Adoption Update...POPPY DIP CONTEST!!

Our family of 7--waiting for number 8-- knowing and trusting the Lord for His perfect timing of bringing our new one home from Ethiopia......

Well ONWARD TO ETHIOPIA... to fill you in click on previous post .... We are again on the journey back to Ethiopia... back to the wild paper chase of the many documents for our dossier .... filing our immigration.... and then as many of you know... more waiting, waiting, and waiting. The Lord has His perfect plan and reasons why our path has had 'detours' ... He has chosen just the child to place in our family....

With that said... HOW ABOUT A CONTEST!!! Sewing POPPY DIP dresses is one way we are adding funds to our 'adoption fund'........ So beginning in May, I started sewing....and sewing... and sewing.... and sewing.... and have almost hit the 200th dress!! The Lord has provided abundantly!! A POPPY DIP dress order brings to our fund about 1/2 of the cost after paying for the notions/fabric....but regardless, I am thankful for the orders!!

YES-- I did say almost
200 dresses!!
Right now I have sewn 187 dresses... so here is the contest....

Whomever orders dress # 199 will get a second dress FREE!! --- of course your choice of size and fabric!! click on the pages up at the top for options ('home'- 'faq'-fabrics'....)
Start shopping for your little girl...for a friend... a baby gift... for a school uniform... and for FUN!!
