Together We Can Do Great Things


I love Skirting the Issue.  I can't ever imagine not doing it.
I always want to do something BIG....you know like pay off someone's mortgage or open a fully stocked house of sewing in Central America...but then I remember...we can barely cover our own monthly mortgage payment and I've never even been to Central America.
 
However, every July I can sew up a storm, with many of you sewing along with me and together we can do something BIG...like give over 500 girls in foster care something made especially for them, with love.  It might not be a new home or a wicked awesome sewing hut but it's something...
 
I could never do this by myself...not even with Elizabeth helping...but with all of you we can do great things. 
So thank you, thank you to everyone who has already made skirts and uploaded them to the linky party, thank you to everyone who has sewn along and has sent us photos and emails, and thank you to those of you who are still going to sew along.  We appreciate everyone of you.
