I have finished, albeit temporarily, a long-term project. The last badges are sewn on two camp blankets. They were begun about 20 years ago and belonged to Belle and Missy. The badges were mostly souvenirs of our travels as well as some that friends and relatives sent to them from far-flung places.
The girls grew up and left home and the last 15 or so badges languished in a container in my sewing room. Recently, I located the blankets when I was decluttering the wardrobe and after consultation with the original owners they will now be passed on to Miss O and Izz.
I was inspired to finish sewing the remaining badges onto the blankets.
I am currently looking after my grand-daughters for a few days while Belle is away so when we go home tomorrow I will be able to show them the blankets and try to explain the significance of them. I expect they will be a welcome addition to their bedding as it is currently quite cold at our place.
