! )

July is finished eh!!! Previously I mentioned that I started May, skipped June and was working on July. Well July's finished and I have to complete May and June. July is dedicated to Canada, my home away from home.

I really wanted to finish this piece in time for Canada Day but it didn't happen. My next deadline was July 13, which marked the anniversary of my coming here. So yes it's about celebrations eh!! It's a celebration of my gratitude to God for guiding me into coming here. It's a celebration of my gratitude for my family ( my husband and children - I've found a new life). It's a celebration for finding new friends and opportunities to expand my creativity. It's a celebration of all the many races and cultures in this beautiful country that so many of us now call home.

Oh Canada, we stand on guard for thee. Oh Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

Really nice, from the blank fabric on up, it's a work of art. The painting and embellishments are neat, and the beading is the lovely finishing touch.

what a wonderful piece, so full of life and vibrancy. I love people dancing around the Maple tree and then all the maple leaves dancing in the sky. Looking forward to seeing May and June.
