Canada Day 2.0

If you saw yesterday's post you know that it was pretty wet and rainy here, which meant cancelled Canada 150 fireworks. Apparently they are a go for tonight but there's also a thunderstorm in the afternoon forecast, so there's no guarantee. Fingers are crossed.

As I wait, I'm working on hexies. I've made a start on my red & white Canada 150 hexie diamond to include in Minnie - just need to add the outside ring of hexies.








It was a toss up between the cream floral and the tiny red & cream print; the floral wins because they are already cut ­čśŐ.

Those little stars seemed like the perfect celebratory print to include in this one.

















I'm working on larger hexies too. There are now six hexies together for Anna Levens and I'm turning under more cream hexies to add the next row.












And, given that the rains had let up for a bit this morning, I went out to check on the rhubarb. To my delight there is still a good crop there (despite the soggy, soggy earth) so I've got the butter softening up to mix up a Lemon Buttermilk Rhubarb Bundt Cake. YUM! Love long weekends!....M
