finally got the chance to up load some of the dresses I have done to go in Christmas shoe boxes to orphanage and school in Haiti. If you remember 100 boxes 50 girls and 50 boys. also 5 of us girls in Homemakers hand quilted a King quilt for the volunteer fire Dept to raffle off for a fund raiser. we had help with all the blocks from others who could sew but just the 5 of us could quilt. Did not get a pic before the presentation of the quilt. It was Red white and blues(calicoes) sashing and backed and bound in white. Beautiful! All dresses, the fabric is mostly donated to me. love you guys!

So beautiful! Some friends and I are going to make some little dresses. I like these better as it seems they would last longer than pillowcase dresses. Is this a pattern you could share, or tell me where to get it?
They look so pretty!

Type in Lillian's Dresses for charity on computer(I am not that Lillian) search and you should get several choices of her patterns. It's a basic pillow case dress with sleeves added and elastic for neck. Not in any shape this moment to go into a lot of details. Pain is bad!

Thank you my dear. They do not have the finesse you have in your beautiful work, but these kids that have a home do not have water so clothes are washed in a creek. Those in orphanage have a well with water piped in.

WOW! you have been so busy, no wonder I haven't seen much of you on here. You are such a sweetie to do all this for those children. Would have loved to seen your quilt too.
I am so glad to read that you are going on a Homemaker's convention next week. It should be great fun and I know your room mate will look after you. Please send us some pictures of your time away. Love Chris

Thanks Shirley. These kids live in very hot ,hot country so every thing they get to wear is light and airy. I understand most have never even had a pair of shoes. We try to send what I call Flip Flops to put on their little feet.

Thank you Gabi. These children are the poorest of the poor. Their ages range from 4--10. I try to do some in each size and try to make them each a little different
