I have written here before about Wee Care and how near and dear to my heart it is. One of the highlights at SAGA covention every year is the Wee Care Trunk Show as well as the collecting of Wee Care gowns from chapters and members from all over the country.
Each year at convention members/chapters bring or send gowns. blankets and bonnets to be collected at that convention and donated to a local hospital in the town where the convention is held. I believe this year that the 1100, (yes you read that right, ELEVEN HUNDRED) items collected were donated to the NICU units at Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters and Portsmouth Naval Hospital. 1100 items. That is remarkable. Stitchers have the biggest hearts.

The little gown above really caught my eye. I just love its sweetness. It is reminiscent of Sarah Howard Stone's "Babette" pattern. In a teeny tiny version.
The precious contrasting ruffle, trimmed with ecru laces and finished off with three sweet teeny bullion roses. It looks to be made from Swiss batiste. Only the finest for these precious angels.
