Emily Dickinson poem "Not in Vain" has always spoke to me.
(1886) by Emily Dickinson If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain: If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain, Or help one fainting robin Unto his nest again, I shall not live in vain.
I think of it when I make and pray over these items for the hospital nursery. These item are for the precious little ones that go to heaven way to soon.
I do like making the gowns, hoping that it will ease the pain a little, Just to know that someone, somewhere cares.
Request from the hospital, also needed are items for babies to fragile to handle.
so I made a few of those.
The size of the blankets range from 6" to 10". I will make a few larger blankets..
I hope these bring some comfort to the broken hearts. Just making them helps my heart heal.
