Late this afternoon, Lily returned from her first Girl Guide summer campout at Camp Samac. It was the first time she slept in a tent, started her own fire, and cooked her own food on open flame. She had a great time.
She has had a successful year at Girl Guides and collected many badges for her sash.
I have been working on this camp blanket for awhile. It has our family badges from the 1950s, 60s, 70s, and early 80s, and now a few from 2015 from three generations of guides. I used a Hudson Bay Company fleece pointe blanket. Once Lily finishes Guides, the badges from her sash will be transferred to the blanket.
Here is a close up of a few of the badges from the 1950-60s that belonged to my aunt.
I also thought I would share the “sitapon” Lily made for camp circles. It is made from an old rice bag filled with newspapers and sealed with duct tape. She said it worked perfectly.
I also made her a pillowcase using Peanuts campfire fabric.
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!
