Boy Scout Update

Pete is packed and ready to go to the National Jamboree, with 18 hours to spare!
The bus pulls away at 6 am on Saturday, headed for a day of sightseeing in Philadelphia.
They will spend Sunday at King's Dominion and the Jambo starts on Monday!

Class A shirts are pressed and ready! They won't be clean and wrinkle-free for long.

I decided he needed a new pillowcase today, so I finally used some of the Boy Scout fabric I bought ages ago.
Jackie, thank you for keeping the pattern handy on your sidebar!

I've always admired the Turk's Head neckerchief slides that other boys had, so I found a tutorial and made some. Pete will be wearing the official Jambo slide, but he'll have these for back up.

We have some new Eagle Scout friends!

and his brother Matt!
(See the Turk's Head slides?)

I'm really going to miss that goofball!

What a great trip for him!! But it is a long way from home. I am sure you will miss him and he will miss you! Love the pillowcase, how perfect for him! You are welcome... the pattern will stay there whenever you need it!

I have made an Eagle Scout quilt top. I am more than willing to send you a copy of my a pattern if you give me time (I need to copy them from my quilt top!), your son's merit badge list (may need to design and test some more!), and contact info. Send me a quick post on my blog, and then I can contact you.

He will have so much fun! My son didn't make it to Eagle but he and my husband spent much wonderful time together on Boy Scout trips. You are a great Mom!
