I am excited to begin working on my merit badges and sharing my experiences with everyone! After much debating I was finally able to pick the top 4 badges I plan to accomplish first!
I choseÖ.

1.Pampered Pets (Outpost)
-Itís important to me that my pets are healthy and will live a long happy life. Knowing what is best for them will allow me to enhance their life.

2. Bread Making (Farm Kitchen)
-I have always enjoyed cooking and now look forward to a better way of cooking.

3. Embroidery (Stitching and Crafting)
- Would love to make something special for my baby boy just like my Grandma Butters made for me.

4. Water Conservation (Cleaning Up)
- I love the idea of helping save the planet as well as help me save money on my bill.

With that in mind, what merit badges do you fellow farmgirls plan on accomplishing first? Or working towards right now? Any of them hold a special meaning that drives you to accomplish one over another?

Much luck and enjoyment in your merit badge experiences!

Jill, yes check it out! Congratulations on finishing more badges. Which ones have you finished? I donít envy you right now lol. Painting a house is not fun and itís a lot of work. Good luck with your house painting and hopefully you will be done soon.

I am feeling a little bummed lately. I have been wanting to work on my cross stitch, but so many other projects have been requiring my attention first. I been able to sneak in a few stitches here and there but not much. The days just keep flying on by.

Jill, the apron is for me. I will be working on the next levels of the badge so I will be making one for a gift soon. I will probably make 2 for gifts so I don't have to choose between the 2 people I'm thinking will appreciate it.

Andrea, I agree with everyone, your apron is lovely. Is it for yourself or for a gift?

Krista, I didn't realize there was a canning badge. I'll have to check that out. I've got a couple more done that I just need to write up but we are in the midst of painting the exterior of our house. Is there a badge for that? ;)

Save it in another place to avoid losing the work again.

Thanks Sara. It took me awhile to get the badge submitted and then once I was ready I lost my Sisterhood number lol. Now I have it written down in my Merit Badge Binder so I wonít forget again. Iím still working on my intermediate cross stitch badge.

To be honest I havenít paid close attention to what type of trees are around me. I only know the crab tree because we purchased it. We have 2 in the backyard that Iím not sure what they are. It would be good for me to do the badge so I can learn more about them. Especially since we would like to purchase some more for our yard in the future.
