My daughter moved from Rainbows to Cubs in September. She has been a very busy bee with her challenges, leaving me with the joy of sewing them on.
Until recently I had called upon my ex-partner to do this, but on Monday evening when Alannah came to me stating she needed her art challenge badge sewn on before her meeting in 45 minutes time! Eek….. It was down to me to get out the needle and tread.
Well, you can imagine, just threading the needle to start with was fun! Not.
Then trying to figure out where the badge needed to be placed followed with a quick call to a friend who is a cub leader.
Calm restored, the sewing began. It went very well, it was neatly done and in the right place as described to me.
Although the badge itself…. Was upside down!
Do I un-pick it and send her in in-complete uniform or make her look a fool?
I admitted defeat and un-picked it.
Alannah explained to AJ her leader about my ‘silly sewing’ And came home with yet another badge for me!
Thankfully she didn’t loose points for my mistake and I have already had an email offering me sewing support too.
