The postman has just called....

My postman has just called with two amazing parcels from a very special lady.  Most of you will know Tricia from Tricias Confetti and my parcels are from her today.  I have filled my ironing board to overflowing with all she has sent us.  It includes.
  • 14 Pillow cases
  • 2 Double quilt covers and
  • 3 Double sheets
to be used for the little dresses we are making for the Dress a girl around the world scheme.  It is such a truly generous donation and we will make big efforts to get little dresses cut out and made as soon as we can....life just seems to have got in the way for me lately but I promise it will all get used in time.

What gorgeous bright colours too.  Thanks so much Tricia.
Also as promised here is a quick snap of the 5 little dresses that I managed to make on Wednesday

Numbers 81,82,83,84 and 85

The lighting was poor this morning but you will probably notice I am certainly in the pink  :-)

Yesterday was spent filling my 'to do' rail with work while I had special 'Nanny Annie time' with M and her gorgeous twinnies so today is a catch up Friday to clear my sewing mountain.  Hope you all have a great weekend.

Hope you manage to plough your way thro your to do rail as quickly and easily as possible so you have time to chill a bit today. Hectic weekend for you too!!!

How gorgeous. I see lots of duvet covers / sheets in the Charity shop where I work & think of all what Blogger friends make. But I can't buy & send it and they do sell well. Good to see what can be made - lovely x
