Merit Badge Awardees (click for latest awards)

My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is … Nicole Epperson!!!

Nicole Epperson (#6762) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a Beginner Level Embroidery Merit Badge!

“I checked out a couple of stitch dictionaries from my local library. I read about the history of embroidery and learned a few stitches from the books. I put together a sampler of border or outline stitches and the new stitches I learned are blanket stitch, Chinese stitch, feather stitch, double feather stitch, feathered chain stitch, and chevron stitch.

It turned out better than I had anticipated. I learned how to cross stitch when I was younger, so I had the canvas to practice nice, straight stitches for this project. It was a good project for me to start with since there was a bit of familiarity. I even reused an old frame that was collecting dust in the closet to finish it!”

    Nicole, beautiful handwork! Your stitches are perfectly neat . Cross stitching is lots of fun and I know that I enjoyed doing many projects in that craft myself. The cool thing about cross stitching is that it is timeless and you can continue to enjoy your projects for years to come . Congratulations on your badge work and being highlighted here for all of us to enjoy!
