dresses for the little ladies

Dolls sold very well for me at the Deerfield Show, and I'm trying to build up my inventory again.... I found some perfect vintage fabric for the Deerfield dolls, and have used up the last of it on these little ladies.   And again I was lucky to have found some more in my travels last week.   Today I hope to get some of them dressed.   I find that to be the tedious part.... well, the picking of fabrics is what slows me down.  This weekend will be warmer and I will age them and finish at least some of them.   
 
 
Matt's brother is very ill, and we will be traveling to Florida much sooner than we had expected.  He is in hospice, with stage IV pancreatic and liver cancer.  This was discovered just a few short weeks ago, and was their conversation on Matt's birthday.   I have a hole in my heart for my hubby especially.... this was devastating news and it's weighing heavily on both of us.   I am trying to create little moments of peacefulness each day.   It's all I know how to do, besides pray for the family... they have suffered far too many losses. 
In the meantime we are thankful to be next door to my mother, because she needs constant attention.  I think she will be much better when she can get out in her gardens again!
