Size 1 dresses


2 of these dresses are our great granddaughter. The other four will go somewhere in the world to little needy girls. It is fun to make these cute things for such a purpose. I try to imagine how cute they will be and happy to have such a nice little dress. so glad that I could contribute a little to someone's happiness.

Preemie Twins


It has been a privilege of mine to hold a couple of darling preemie twins each day that there mother can't make it
the 2 1/2 hour drive to the hospital so that translates to about 4 or five days a week when I and my granddaughter (21) can go and hold them for one to two hours. They were only 8 inches long when they were born and weighed 1.5 lbs. It has been about 3 1/2 months and they are now about 4 lbs 10 oz and 3lb. 11 oz. Yesterday was their first time out of the isolete. It is pretty amazing how much better they do when they are being held regularly. We just hope and pray that they will continue to progress so they can go home as healthy normal babies before too long.

Hats off the a wonderful loving family who are so willing to adopt these babies from the beginning in spite of all the unknowns.

Dresses for orphanages

Posted by Picasa
I have been busy making little girl's dresses for orphanges in Ethiopia and humanitarian services. It has been a very rewarding experience. Friends have also donated a lot of fabric so I will be able to do it for quite a while. I plan to keep doing it for a very long time. I will keep adding to the fabric stash. There is something about helping those who cannot help themselves.
