Love….. it can go from one extreme to another; either it is totally mushy and commercial or something as simple as a love of the outdoors.
Well, I wanted to do something completely different. Firstly, I haven’t done any hand stitching in this piece except when putting on the binding; and secondly, I’m getting over my fear of free motion quilting and have done the entire background in different motifs.
During the Olympics in February, I found that every time the Canadian flag was raised, I stood proudly in my living room belting out the Canadian anthem with a great sense of pride. So, my interpretation of “Love” is for my country. I may not like the politics, the politicians, the taxes or the weather, but I’m very thankful to be living in this country - O Canada!
