Happy Canada Day!

Happy 143 birthday Canada!!!

Did you know that:
  • we all wave the Canadian flag on Canada Day, but it wasn't until 1965 that Canada had a flag of her own.
  • only four provinces - Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Ontario and Quebec - were included in Confederation at the beginning on July 1, 1867. Now Canada has 10 provinces and three territories.
Stitchy update

I had a wonderful surprise visit from Doug and Shirley, amazing stitchers I've met on line through I love Cross Stitching, yahoo group. They were heading to Dawson City and stay couple of nights in Whitehorse. I could not pass the opportunity to meet them in person. We had a lovely chat about stitching of course and traveling, and history, and northern living. After hearing their story about life in Inuvik I don't feel so bad about Yukon.

Lighthouse Island update

I stitched a little and the progress isn't great but every stitch counts...

And now I'm off to Canada Day celebrations, eh!

So long my friends!
