Wednesday's Flowers

It's Wednesday again and I have some hexie flowers to show you.  I love working on these when it is hot.  And it has been hot!  The fan on our air conditioner stopped working and we were without AC for the entire weekend.  Luckily the guy came to fix it on Monday so by bedtime the house was cool again.  This first shot is of some of the sections that will go around the outside of my latest hexagon quilt.

And here are some of the flowers sewn together.  They will be in a basket made of brown hexies.  I have come to realize that hexies can be sewn together to represent anything you wish to display.

I now have to go and get some things ready for dinner.  My DD is coming over for dinner and bringing a couple of Japanese students that she is hosting his week.  I am in the middle of making potato salad.   I will serve them hamburgers and corn-on-the-cob also.  I even baked a zucchini loaf, not especially for my company but because I have so many zucchinis in my garden that I have to do something with them.

Doesn't it look delicious?

And here is a picture of Felix, trying to keep cool.  He is sitting on the register taking in all the cool air.  What a smart pussy cat.
