~Shannon~ contacted me ...

" I am an adoptive mama (2 girls from China). We just came home with our Georgia Mei in August and she had open heart surgery almost immediately. The Lord has made it clear that we are done adopting for awhile but that advocating for orphans and adoptive families is His plan for us....
...My hope is that this blog give-away will glorify God and bring more people to support, pray and give to your adoption. "

Isn't God GOOD!!
Thank you Shannon!!

So her Mom asked if I could find more fabric with OWLS... 'On A Whim Owls in Aqua' suited her just fine!!

If you ever are looking for something specific for a special little girl or a gift... just ask and I'll be happy to help look !!

I'm really behind... BUT I have been sewing like a mad woman!! and have lots of ready made skirts to sell at sale price to you...

SO... let's have a 1st 'business' day of SPRING sale on Monday!!

for 'ready-made' TWIRLS I'll offer some in different lengths
... all you need to know is her length/waist... so measure your little girl today!! (from waist to knee or where you like the hem to hit for length) (and around her waist) then you supply her waist measurement and I'll put in the custom size of elastic to fit her just right.
Let Iris do the honor of modeling her feeling groovy POPPY DIP TWIRL!!
