Sewing Marathon for the weekend ending 30-Apr-2017

I finished 5 dresses this weekend. Two of them I made last Saturday, 29-Apr-2017 -
and 3 I completed today. 
But it looks like the cabinet I have with fabrics from my personal collection has not moved at all inspite of the 31 dresses I have been sewing so far. I need to do something about this in the next few weeks as I need back the space occupied by fabrics.

Feedback Dress Distribution #108 - Vietnam

Today I received this letter from the Christina Noble's Children Foundation of Ho Chi Minh Vietnam acknowledging the dresses I took and gave to them when I visited Ho Chi Minh early this month. 
Also received a couple of pictures taken when the dresses were given to the kids.

Visiting the foundation was a very great and memorable experience for me especially that we were able to spend some time with the children they were taking care of from babies to about 6 year olds. The kids loved it when you played and gave them hugs. It was an experience to treasure and a real great treat for the soul. My heartfelt thanks to the foundation for accommodating us very well during the visit.

Keeping on Sewing for 2017 Marathon

This weekend I made 4 dresses for my Keep on Sewing 2017 Marathon...and more to come. I really need to step up on this marathon so I could clear at least one side of my cabinet that is full of fabrics.

Vietnam visit - 5-Apr-2017

Handed over the 25 dresses I handcarried for the kids at the foundation, donated some money and experienced a well-spent two hours hugging and playing with babies and toddlers at the foundation. A great food for the soul and great experience to cherish forever. Thank you to Piers Birtwistle, Public Relations Vietnam of Christina Noble Children's Foundation - Vietnam for the time he spent taking us around the ophanage. Much appreciated.
