Stars and Dresses

Just in time for today's Stars in a Time Warp. 
 The fabric is a bit washed out in the photo but I was going for the dun color in the light. Faded synthetic dyes was last weeks. Looks like trailing vines too!
 Adorable dresses in a row.....
    Thank you Synthia, Carline, Martha.......
Betsy and Joan! The dresses are amazing and will make some little girls happy. Thank You from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you to those who have sent money as well. It is all going to help the poor of the poor! Please don't feel any pressure to send money when you send dresses though.

I've been under tremendous stresses with my mom's situation. Hospice was a nightmare and after 6 weeks of ineptitude I was able to change to a different hospice. I leave for France and the European Patchwork in Alsace in 17 days and didn't want to be fretting and worrying about her care the whole time. I still may worry a bit but not as much. Thank you all for your kind and encouraging words.

Happy Wednesday!
