Some little Brownies (the Canadian version of Girl Scouts) came to the door this week selling their spring cookies. The box tells me that the Girl Guides are 100 years old!My own Brownie badges have been sitting in an envelope for, er, 30 years. I wanted to do something with my badges, but admittedly, yellow and brown are hard colors to work with. 30 years after the fact, I sewed this linen pillow to display them. I loosened the tension on my stitches so they'd show between the patches for an old fashioned look.
My children like me to tell stories about what each badge represents, and I like to cuddle and tell them.
