STITCH ME UP
NOW I LAY ME DOWN TO SLEEP
One of my favorite projects is quilting, sewing, and stitching items for our local hospital NICU, and the local NILMDTS Photographers to use in their bereavement photography.
For many parents, these items will be the only and final memento of their lost child.
As I stitch, I like to think I'm stitching prayers of strength, compassion, and HOPE into each stitch.
I used Presencia #16 Thread
I'm starting to get the hang of French Knots...thanks to You-Tube videos
In both outline stitches I used a "split stitch" double row technique.
The blanket in the photo is 1 of 4 NILMDTS Blankets with this flower pattern in one corner.
Blankets used to photograph these precious Angel Babies need to be Simple & Elegant.
What a Blessing and Honor to know that my embroidered blankets will grace the precious body of an Angel Baby as it lays in it's Mother's arms for the last time. I've mentioned the NILMDTS organization in an earlier post but I hope this post will be yet another reminder of the many ways your hand stitched items can offer comfort to a family through NILMDTS or other charitable organizations.
LOOK around and Pay It Forward.
