I'm almost finished my Master Spinner course and then I can get back to doing some badges. The spinning one for sure and probably the dyeing will be my first, but bibliophile sounds like fun too.

Wow Hilary you are awesome! My TBR pile is small. I have about 15 books on my list. I hope to get around to having a list, both completed and want to read, like you some day!

KnyttWytch, do you still have the certificate that you received when you joined? It should be on there. It should also be in your emails, when youíve earned a merit badge/ certificate.


Iíve been gone most of last year~~ just too much going on! The last time I submitted for a badge was in October 2017!
I submitted for my Homespun Xmas expert badge. I probably have more, but I need to read through the merit badge list, especially since we have so many new ones. Especially the bibliophile one.

My neighbor saw my merit badges, and the books I received last year (sister of the year 2017), and wanted to know more about The Farmgirl Sisterhood. 24 hours later she joined the Sisterhood; so now I get to mentor her. Helping her learn how to sew, and we made a cute chicken mixer cover. Hopefully sheíll get her first merit badge for it.

Glad you found your number Hilary.

Happy to have you back Pixiedustdevil! Keep us updated on which badges you are working on and I hope to see your friend around soon. Hopefully she will share a picture of her mixer cover with us.

That will be so much fun! Once baby makes her arrival I'm hoping to start some badges myself.

I'll be starting with the beginner. If I remember correctly it involves using a drop spindle which I'm not very good at. I had to spin 10 yards for my course, but ... One of the ladies in my spinning and weaving guild is going to do a little workshop and I'm on the list, so helpfully a bit of instruction will help.

I received a spinning wheel from my husband's grandmother - and I've been teaching myself to spin on there. I do think it would be easier if I could start with a drop spindle - but am so happy to have her spinning wheel!

I started a sourdough mother too - I truly love sourdough bread. The bread turned out delicious - but it seems I'm the only one in the family who truly enjoys it. However, the family does enjoy my sourdough cinnamon buns made with organic palm sugar in replacement of brown sugar, and blueberries. Mmmmm!

I'm not sure it's easier to start with a drop spindle Joyce. It drops, frequently. Although I have heard that in some parts of Peru, little children as young as 3 go everywhere drop spinning as the family needs the yarn to make blankets etc. What style of wheel is the one you've inherited?

I love the idea of making something anywhere one goes. I've wanted to learn the drop spindle ever since I saw a Peruvian woman on TV spinning while she walked along with her llamas.

In our guild they have a drop spinning walk along the harbour in Victoria one Sunday in the summer. I don't know about walking and drop spinning, that would add another whole layer of coordination.

I am starting the Community Service Badge. I have my Community Service Journal set up and am ready to start the research. This will be my first badge.

Good luck Jill! I know you will do great!

Joyce, I am a sourdough bread lover. It definitely has a different taste, but I enjoy it. Your cinnamon buns sound delicious! Especially with blueberries.

Way to go Marie! Keep us updated on how the badge is going!
