I asked my boys along with one of their friends if they would help me to "show off" the pile. Amusingly, my oldest boy chimed in to make sure that I wasn't going to make them actually wear the skirts.
Gosh, I hadn't even thought of that. Might have been a good idea...
We stacked and stacked, and the whole time the skirts just toppled and collapsed. The three piles were the best we could come up with, but even those are falling over against the boy's legs. We wanted to lay them out on the front lawn, but the melting snow made that impossible.
My job is now to box up these skirts and get them to a gal who is leaving for Pennsylvania in one week. She will drop them off there and they will be taken to a place where the next missionary group going to Haiti can pick them up. The transport of these skirts is going to cost nothing. NOTHING. Can you believe that?
I want to thank each and every person who contributed to this Sewing Seeds project. The skirts are beautiful and creative and I am sure they will put smiles on many little faces. What a wonderful thing to use your gifts to bless another person in need.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
As soon as I have some, I will post pictures of the girl's wearing their skirts. My friend whose cousin is a missionary in Port Au Prince has given instructions for pictures to be taken and sent to us.
I can't wait to see!
Have a wonderful Monday!
