We started bright and early Saturday morning to begin to make the pads, envelopes and bags.
I was so blessed by our teen friends that came and helped as well.
Busy sewing. (and growling..we all got pretty aggravated at our machines and one point or another…and it was never our fault. always the machines!)
our official ‘thread our needle’ gal for us who can’t see anymore.
Clyde was there to keep watch on things.
still cutting…but never fear…reinforcements have arrived!
Steve was making sure everything was under control.
Our first kit complete!! A cause for much celebration!!
We are on a roll now!
These girls made cards to go in each bag. :)
Our sewing expertise gal arrives and fixes all of our machines (told you it was the machine’s fault!) and serged all our washclothes into pads for us!
Note to self…check out machines before we sew next time! :)
more reinforcements for sewing
and for cutting……
End of the day….whew.
Thank you to everyone who donated underwear and fabric and time! I am so blessed by those who worked and donated for people they will likely never meet (until Heaven!)
and a BIG thank you to my hubby who ran the kids everywhere and served us lunch and kept everything else under control—and has let the living room, dining room and kitchen counter be over taken by pad kits for several days (and still is as we continue to make them) He’s a good man.
I am blessed to call you friends!
