Just keep stitching, just keep stitching....

I have been working away at the blankets and hats and such. Nothing new to share in the pic department. The Jillian-inspired blanket is about halfway done and I expect to finish it in another week along with a matching hat.

Mainly, I just wanted to remind any who care to to please be in prayer for the little girl the blanket and hat are intended for along with her family. They need it so.

Once I have finished the blanket/hat, I plan on sharing a little about the family. So again, if you feel led, please pray for them.

I have this picture on Noah's blog but thought I would post it again here so you can get an idea of what the hats look like.

I have several very cute patterns that are rather "holey" so I'm not sure if I should make those or stick to the kind that have a more closed pattern. Let me know what you think. My thought was if the babies had a dressing on their head anyway that the "holes" won't matter as much but, at the same time, I'm not sure anyone wants it showing through either. A closed pattern keeps everything "under" the hat. I don't tell me what you think.....

I hope you enjoy them!


This is done in an antique white or like off white color. I haven't done much on it simply because I have been working on the blanket below.

This is the blanket that was inspired by Jodi and her daughter Jillian. I think the colors are just fabulous and perfect for a little girl!

This was my first one I created. It is not quite done as I need to go to Hobby Lobby to get some more yarn to finish it off.....but it is ALMOST completed!

Here they all are together.....kind of a hodge podge of completeness.....But it works for me! Keeps my hands and mind busy!

Getting this thing going

So I decided to create a blog specifically for the ministry of the blankets and hats that I want to create and give out in honor of my special boy Noah.

For those of you who don't know our story, please click here to read from the beginning.

Anyway, I have already started a few projects and have made quite a few hats. The blankets take me a little longer which is why they aren't quite finished yet.

I was thinking of making matching hats and blankets as keepsakes for anyone who might be going through something like what we have been through with Noah. I can say without a doubt that Noah's blanket and hat are two of my most treasured keepsakes of his. They were the two things that he was wrapped up in and that stayed with him during his entire 19 hours alive.

If you are interested in getting a hat/blanket, please feel free to leave a comment or email me. I would need to know if you are having a boy or girl and also what colors you wish to have. I only have a select few colors at the moment - mostly baby pastels. But I can do just about any color combination you like.

I can't wait to start getting requests! This is something that makes my heart just a little lighter by knowing that I will be helping another person along their journey and that I will be doing it in my son's honor.
