*~Happy Canada Day~*

I hope you have a wonderful Canada Day! We'll be at the parade... Emily will be preforming with MEI's Screaming Eagles marching band... it's her first time taking on the piccolo! Yesterday we had fun with her flag inspired manicure...
This afternoon we're picking up the two Japanese students that will be staying with us for two nights. It's a very short homestay but we're looking forward to it! We'll have my girlfriend and her family and their two students over for a bbq this evening and then it's off to watch the fireworks... tomorrow we're planning on a day at the beach. We'll drop off the students bright and early Sunday morning... it will be a busy weekend but fun!

And here are my two versions of the Birdie Stitches BOM that I've been following along with... I went with fireworks as LMS did in the original... loving this quilt! Every time we look at them we start humming "Birdie, You're a Firework!"

Happy Canada Day Kimberly! Hope you have a great weekend. My nephew just moved here to Ontario from Surrey and so far I think he loves it! He's 21 and his Dad (my brother) is living here now after living out west for 30 some years.

Love visiting your blog!
