    1. I was a Campfire Girl. I don't think they'll give me a Gold Award (or giant beads) at this late date. My offspring is less interested in anything involving fabric. Now if only Cosplay could save the world.....

    1. Your'e welcome, Miriam. Days for Girls was a huge eye opener for me. As soon as I get some time I'm going to make some of that stuff. What I really like is that the more colorful the fabric, the better, because of the young women's modesty and shame over blood stains. Great fabric saves the day, literally!
