Beth Kirk (faransgirl, #572) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a beginner level Buttoned Up badge!

"I started my button box when I moved into my first apartment. Until that time I had been using buttons from my Mom's button box. I have a peppermint tin that I got for Christmas that first year and turned it into my Button box. That was 36 years ago. There are now buttons from both my Mother's button box and my Grandmother's button box.

I love my button box and it has grown until now I actually have three tins that contain buttons because the first one got to full to hold them all."

Nancy McClanahan (santa4u, #877) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a beginner level Quilting badge!

"I love to quilt! I have made several baby quilts and even king size quilts. I am currently working on a quilt for my youngest son. I finished his brothers when he graduated high school. I made one for my sons best friends new baby. He fishes with my son so I hand pieced a fish quilt for him.

They all turned out beautifully! I love to hand quilt over machine quilting. It is more relaxing to me."

Beverly Sherman (KMop, #799) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a beginner level Tatting badge!

"My grandmother taught me to do tatting a long time ago. I do know how to double stitch, picot, ring, and chain. I use her shuttle, I made about 1 1/2 yards of tatting lace for pillowcases.

It turned out beautiful. I find tatting a little time consuming, but very beautiful."

Jonnie Nottingham (mtngirljon, #648) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a beginner level Quilting badge!

"This is a small quilt that I used as a demo in a quilting class that I taught. It's about 24" x 24" and is hand and machine quilted. I used real leaves that I picked up on a walk in the creek bed near my home as templates for the quilted leaves.

I think it's beautiful and the hand quilting stitches are very well done."



This the hand quilting on the beginner quilt I submitted.

Jonnie Nottingham (mtngirljon, #648) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a intermediate level Quilting badge!

"This quilt was definitely a challenge. It is iron-on applique' and all the different-colored shapes are different pieces of fabric except the water which, thank goodness, was all one piece. It took hours and hours to cut all the shapes after I ironed the fabric onto the steam-a-seam. I made it for my son for Christmas and made a tiger face using the same technique for his girlfriend. It is machine quilted. I did the water following the shapes in the fabric with sparkly silver thread.

The quilt is beautiful. I did learn, though, that I never want to do this again LOL!! He loved it."

Jennifer Jill Greenfield (draiodoirmna, #752) has received a certificate of achievement in Each Other for earning a beginner level Farmgirl Gratitude badge!

"Beginning December 6, 2009, I began consistently writing in my gratitude journal. It had been rather haphazard in frequency before that. Each night before bed, I wrote 5 things for which I am grateful and did not repeat anything during that month-long time period.

I want to continue with this ritual as it feels good."

Jessica Oakes (joakes1111, #910) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a beginner level Sew Wonderful badge!

"Sew Wonderful is the first farm girl badge I have completed. It was a simple one, but since Mom and I had been working on the Apron badge I had all the materials.

I made the home made pin cushion to go on top of the mason jar that holds my thread, needles, buttons, scissors, and safety pins.

It's adorable! A cute little kit!"

"I have written in a journal for a month now of what I am thankful for. It lifts me up and makes me realize what I have to be thankful for.

It is nice to go back and review, to see where you've been and where you're headed. It puts a picture of your life before you and makes you realize how much you have to be thankful for."

Nancy McClanahan (santa4u, #877) has received a certificate of achievement in Make It Easy for earning a beginner level In the Garden badge!

"I made what looked like a bunch of teepees in my garden. I needed to trim up my persimmon trees so I used the snipped branches, stuck them in the ground in a circle around my green bean mounds and tied them with twine.

They worked beautifully! Plus it really looked pretty and would you believe I grew some trees out of the branches I stuck in the ground! They sprouted leaves!"

Shari Swartz (Sharikrsna, #607) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a beginner level Knitting badge!

"I started by knitting a straight scarf last year, then teaching my friend Rhonda how to make one. For my three hour minimum though, I am using the Super Easy Knitted Slippers. They actually took me three days in my spare time, and while I was sitting with my elderly patient.

The slippers turned out SO cute! I used an emerald green yarn in acrylic for sturdiness, and just tied the buttons on."

Shari Swartz (Sharikrsna, #607) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a intermediate level Knitting badge!

"I made a Prairie Shawl. I had just joined the Sisterhood, and was eager to start earning badges, so I started this project, not realizing I'd have to do a smaller project to earn my beginner badge. I knitted it in the company of my boyfriend and anyone else who came by, as I was obsessed and would not stop. It took me three weeks to complete.

It turned out so well that seasoned knitters commended my work. I used a llama fur and Peruvian wool blend, and circular needles, and yarnover increases to create a nice openwork edging."

Shari Swartz (Sharikrsna, #607) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a beginner level Embroidery badge!

I made shilly shallys for myself, and several friends for Christmas. I used iron on patterns of southern belles, and embroidered a variety of stitches in many colors.

They turned out so beautiful that my friends cried when they opened them. They are afraid to use them, but I told them they'd better!!!
