It's been a beautiful Monday here at my cottage. I spent the day tatting and cross stitching (poorly). Deana Mackenzie shared these emoji beads with me 2 years ago and I found the perfect thread to go with them. I figure they will make cute scissor dangles.

This year the Very Canadian Tat-a-long be done a day early. The last 2 months Canada has been grappling with the discovery of mass graves of First Nation Children at Indian Residential Schools. The number has increased over the month of June and is now in the 1000s. In light of these discoveries I will be posting June 29 and June 30 but will not post a pattern on July 1/2021, Canada Day. The pattern this year is aimed at highlighting Orange Shirt Day (September 30th). This is a day when we honour the Indigenous children who were sent away to residential schools in Canada and learn more about the history of those schools. The thread used in the pattern is size 20 Lizbeth Thread. Terms
