Clarification

Wait wait wait wait wait. I have to make a smocking clarification. The stillborn dresses? I have a couple made, but that's not what's pictured in the last post. And I don't yet have a place to bring them. Am currently playing phone tag with Labor and Delivery of the hospital I work for. It's something I want to do. So while I appreciate your warm fuzzies, it's just not something that's gotten off the ground. Yet.

For those of you who knit and crochet, there are several good sites out there with patterns online specifically for the teeny babies. Those that are born alive, as well, to go home in. Check out this one and this one. And if you Google a little, you may even find a group in your neck of the woods. I just haven't found one here yet. May have to start one. There's even a group which uses formals to create beautiful gowns.

Here's a shot, to give you an idea of the size, of one I've been slowly workin
g on:



So little. So easy to do. I hope one or more of you take a look at the patterns and decide it's something you'd like to do as well.

Until I write again ...

Beautiful! I have to say, though, that when I read about you making those dresses... a get a lump in my throat and my face squinches up and I hold my breath. I think it is a wonderful thing to do and I am sure it will really touch the moms who receive them. To reach out in that way to someone in what has to be their worst moment is something I really admire about you. God Bless you always.

Oh, my. So teensy. I know that some mommy will really appreciate that Flea. I know I sure appreciated and was shocked that my hospital had teesy little clothes for my teensy baby. What a ministry from some lovely, selfless ladies. I can't believe you are having trouble giving them away! Hope the hospital gets back to you soon.

They are so tiny. I almost cried when I read what they are for. I can't imagine the losing a baby but I am sure your little dresses help a least a little.

This is really beautiful. I can only imagine that receiving such marvelous creations would be extremely helpful to those who are going through the grieving process. Bless you for thinking of it and doing it.
