Carla Crawford (chappieswife, #3366) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a Beginner Level Quilting Merit Badge!

“I used some fabric that a church group no longer wanted, and using a cardboard template, I followed the directions in a Better Homes and Garden book for a nine-patch quilt. I knew nothing about making a quilt and had no teacher.

Even though the points don't match up, I think it turned out fairly well, considering. Many years later, I had a friend machine quilt it.”

Carla Crawford (chappieswife, #3366) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning an Intermediate Level Quilting Merit Badge!

“I joined a group that was teaching beginner quilters, and we did a row quilt, learning how to make a new block each week. We then went home and made more of the same block to complete a row. We added sashing, borders, and a backing. A friend machine quilted it, and I finished with binding.

At first I was pretty sick of the colors after working with it so long. But now I enjoy how it turned out.”

Betty Hoffman (Dapple Grey Lady #5589) has received a certificate of achievement in Cleaning Up for earning a Beginner Level Shopping Green Merit Badge!

“I have had some shopping bags for some time now and am now committing to using them more often. I have six and plan to keep them in the car so that I do not forget to use them. I also have a red one that I only put meat products in.

I find that using the cloth bags easier than the plastic bags that tend to spill in the car and rip since they are more sturdy and hold more. It will also help keep plastic out of the landfills.”

Julia Feeley (JuliaCatherine, #5634) has received a certificate of achievement in Garden Gate for earning a Beginner Level Backyard Farmer Merit Badge!

“We have three chickens. One rooster and two hens. Two are black Copper Marans and one is a Barred Rock. We will be getting two more hens shortly. We got them when they were very young, in November. We kept them inside under a lamp. My husband built a coop and now they are happily living out doors. We move the coop around every so often so the chickens can get fresh grass. My boys love to let them out and run around the yard with them.

We love having the chickens! I am thinking they will start laying in March. It has been a great learning experience for our family.”

Julia Feeley (JuliaCatherine, #5634) has received a certificate of achievement in Farm Kitchen for earning a Beginner, Intermediate & Expert Level Get it Together Merit Badge!

“I love organizing my kitchen! I used the time over Christmas break while my hubby was home to occupy the kiddos, and completed all three levels of this badge. Dec. 27 I organized the pantry and cleaned out things I didn't need. I filled up some storage containers that were not being used. I also made a kitchen "needs list" and posted it on the fridge. Dec. 28 I sharpened all my kitchen knives!

My pantry looks much prettier and my knives are sharp and ready to go!”

Nikki Hurlbut (MrsHurlbut, #5131) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a Beginner Level Aprons Merit Badge!

“I first used a pattern to cut out my apron and had to trim to size. I had to sew each pocket on, then each strap to the apron. I then had to sew ribbon around the length of the apron for added color.

It was my first apron so I cannot be too upset. However, I am going to need alot more practice if I hope to make a hobby of this one day!”

Nikki Hurlbut (MrsHurlbut, #5131) has received a certificate of achievement in Cleaning up for earning a Beginner and Intermediate Level Recycling Merit Badge!

“Our city's recycling center, ironically, is only open during business hours (8-5). Unfortunately I work full time and am unable to take things to the recycling center. However, I have started to keep and reuse all plastic bottles we have in the house. I either wash them and refill them with water, or I use them for crafting projects. I also only buy reusable bags for the store. All cardboard/paper products are either saved for my garden for the spring, or used for fire starting material for my wood burning stove in the winter time.

I have actually used this task/category for some time. I had to have more than 1 bag of trash for my house a week. It works very well for my household. It helps that my children know the rules of recycling so they can help!”

Elizabeth Crick (Madinet85, #4915) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a Beginner Level Aprons Merit Badge!

“I made a half-apron for myself from a pattern in a book called "One Yard Wonders". I spent approximately 3 hours making the apron, and learned how to do a new finishing seam.

I now have a lovely half-apron that will hold my clothespins while I hang clothes on the line outside.”

Sherrilyn Askew (Sherri, #1350) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning an Intermediate Level Safe Toys Merit Badge!

“My son was a Boy Scout and I was an adult leader. A few years ago I made a doll for a scout retreat and gave it to my son once the retreat was over, after all, it is a scout themed doll. It earned me a funny look from him, but he did keep the doll.

She turned out fabulous! She is in full scout uniform, right down to the hand embroidered patches on her shirt, and is wearing hiking boots. Underneath the uniform is a animal print thong and an animal print push-up bra. (Yes, I was very tongue-in-cheek with the scouts, but it went over well). She has painted nails and toenails, and wild hair. She is definitely a Glamper Girl!”

Dena Corry (dena91, #5620) has received a certificate of achievement in Farm Kitchen for earning a Beginner Level Get it Together Merit Badge!

