Friday Smile 7

So much to smile about today for Annie's (Wipso) Friday Smile. I returned last weekend from visiting the Beautiful Brighton Belles, (alias the curly girlies) and we had such fun. I'm usually miserable leaving them to return home but this time I'm SMILING because they are coming to visit us for the Easter Holidays.
Here they are in the fancy dress costumes I took down for them. They were so thrilled and excited getting my suitcase open and trying them out.
I made the skirt to DDs measurements but it's just as well I left a really big hem so the left one can soon be lengthened.
 I'm still SMILING because (as I posted on LillyBo blog) our gorgeous little Fraulein finished her treatment last week for leukaemia. Here she is after two long years of it, now aged three and a half, a beautiful happy little girl full of character and bright as a new button.
I'm also SMILING after delivering so many quilts to CHICS at the hospital oncology unit yesterday and seeing a little 3 year old boy receive his... pop over to LillyBo to read all about it and to see the quilts all made with love for children who are going through the same treatments as our little fraulein has just finished.
Why not join as a follower and see each quilt as it arrives? Even if you aren't stitching for LillyBo we'd love you to share what's happening. 
The Super Star Stitchers deserve every word of praise!
If you want to start your weekend with even more smiles then be sure to visit

Oh Jo, I can understand that you're smiling! You have all the reasons! I am so glad that little Fräulein's treatment is finished and that she is doing so well. The curly girls look so beautiful in their dresses - you made those? Fantastic! And what a beautiful quilt project - so much love is in there.
