Some hexagons in red

 I did a lot of prep work on Sunday. A slew of hexagon shapes were cut and prepped and last night I managed to stitch up the first 3 for the month.

We moved the girl scout meeting inside last night - it was feels like 96 (actual temp of 90) outside around 6:30 in the evening. The girls did go out and chase the chickens around before and after and I got one of the girls dropped off very early as the family was trying to get everyone where they needed to go. We were working on a jewelry badge and made wire rings last night. One of my Cadettes (grade 6) taught us how to do it! I think we will just have 2 more meetings this year - next week to finish our badge and plan bridging. Everyone is moving as we will do both last year and this year. I heard they want an actual bridge so we sill see what we can come up with. A few years ago we borrowed the boy scout one but we were meeting at the church then. They also want a water fight in the back yard! Should be a fun bridging =)

** Bridging is an end of year rite - every 2 years they advance to a higher level. We stopped meetings in March after spring break so did not last year so all of my girls will 'bridge' this year. Daisy is K-1, Brownie is 2-3, junior is 4-5, cadette is 6-7, ambasador is 8-9 and senior must be 10-12. Next year all my girls will be junior and cadette - ranging from grade 4-7.

Very pretty hexies in those reds!
What is bridging? I am not up on Girl Scout stuff anymore--I just recall my own green dress and working on my badge sash...long long ago;000

I'm not up on "bridging" either - I remember I was a brownie in first grade I think and I remember my older sister was a girl scout for awhile but I think none of us lasted long at it.

Good start to RED month, Deb!! I got a bit of RED sewing done yesterday. TWO projects by day three and it's not even my favorite color!

It's going to be fun to add red to all our lighter colors of previous months! Sounds like you have a good plan for finishing out the Girl Scout year, too!
