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 chose….

1.Pampered Pets (Outpost)
-It’s 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!

My button collection is officially started! There are so many neat buttons. All different sizes and shapes and pretty colors. My favorite button is a wavy button.

Now I can apply for my beginner buttoned up!

Jill, that is so exciting. I would love to hear if you end up finding any that work for both. Keep us posted on if they end up doing any!

Thanks for the information, Krista. I had been thinking to have the boys work on things to put in the local fair this summer when they are visiting. But I will take a look at the badges and see if we couldn't do things that would work for both.

Karen, I think so too!

Jill, I am actually planning to work on the young cultivator badges with my daughter who is now 6 and with my 2 sons who are 7 and 8. I think it just depends on the badge they pick and their skill level. Some require writing in a journal. My boys would be ready for that especially my 8 year old, but Everleigh would struggle a little. That's why I plan to start with the hands on badges for them.

That's an interesting badge, Krista. I had never looked at it before. I have quite a large button collection from my mother and aunt. I did sort them into colours at one point. It would be interesting to look at them again from a collector's point of view. Maybe over the summer. Thanks for your sharing. I'll have to look into button crafts. I had intended to make Christmas ornaments one year. I haven't looked at the young cultivator's badges, are there some suitable for 7 year old boys?

Surprisingly I don't have any random buttons. Any time I have needed a button I have just purchased what I needed. I recently purchased a large bag of buttons and this week I plan to work on my buttoned up badge. I am also going to involve my kids and have them work on their young cultivator button badges. Now that Everleigh has turned 6, we can all work on them together. The button badge seems like an easy place to get started!

I want to borrow The Book of Awesome to start my gratitude badge. I sent an email to the farm, is there somewhere else I am suppose to go.
Thank you.

Thanks Denise. The wood box the plant is in started scratching the end table so I knew I needed one.

Thank you Jill. I do too. That is what drew me in so much.

That looks lovely, Krista! Nice work! I love the Celtic style design.

Denise, sorry for the delay, but I finally finished my macrame coaster. Here it is under my plant.

I really like how the blue sticks out against the white.

That's neat Shennandoah. Please share when you finish.

Thanks Denise! I’m working on getting the expert level badges I’ve earned so far embroidered and stitched onto my farmgirl tote. Definitely rusty but getting lots of practice!

Thanks Krista!
That's a beautiful embroidery Shennandoah!

Denise, I purchased my cord from Amazon. This size is 3mm. It's actually not that small. It's about 12 inches from point to point. Once I finish mine ( because I gave mine to my mom since I didn't finish the second before Mother's day) I will take a picture of it under a plant for some comparison.

Shenandoah, your sampler is so pretty!

Krista

Krista that is so cool! I just finished my sampler for the beginner embroidery badge. I found a frame at the thrift store I just need to paint it and assemble it.

Love it Krista!!! I'm going to have to look and see if I could find some heart patterns. I really like hearts.

I love the color. Teal is my favorite. Where do you find cord small enough to make a coaster?
