Dresses to Guatemala

You just never know where you will meet someone that has a need for dresses.  I met Rachel on Facebook in a free cycle type group I belong to.  She shared that a friend, Suzy, was heading to an orphanage in Guatemala in December.  After we spoke for awhile I offered her dresses for the girls in the orphanage.  They range in age from 9 months to 14 years old.  Ladies you have shared a very special Christmas blessing with these girls!!  Yesterday Rachel picked the dresses up and they are beginning their journey to Guatemala.  Thank you sewers and thank you Rachel and Suzy for helping these precious little ones!!

Doll with a Shawl

I have not been posting because I have been on a road trip with my husband.  It was so much fun!!  One of the places we stopped was Pendleton, Oregon.  We had to tour the woolen mills.  While there I saw these bags…

They were full of the last row from the weaving of the blankets.  I just knew that I could find a use for one of these bags…especially at $1.88 per pound.

Well here is my first creation…

Every little doll can use a woolen shawl.

I think we need to have a doll making day ladies!!
