Perhaps you didn't know, Jackson got fired from his job a few weeks ago after he dented the fender on "his" trailer. Really a BS reason if you ask me, but of course I wasn't consulted. Anyhow.........
Sewing has always been my stress reliever (except after Mom died, then it was just my grief therapy but that's a whole other story), and after I get to sew for awhile I feel so happy & calm.
So I felt like I needed a project to keep me focused and be happy for my children. Then I remembered the Haiti Orphanage project for March that AC4C (Yahoo group), and I decided that I would make several skirts and pairs of pants for these children. Now while these children are dying from lack of proper food and clothes won't help their hunger but they will be properly clothed so they can go to school -- so making the clothes will help me because it is a service that I can provide, and at the same time get my mind off my own problems.
Well, today I completed these skirts and pants, and will be sending them in a box along with a 'sweet little dress' [originally made for my Katelynn but I can always make her more dresses], formula samples, pencil sharpeners, diaper safety pins, receiving blankets, and 3 packages of (3 each) diaper shirts. This little bit that I can do as a service for others is also a service to me too.
Now I'm going to try to insert some pictures and I hope it works.
