A Camping we will go....

the girl scout troop that is! L is so excited for her entire troops weekend camping adventure in early November. Cabins by the lake and a massive group of giggling girls! We thought it'd be fun for each of the girls to have a special pillowcase for the weekend trip so I let L at it this weekend with her own test project. I'd seen these cute little word pillows once in Garnet Hill I figured, easy enough to make and we'd do no sew lettering. I instructed and watched but SHE did it! Oh the taste of sweet victory, she was so tickled to share with her girl scout buddies what she finished. She sewed the edges together, has grasped the concept of right sides together, knows how to lock a stitch and make iron ons of her own. T was there as spectator, for moral support and desperately pleading to have a go at the iron only to be disappointed to hear the words no. This is a project that we hope to get cracking on real soon for all the girls to complete. We chose 2 fabrics and decided to mix it up on each side.
