Scads of Beautiful, Fun Skirts!

We are almost there, ladies! A ton more skirts came in this last week so pull up a chair and get comfortable. I received word of two more skirts on their way and I'm finishing up about 6 more here. I think that will put us at goal. I'm hoping to get these mailed to Guatemala by the end of this week. I have to shop for a couple of dozen tops for some skirts that came in without, but after that we should be ready to ship!

I was blessed to pieces to receive these ELEVEN skirts from Sally. Sally sells children's clothing on Ebay. You can see her work and visit her seller page HERE. They are all beautifully made with sturdy mock flatfell seams, perfect topstitching and fun pockets or ruffles. The fabrics are cheerful and soft, which will appeal to the young girls.

So...here they all are...Please excuse the poor pictures. I had to shoot indoors as it is 20 degrees below zero outside. The lighting is poor. I'm sorry the photos don't do Sally's beautiful and generous gifts justice.

And these two skirts were sent in from Elaine. You can visit her blog by clicking HERE. You can also visit Elaine on her business website. They are lovely cotton knits. One has tie-dyed stars. She has embellished the bottom row with rhinestones. The other is a fun green and purple rugby stripe with generous pockets in the sideseams. These were sent in much needed large sizes. I didn't want the Plus-sized girls at the orphanage to get left out. Elaine also included a cash gift to help with international shipping. Very thoughtful! Thank you so much, Elaine!

I only have a few more to post - as soon as they are completed and then we will be shipping soon. I will post one last photo of all the skirts in their baggies ready to go! And one of me at the post office mailing them away!!

Thanks to everyone who has been part of this project. We're almost there!

How cute!

She made my daughter's Christmas outfit this year. I didn't realize she was part of this skirt project too.

I love that one with the stars.
