Last BH sewing for 2011

Finally I am able to post pictures. Blogger did not like the pictures from my phone. Not real sure what I did, but here are the last of the pictures for the BH kids.

 This doll and her clothing went to a luck girl.

 She went in this bag.

A new doll I found and made a few thing for her, for some luck girl.

 Here she is sporting her new outfit. Not quite a true 18 inch doll, she is a bit smaller.

 A size 5 skirt.

A size 4 boys top.

A size 5 girls top.

I also made 2 scarfs with pockets, but the pictues won't load.

A picture test

Stats of the Sew-n-Sewers

For some reason Blogger is not letting me post pictures here. Every time I try to post a picture it boots me out. Hopefully one of my sons (who are home from college) will help me figure this out. I have pictures of the rest of my sewing for the BH kiddos.

Any way here are the stats from my sewing group the Sew-n-Sewers.

2010 - with 13 members we made 879 garments
I personally made 47 garments for the BH kids

2011 - with 10 members we made 895 garments
I personally made 40 garments for the BH kids, 25 personal gifts,

So I am down 7 items for the BH kids from last year. Ugh! So my goal for 2012 is to make more. I am happy that the 25 personal items were gifts, so I guess I can say I sewed a total of 65 item in 2011. Not bad, but not good either.  I know I can make more, I don't have a good excuse as to why I did not sew more, I have the time and some fabric pieces and lots of patterns and some time. So next year is the year for sewing for the homeless starting tomorrow. I have 2 weeks off work so no excuses.

Hopefully I can post pictures soon.

Take Care,

Lets try again

A little embroidery that I drew up.
Very fuzzy Halloween pillow case, made two for a gift for twin boys.
Size 4 pants. I don't know what fabric, but it was a little thick.
Corduroy jumper, size 4.

Corduroy jumper, size 4.
Cotton print jumper, size 4.
Blogger has not let me post, so I am hoping this gets posted. The pictures are bad, I can't get my camera to work. Some of these photos are from my phone. I did do more sewing, but those pictures are on my phone and that will be for another day. I also need to do a count of how many pieces I have sewed for the BH children. More later.
Take Care,
