Then it was time for ice cream! We all enjoyed make your own sundaes and presented Dana and her assistant leader Joan with gifts from the families of the troop. I also showed off a patchwork quilt that the Brownie girls had started back in February, when I was the meeting volunteer and taught 14 seven year olds how to sew, embroider, make a bean bag, use a sewing machine, and introduced them to sewing patterns. They had pretty much finished the patchwork part and I worked on Monday to put the backing on, fill it with batting and hand-tie quilt it. It really was adorable. They did a beautiful job for their first try!!
In other Michaela news, she attended an American Girl Mystery birthday party on Sunday and each guest was assigned a character to play. Michaela was supposed to be a hobo, and she looked so cute all hobo-ed out that she suggested I "take a picture and put it on the blog". She had a great time at the party!
