A Crafty Day

Of all of my posessions, this is one of my most cherished! It was nice to spend the day putting it to good use! The girls and I worked on sewing the little dolls we picked up from church. They are going to be distributed to orphans in Ethiopia.

I sewed their faces on and sewed their bodies together and then the girls stuffed them with stuffing.

Daisy had fun playing with the stuffing!

Lily had a beautiful idea (I am sure it was inspired by build a bear) to make little hearts to put in the dollies. We cut them out of felt and put one in each doll.

We said a prayer over them that they would bless the little girls who receive them and that they would know that Jesus loves them .

We gave them lots of hugs too!
