Happy Victoria Day!

I'm using the colours of the Union Jack as my inspiration on this day that honours the birthday of the lovely and late Queen Victoria here in Canada (and also, oddly, the current reigning queen's birthday, even though her actual date of birth is April 21st).

Actually, it was my Mom's idea. She suggested I do a square that somehow paid homage to the queen who is responsible for this, the first long holiday weekend of the season.

Her other suggestion was a floral motif because I spent six hours in the garden today moving dirt, planting seeds and finally, finally getting my tomato seedlings in the ground.

And so I combined the two ideas. A white popcorn square, and two flowers, one in red and one in navy blue.

Long live the Queen!

And all together now...

There. Not only have I honoured the queen(s), I've also made up for lost crocheting. Clever girl.

If I do two tomorrow, I think I'll be all caught up...

Hmmmmm we celebrate the queens birthday in June. It seems she has been rebirthed many times. I'm sure the fact that we get a day off is the only reason we would not become a reublic!
