Yesterday's Sewing Bee with 8 teenaged girls from my local church was determined to be a hit...with lots of pleas for more of the same in the future. :) We had a wonderful time. I will post pics soon. I was so busy helping girls that I didn't think to take as many photos as I should. I apologize for that. We had 4 skirts finished during the Sewing Bee and the other four are very close to being finished. The girls took them home to finish them up. They all did a wonderful job, especially considering that most of them are beginning seamstresses.
Eight more skirts plumped up our Skirt count quite nicely. Plus, this morning I received photos of TWELVE skirts from Betty (cyclegirl). I also heard from two more new participants. Isn't that amazing! I've added these TWENTY (!!!) new additions to our count. Our current final total (just of sizes specified, not counting requests to help with no size declared yet) is...drumroll, please....
