Soft

A pile of softness, originally uploaded by indiaeden.

I've made a start on some supplies for my local hospital's bereavement suite.
This stack of the softest flannel blankets is just the beginning, I hope.
There are five 22" square blankets and five 17" square blankets. Each one is two layers of the softest killington flannel with a sweet appliqued heart in the corner. I truly hope that these blankets give bereaved parents even a tiny bit of comfort in the darkest moments of their lives. I made each one with love.
pretty hearts

Don't be shy, say hello!

  1. Jeanette, those are sweet!
    Keep one for yourself - maybe you will be using it at some time in the future? ;-)
    Love,

  6. Well well, only now I realize how stupid my comment is - which is actually a language problem, not so much a problem of WHAT I wanted to say - I hope you understood as I intended to say...

  13. This entry made me cry - just the injustice that some parents have to go through this - life shouldn't be like that.
    The blankets and appliques are beautiful.

  21. Hi, I know this post is from some time ago, but I have to tell you that if I could meet anyone in the world, it would be the person who knit the tiny little hat for the son we lost to stillbirth. This is truely a gift you have created.
