Izzy, Sam and I went round to my friends Laura's house to do ours together. As well as buying things for the box, I also asked the children to choose some of their own unused toys to send.

Another 9 gorgeous dresses arrived today for the Pillowcase dress appeal. All little ones which is perfect as I have just found someone visiting a nursery school in India in the New Year so they will be just right! They are both slightly different versions of the the pillowcase dress too which I love.
The first two were from the Domestic Goddesque who has a lovely blog which you can find here. These two dresses were a lovely dark pink.
This one with a pretty ruffle
and this one with a pretty flower trim
The elastic in these dresses runs around the neck line so there are no ties. I am learning so much from receiving all the different dresses.
I also received a lovely parcel of seven dresses from Pat who used a vintage pattern for her pretty dresses. This pattern hasn't been used for around 30 years until now!
The dress were lovely. The fabric was a mix of cream, blue and gold patterns and the dresses all had pretty handmade ties. So sweet!
All beautifully made - another great design to try out.
and did I mention Pat sent seven dresses!!
Huge thanks to both of you. This takes the total to 436 dresses! Also more exciting news from Alison of Peggys Pickles. She has arranged a pillowcase dress decorating party at Drink, Shop and Do in London on 6 December from 6.30pm so if you are in London pop in and say hi!
I also won a fab giveaway this week on the lovely My Love Bumps blog. How exciting. Pop over and say hi! My prize was a gorgeous purse and brooch made by the very talented Pants and Paper. They are absolutely gorgeous.
Another lovely week!
