Almost at 200 Followers! Welcome, all!

First of all, Happy Canada Day (or Dominion Day, as it was known when I was a girl :)  Today we celebrate 143 years since the British North America Act created the Dominion of Canada.  Canada is one of those countries which, logically, shouldn't exist, but I'm very glad it does :)  I love my country, and am proud to be a Canadian!

Goodness!  We're almost at 200 followers -- we'll have to do another giveaway to mark that milestone when it happens -- I'll have to ask the KnitWits what they'd like to do :)

  1. Happy Canada Day! I lived in Vancouver for two years and have many Canadian friends here in California. You've reminded my that I need to wish them a happy day too! Love your blog.

  2. Thanks so much, Heather -- I'll be wishing you a Happy Fourth of July in a few days!

  3. Hi Nina ... no wonder people are following you ... your work is superb ... your ideas amazing! I really look forward to your new posts.

    Happy Canada Day to you too ... Eh!!


    P.S. I know I haven't finished my Tutor, but you have inspired me to start a long thought about project... a stone carvers shed. It is going to include a bunch of my stone carvings and works in progress. Perhaps the diversion will get the Tudor going as well.

  4. I see you made it to 200+ followers, congrats! And thank you for welcoming me so very kindly! I love your blog, your detailed processes are so helpful!
