ONE HUNDRED SKIRTS!!!!

Drumroll, please....

I was contacted by Liz from the lovely state of Utah this morning. She wants to make some skirts in the larger sizes so that brings us to the grand total of...

100 SKIRTS!!

I don't know which size and how many, so I'll just count it as one skirt and put it in the grand total, but not the size chart. Thank you so much, Liz! So....where do we go from here?

This is what I'll be tracking from here on out. I will take and post pics of the skirts as they arrive at my home. If you wish to have a link to your blog or website, please include that in your package. And don't forget to name your skirt for the tags! :) I will keep a running count of Skirts Received vs. Skirts Promised to help us stay on track with actually having the skirts finished and ready to ship by August 1st.

Also, please feel free to continue to join in, if you wish. I don't want to leave anyone out who wants to participate. And we do have a few sizes that don't have 10 skirts simply because I have extras of some sizes and some skirts were promised, but no sizes designated. I intend to continue sewing all the way up to August. I want to have a little extra margin just in case some skirt donors were unable to complete their donations. And I'd love to have some extras for the new orphans that will be arriving when more dorms are built.

There are no words to express how much I appreciate each and everyone of you. This project just got away from me...in a good way. I had fully intended to sew 100 Skirts. However, the power of community, even a "virtual" one, had a different idea. I like it this way even better. A wonderful statement of good will and compassion. Ya'll are awesome!

There will be a MAJOR giveaway in honor of reaching our goal. I will be putting together a nice big goodie box soon as well as some smaller prizes. Stay tuned for your opportunity to win!

Hugs and Kisses

Yahooooooo! What an awesome display of people coming together to accomplish a very large task. It has been an encouragement to me and I would like to learn to sew a little better so that I could help out in the future. Thanks for the inspiration, Charity!