“I love organizing so this was a great way to start! I went through our storage containers and separated the extra lids from the rest that had matching lids. Since I do this about once a year, there were only 2 lids without partners. I know they are being used for different purposes right now so I set them aside for a few days to decide if I still want them to be food storage lids/containers.

I had so much fun doing this that I went directly into the Intermediate badge work! Love it!”

Dena Corry (dena91, #5620) has received a certificate of achievement in Farm Kitchen for earning an Intermediate Level Get it Together Merit Badge!

“After I finished the Beginner task, I went right onto the Intermediate work! I went through every cupboard in our kitchen (plus the china cabinet) and got rid of everything I don't use anymore. I put them in a bag and plan to donate them to our homeschool group 'free cycle' table in January. I've been collecting kitchen 'tools' for many years now, so I have most things I need. However, I store my Dutch oven and sprouting supplies in our camper. I made a commitment to get them out of storage and begin using them again in the new year.

I love the changes I made in my storage and china cabinets! I used to store our pretty wedding china in the underneath cupboards and only saw them once a year. Now I moved them to the upper glass cabinets and see them every day! Also, everything I use daily/weekly fits easily in my cupboards and looks comfortable not crammed. I also organized things by theme (baking supplies over the fridge, storage containers above the counter, etc. I'm planning on getting my sprouter and dutch oven back in the kitchen this week. The only other thing I would like to add is a dehydrator. I looked up MaryJane's suggestion at www.dryit.com and I'll have to save up for even the counter model; maybe this spring? It's definitely on my wishlist!”

Deborah Meyer (dmeyer, #4099) has received a certificate of achievement in Make it Easy for earning a Beginner Level Build it Green Merit Badge!

“I wanted a way to show off pictures of my grandchildren. So I decided to use an old window to put their pictures in.

I painted the window black first. I then crackle painted Tuscan red on top. I put burlap material behind each picture to fill in the empty area behind each picture. It turned out great. Now I just need to finish getting my pictures in it.”

“I started this project by reading the book "Dare to Repair" by Julie Sussman and Stephanie Glakas-tenet. I then painted my bathroom cabinets. I used a black base coat and a Tuscan red top coat to crackle. I love the new look of my bathroom.”

“The Simple Times Farm-girl Club meet on October 25, 2013 and made powdered laundry soap. We then made bar hand soap during our December 25th meeting. We shared all our cleaning recipes during this time also.

It was a lot of fun making the soaps during our meeting. The soap turned out really good.”

Deborah Meyer (dmeyer, #4099) has received a certificate of achievement in Each Other for earning an Expert Level Greatest Generation Merit Badge!

“My husband and I went on a trip to Germany this past year to see my son, daughter-in-law and new grandson. My mother came along with us.
We spent a lot of time visiting while visiting castles, ruins, and all the many other things that Germany has.

While we were there, we also went to the Netherlands. We toured a wooden shoe factory, a cheese factory. We also toured Amsterdam.

We had a lot of fun together. I believe this trip will be one that the three of us will never forget.”

Deborah Meyer (dmeyer, #4099) has received a certificate of achievement in Each Other for earning an Expert Level Languages/Culture Merit Badge!

“As a second grade teacher, my class studies Christmas Around the World. I chose Mexico for all three parts of this badge. Each student loved that they got their own pretend passport and a plane ticket each time we studied a new country.

We discussed how the Christmas holiday is celebrated from Dec. 12th until Jan. 6th. We talked about Las Posadas and the Feast of Epiphany. We learned about some of the traditional food that is eaten at Christmas time- Biscochitos, Rasca de Reyes, Bunuelos, and Ponche. We also learned about the role that pinatas, paper lanterns and poinsettias play during the holiday.”

“I found great instructions for a button bracelet in Terri Degenkolb's Whimsicals Pumpkins and Spice book. I had gathered all of my buttons for the beginner level of this task, so I found some favorites and an old costume necklace (that I deconstructed) and spent the lovely winter morning making a bracelet.

I think it is lovely! And it fits great!!”

Melissa Osborn (#406) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning an Expert Level Buttoned Up Merit Badge!

“Once I decided on a Merit badge to work on, I started doing some online research regarding the history of buttons, which was actually very interesting. I then sorted through my button collection to see what types I may have examples of. While most of my buttons are plastic, I do have many metal buttons, a few that look like mother of pearl buttons, some wooden buttons, a leather button, fabric and yarn buttons, and a beautiful Bakelite button.

I learned that buttons were first used primarily for decoration and first commonly used for fastening in 12th century France. The word button comes from the French word Bouton (the root of which is bouter - meaning to push.

The first buttons were made of bone, antlers and horns. Leather buttons made in the middle ages and early America.Metal buttons have been found dating to the Bronze age. Wooden buttons since the 18th century and became widely used during WWII because of material shortages. Some other types of material used include ceramics, pearl, wool, shells, crocheted, even hair and silk.”
