Heard from my son and he graduates March the 9th. I'm so excited to have heard from him. I am wondering if there are any others out there with the same SHIP/ DIV. Please post if you are of this SHIP 11/ DIV 084. I would sure like to hear from anyone else. Missing my son are you?
Ladies, I have a "tentative" date for BattleStations for 083/084. Can't post it on the site, but you can friend request me for it.
Does anyone know if Div 84 went through battle stations yet?
Can someone please explain to me about the scarves? My son is in div 084. Do we get material and make the scarves? Thanks for letting me know.
HI TrumbullCTmom: My son is 084. Keep your phone handy today, we might be getting a call :) Our scarves are gold, with navy numbers and anchor. I bought my fabric at Joann's. ($5.99 yd) then I cut it 65 inches long and 8 inches wide. I cut my fringe 1/2 inch wide and 3 inches long. I used a ruler and a pencil to draw my lines so I could cut straight. Some of the pencil marks did not come out in the wash though. :( I took mine to a place that does monogramming because I was just too busy to run around town looking for a navy anchor and numbers. Good luck and safe travels to Great Lakes! :)
Hi, Trumbull! the Moms of each division pick a scarf color, and then wear them at the meet & greet and at PIR to help ID each other and show solidarity. You still have time to make a fleece scarf, or just buy a simple scarf in the color at Walmart or Target.
To make a fleece scarf, simply cut a strip (loooooooong rectangle) across the width of the fleece fabric (usually about 60" wide). When I made mine, I used a rotary cutter, but scissors will work fine and fleece is VERY easy and forgiving. Choose your width: 8, 10, or 12 inches. Then "square off" the ends and cut fringe. The "fingers" of the fringe are cuts, about 1/2 inch apart and approximately 1.5-2.5 inches deep. This is a fast, simple project. You can get your fleece at JoAnns or any fabric store. I'm going to find you a picture.
Go to the ~3rd page (??) of the div 83 group . . . there's a pic loaded with an example!
