Getting ready

Canada Day is only a few days away. The Lyndhurst Feral Cat Project is going to take part in the big Canada Day event in Seeleys Bay (Ontario) this year. We'll have an information table with photos of all the cats in the Lyndhurst colony, and we'll have some crafts and baking to sell to try to raise money for the cause.

I'm busy making cookies and cupcakes. My friend Kate reminded me I needed Canada flags for the day, so here are some flags I'm making for the tops of cupcakes.

It's a little scary trying to pipe red maple leaves on white backgrounds, so I piped them on parchment paper. Once they were dry, I was able to place them on wet white icing. That allowed me to pipe a LOT of leaves and use the best ones on my flags. Oh, and FYI, these flags are tiny. Those are toothpicks!

To give you an idea of what we do, here's Jeff:

He was rescued by someone who saw him trying to cross the main street in Lyndhurst. Stephanie (the woman who heads up the group) took little Jeff to the vet and got him medicine for an eye infection, and the vet removed a tick (!) and treated him for fleas. All that costs money, and that is one of the reasons we are trying to raise funds. If you're in the area on Wednesday, please drop by and say, "Hello!"


  1. Jeff, even with a bung eye, and a tick, you would have a huge place in my heart and in our home in an instant. Hugs to everyone who is helping.

  2. Your flags are amazing - so tiny!! What a steady hand you must have. Good luck with your sale!

  3. Poor Jeff. Mowgli says he hopes Jeff feels better soon.
    Your flags look fabulous. I am sure they will be a big hit, for a tiny cupcake! Sorry I caused the extra work.

  4. Your cookies (just like your mittens, socks, graphics, etc.) are works of art! I'm sure that even your wonky maple leafs looked great. Hope your sale was a success!
