Do you know about Dress a Girl Around the World? I've followed a blog called Sew Delightful for awhile now. This blog is about making and sending dresses to little girls in need, all over the world. When I read these post I always think how amazing it is that there are people so dedicated to make and send dresses to those who are less fortunate.
Last week on another blog (one of my favorites), The Vintage Sheet Blog, Dress a Girl Around the World was being talked about, and it got me thinking. As I read through these stories about those less fortunate, not jobless (like me), but children without parents, no food, abused, and abandoned, it makes me sad, but at the same time thankful for what I have.
I was let go from my job, of 6 years, about three weeks ago, and although yes that was very upsetting, and not a situation anyone wants to be in, I know I am still very lucky. I'm lucky because I'm healthy, as well as my children, and family, and I have a wonderful support group whom is also my family.

Anyways, I am a happy, AND proud maker of my first pillowcase dress. One that will be shipped out to a little girl in need. My two others dresses are planned to be done this week, and I'll ship out all three together.
