Charity Spin Off - Here's my most recent works *Pic Heavy

For the past month I've been crocheting my fingers off to  make tiny hats for miscarriage and stillborn survivors that are grieving for their loss. I closed down my hat store (even though it was finally doing so well!) so that I could focus on charity work in honor of my angel. It's been SO helpful for me to do this after my own loss last month, each hat made me feel a little more on solid, steady ground. 

Anyway, I finished my goal last week and sent them out. I made 50 hats, and I had two friends who pitched in and made an extra 20, so Calvin's Hats received 70 hats in Elizabeth Rose's memory!

Here's pictures of some of the hats:

Aww, I'm glad you have a friend you can talk to about it! I have my husband and mom...most everyone else already moved on and ignore anything I say about her. I have her candle lit now though, I never knew how comforting a candle could be until this happened!

I'm really blessed. I have a really great support system, even after all these years.

I never lit a candle, but every march--when the daffodils come up, I think of him...The day we lost him i remember leaving the hospital and on the drive home we were stopped, I looked over and there were several really pretty, bright daffodils. IDK why it seemed so significant to me, but it was. Now I buy some every year and toss one onto the water at the park where we went the day we lost him.

It DOES get better...but the hurt and sadness never completely goes away. if you ever want to talk, feel free to PM me. ((hugs))

That's lovely! So far I don't have anything significant of her, but I have a little burial site we did on my mother's farm, which is so helpful to be able to go and visit each week. Once a month I take something I make for her and bring it there, right now she has the kneeling angel that's pictured above in one of the pics, and we're taking the large angel that's holding the one tiny hat and putting it at her spot on Easter. Little things really help, just like making these hats. They offered so much healing, to keep my hands busy and have something to do that was good and could be done in her memory and name. (The yellow paper with the poem on it was what I sent in with the hats so that they'd know they were all dedicated to her).
