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!

Krista, it's coming along nicely! Just wait..you'll get to a point where it goes a lot quicker!
Kathy, you will have fun doing that badge! It was one of my favorite! Now's the time to start working towards Christmas.

I am putting my toe in the water and I am beginning with Homemade Christmas. I have been planning to do this for a long time so when I saw this badge I knew it was "the" time to begin.

Cross stitching picture update! Itís going slower than I had hoped. I need it finished before Christmas. This is the bears front leg. Iím starting to move towards the shoulder and towards the head.

I havenít been able to get much of my cross stitching done lately and I havenít started any new badges because I need more things finished before starting anything else. This time of year always tends to be more crazy and I run out of hours in the day. Good luck with all your badges Sara. Hopefully you can finish some soon. Jill you have been very busy. I hope things can be back to normal for you shortly.

I'm still working on Reading, 'Riting and 'Rhythmatic. I'm reading "Songs of the Sage" poetry by Curley Fletcher. Someone recommended cowboy poetry (I'm sorry, but I don't remember who) which I'm quite enjoying. Thank you for the recommendation. I've been super busy lately with 3 adult kids moving back into the house, which has meant reorganizing the entire house. I've been cleaning out the attic of 20+ years worth of stuff saved for some future want. I'm repainting and putting in cupboards in order to move my fibre studio and storage up there. In the meantime, there are boxes everywhere. Hopefully another week will see it done. Thanks for checking on us Krista. :)

What is everyone working on this month? Anyone start a new badge?

Krista

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.
