Belly Cast and Little Dresses

Last Friday evening, Dell came over and we made a belly cast of her very pregnant, beautifully round belly. It was simple to do and is such a precious keepsake.

In other news from last week, I received two more dresses for Little Dresses for Africa, made by a friend of a friend.

In sum, we made/collected a total of 13 dresses and also sent 4 pillowcases, 5 spools of ribbon, and a package of bias tape to Little Dresses of Africa. I mailed everything today. It felt so wonderful to get that box filled with hand-sewn goodness off to them. I know the dresses will be well-loved. Thank you to all who participated!
