Dress a Girl Around The World Sewing Day

 We met at church today and made dresses for a program called Dress a Girl Around the World.  Most of the dresses were made by Ruby and Kay before today, I only got two made today.  I brought two more home to work on, this will be a continuing project for our Shining Light ministry at church.
We made a total of fifty-seven dresses to send!
 I had a chance to pull out my serger and put it to work.  I really like my serger.

 This was my work station, I had my serger and my sewing machine set up next to each other.
 Miss Norma spent the day sewing all of those labels on the dresses.  The labels on the dresses help to keep predators away from the young girls by giving them an organization they belong to.
Miss Ruby cut out many dresses for us to sew on today.  She has been sewing for a long time.
 She shared this special seam ripper with me.  She got it when she took her first sewing class in 1959.  It is a light weight aluminum type of seam ripper.
 Her husband made this thread holder for her.  I need to get my husband to make one for me!
 She also brought this neat tube turner set with her.  It had many different sizes.
 I also have to show you her pin cushion that looks like a chair, it is made out of a tuna can.
We had a pretty productive day of sewing, it was a lot fun!
