They began to take over so we posted them....

When Twiglet arrived yesterday morning with her bag full of dresses for the little African girls we just had to do a show and tell to share our latest makes with each other.  


My sewing room was filled with little dresses covering every surface and to be honest we both stood back in awe at them all together.  It never fails to amaze us how quickly we both beetle away when we have a challenge on the go.....as ever I had to stand back and snap away so you could all share in the moment....I'm sure all you wonderful bloggers who have sent us fabric will be able to spot the dresses we have made with it.  Thank you to each and every one of you....and you know exactly who you are.  We have since folded up every one of them and have posted them to Louise....all 50 of them!!  [so keep a look out for that heavily weighed down postman struggling up your path Louise.]  That brings our total so far up to 80 between us  :-)

During our Funday Monday, in between my customers, [ and we had lots of those! ] we cut out lots more little dresses and bagged them up ready to make the next batch.  One of my customers came with two carrier bags full of gorgeous fabric she was more than happy to donate to our Dresses for Africa cause......


These were the larger pieces in the one bag and we have cut lots of little dresses from these gorgeous fabrics.



These smaller pieces were in the other bag and these will make really pretty pockets and trimmings for some of the plainer dresses.









We really know such a lot of truly generous folk who have been so willing to donate some really pretty fabrics to the great cause and Twiglet and I have shared out the bags of dress pieces so you will be seeing more pretty dresses popping up on our blogs in the not to distance future  :-)
