Mission..."Dresses for Children in Need"
Note: click on photo to enlarge..You
will be able to see them better.
Emily [my granddaughter]is a senior
in high school. She had to do a project
for her honors program, the student is
to choose any type of program to start
up and over see and to have a passion
for. She chose to do for a children's home
in a town about 2 hours from her. She
said, these little girls had been through
so much and she wanted to give them a
new dress. She worked to find people
that would donate [sew a dress] for
I enjoyed this sewing project, not only
did it help me get my sewing mojo going
again, but... it felt good to sew for a
child who has been through so much.
I would like to thank Vickie from
http://www.vickieskitchenandgarden.com/2016/09/4-ways-to-use-up-leftover-ham-part-one.htmlfor being such a wonderful christian friend. She
saw on my previous blog post, that I had
mentioned sewing these dresses, she emailed me
and offered to sew a dress for Emily's Mission.
Thank you Vickie... Every person that sews,
ensures that Emily's vision for each girl to
get a new dress will happen.. thank you so much.
I would also like to thank my daughter in law,
Gina. She sews these pillowcase dresses for
Africa and Hatti, she has a real love for
this mission of hers. She works on it constantly.
She took time out of her busy schedule to sew some
dresses for Emily's mission. She wants Emily's
mission of every little girl to have a new dress , to happen. Thank you Gina. Emily loves you and appreciates you.
Hope you all have a blessed week.. Will post my
fall decorating soon.

| My new Cake Plate..|
Remember when , I posted that I wanted a glass
dome cake plate.. I found one on Martha Stewart's
web sight. It was scalloped [like this one] and had
a clear glass dome.. Well...... Her cake plate,
was ceramic, and very beautiful, but it also had
a hefty price tag.. I kept looking at thrift stores,
but never found one.. I was at Hobby Lobby last
week.. I found this pretty cake plate.. [It does not
have a ceramic base, it is metal] . However, the
price tag was wonderful.. It was $44.95 and
had a 50% off sale.. So my cakeplate
was only $22.50
Read here , about my cake plate wanted plate post.
|Fall is in the air.. Here is a hint of some fall|
decor going on at my house.. Will post soon.
Also... I finished the little dresses for Emily's
mission for needed children in USA.. Just
need to get some photos.
