Today marks the 50th anniversary of the Maple Leaf flag. There has been a movement for awhile to make Feb. 15, a national holiday, but so far, it is celebrated in some provinces as "Family Day". Since it is -20C with a stiff breeze today, I imagine there will be a lot of families hiding in their houses.
Meanwhile, I have been busy in my sewing room. I am working on the Necessary Clutch from Emmaline Bags.
There are a lot of steps, and I am trying to manage one per day. Yesterday, I made the flap.
Today, I worked on the body. If you look at the fish in the middle at the bottom, you can see the turn part of the lock.
Here is the lining. It is a soft mauve, another word for purple.
Gaston has the right idea on a cold day.
