Firecracker Dress Drive...

Brynwood Needleworks - Dressed In Joy - Marcy's Dresses and Dollies

It's almost time to deliver the dresses and dollies for the Firecracker Dress Drive!

Brynwood Needleworks - Dressed In Joy - Marcy's Dresses

All of these gorgeous dresses have been sorted and packaged for their upcoming trip to Orlando.

Brynwood Needleworks - Dressed In Joy - Sherry's Dresses

They're all so wonderful, and I know every one of them will be loved and appreciated. As I sort through them, I frequently hold them up for Handsome to see. He asked me to convey - on his behalf - how impressed he is with the sheer variety and creativity that goes into each one.

Dressed In Joy - Danice's Dresses

After our last drive, the Clermont group decided to break away from our original group. They're close enough to the Orlando ambassador and work group - and one of their members frequently travels between the two groups - so they now deliver the dresses they create on a weekly or monthly basis. 
We wish them all the best as they continue their efforts for the Dress A Girl Around The World organization. 
Brynwood Needleworks - Dressed In Joy - Pat's Dresses
With that (and summer vacations) in mind, I set our goal for this drive at 100 dresses, and we're close to meeting that goal. There's still time if you'd like to contribute a dress or two. I'll be making my own dresses in the next few days.

Thank so much to Marcy, Sherry, Danice, and Pat for the dresses we've already accumulated. Marcy, your doll faces make me giggle as I packaged them with their matching dresses. I'm always impressed with your time management and ability to create so many dresses. Ladies, again, I'm grateful beyond words. Thanks, and thanks again.

I'm planning to deliver them to Orlando in about a week. If you're interested in making a dress (with or without a doll), please let me know so that I can plan to include it in this delivery.
