Pretty dresses for Pretty girls

Hi there , while "browsing " blogland during the week I came across this......Dresses for little girls @ sew scrumptious! I was so taken by this project, & by the commitment of Louise the lady behind this, I thought what an absolutely beautiful idea. You see I've been on missions trips to Zambia & India and i've seen the poverty & how people have to live, I thank God every day for what i have been given, but I have no doubt that He would want those of us that can help & can give, to do so.
So those lovely fabrics i got last week are being turned into little dresses to send to Louise for her fantastic project. I've done three so far, want a peek..............................


This is my favourite so far...............................


I can see some pretty little girls wearing these & it makes me smile, well done louise :)

Yesterday i decided to try my hand at flower photographs again,  I guess i was getting Big ideas about my 'abilities'  :( as an ARTISTIC PHOTOGRAPHER hah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This was the result........................................


Great snap eh! Blurry, totally out of focus, bad photo, could have taken a better one with a mobile!  But after looking at it for a while i kinda thought ..... its almost like a watercolour, what do you think?????  Is it just me,  am i seeing this right!!!!
Anyway I'm going to try and paint it, make a real watercolour from it, I love to paint... so hopefully i can show you some attempts later in the week.  Funny the things that inspire us isn't it! I think i see so much around me every day that makes me smile & makes me want to create!  What a joy !

Anyhooo my hubby's just put on a movie, so i'm going to join him. Its a bit of an oldie " Dirty rotten scroundrels " really, really funny!!! If you haven't seen it i doooo recommend.
A coffee  & a piece of this will very much be enjoyed with my feet up.......


Found the recipe here....Life's rich pattern.......Oh my goodness this is one of the nicest, yummiest cakes i've ever tasted & that was seconded by some friends who had a slice earlier in the week ( though it pained me to give some away ) wow!!!  that sums it up, you have to try it! Its an almond cake for those who like nuts :).

Soooo have a very lovely evening & weekend
Thanks for dropping by
Lots of love Karen Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

As usual, I come to have a 'quick look' at your post and am here ages! Love those dresses so am off to follow up that link. Then i'll have to check out the cake recipe- it looks yum.
Btw, I love that photo. Very like the impressionists. Maybe you are a Monet of the photography world!

I couldn't resist a peek! They are gorgeous!! So pretty. Thanks so much for the mention too. I made another dress today and also one for my daughter. I'm a bit addicted now! Thanks again. Louise x

Gorgeous little dresses Karen. They will surely be worn with absolute delight by a little girl with very little.
I adore your photo. Although your photo may not have turned out how your had hoped, you have a very beautiful image and as Annaboo said, "very like the impressionists" and I was thinking of a Monet style photo too. A water colour would be gorgeous. I paint in oils, so I understand how enjoyable it is to paint.
Mmmm, that cake does look yummy. I have some birthday cake to finish off before I make anything else. Photos to follow on my blog when I've recovered. :)
Have a lovely day,
Anne xx

Those dresses are so pretty - I really love the fabrics used for the trims!

I think your photo looks dreamy and magical!

I love the film 'Dirty Rotten Scoundrels' - I remember the first time I saw it with my family when I was a kid - we all in fits of laughter, and enjoyed it so much - it's a really happy memory! :o)
