Many years ago when I was a Junior Leader for Brownies, one of the Brownies, Catherine, named me Green Owl because, as she told me, "Green is my favorite color and you are my favorite person". My eyes filled up with tears when I saw Green Owl on your page.
I have a felt shaped toadstool sewn to my camp blanket and the words "Green Owl" used to be written on it. Over twenty years later the words have faded away...so I am going to sew my new Green Owl patch over it.
Thinking of you, Catherine, wherever you are. I hope you are someone's favorite today.
Ryan was very excited to receive the crest - amazed that they were exactly like he drew (they weren't exactly like, but close enough for him!) I think the parents too were amazed at the drawing - stitching miracle! Ryan called me the day the crests arrived so I could hear his excitement as well.
I am crazy about you folks! Next time I am in Calgary, I may go looking for Sylvan Lake!
Your crest was a hit at our dinner on the weekend. Thank you again for all that you did to help us get it accomplished.
