Hands to work as it were… I have most of my family helping out now, my mom crochets the tiny bonnets, one per day. My youngest looms preemie and newborn caps and my grandson helps with the fabric coordination and packaging…
I’ll spend an entire week of cutting, that week end sewing, next week trimming and flipping the following weekend ironing and top stitching. This is about 2 weeks efforts. This weekend I have kids, no sewing… next week I start up sewing for newborns… it’s a vicious circle!

It saddens me to know that these will go to tiny babies who have died.  But I hope that they will atleast help the mommies say good bye to their little sweeties.

These will all go to God’s Tiny Angles and be passed out to assorted hospitals for their maternity wards.
