"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Stitching Post Saturday

Its been a while since I posted any of my cross stitching. While I haven't finished any major projects, I have finished a lot of small things. I am participating in a Name/Welcome RR and I've stitched letters on a few of those...

I stitched the S and the musical notes on this one.


I stitched the N on this one.


I have also been crocheting preemie sized baby hats for The Preemie Present project run by Lady Nunn of The Flying Nunns. I have finished 10 for her to use in next years present bags...3 extra large, 3 large, 1 medium, 1 small, and 2 extra small (they fit the micro preemies). To give you an idea as to the size, I took a picture of my fist next to an apple and an orange. Then I took a picture with an xs hat on the apple and a hat on the orange. If you click on these pictures you can see a larger version of them.

My son was born a month early.

While my daughter was in the nursery with him, she said a lady came in and put a knitted hat on my son.

It really touched my heart because she said this woman was in there giving all the babies hats!

What a blessing.

Wow, you are so talented and creative. The size of the itty bitty hats is so humbling. Thank you for putting love into your handiwork.

Where do you find the time? I have a crocheted afghan that has been sitting in my closet for 9 months...
