This was taken the night I made my Brownie promise. I think I was seven and feeling nervous.
I really liked the idea of acquiring badges - I can remember pouring over the handbook planning the toymaker badge (which I never got). I can also vividly remember the badge test where I had to hand wash a pair of socks in a big tin bucket. Was that the homemaker badge? However, I didn't actually get that many. But I've kept them all these years.
The Pincushion Challenge for August and September is 'recycle'. Finally those hard-won badges have a use :)
