Whew completed a few things this weekend! Finished 8 large sized (32 week gestation) BOY sets of Teeny Tears diapers http://teenytears.blogspot.com/ with wee blankets, one cap with a coordinating ribbon and a tiny crocheted bonnet my mom made http://job121.wordpress.com/2013/10/08/angel-baby-bonnet-crochet-pattern-for-stillborn-babies . Super adorable! I have each set bagged up and waiting for a hospital to adopt! July 27th 2014
8 large (32 week gestation) GIRL set of Teeny Tears diapers http://teenytears.blogspot.com/ with wee blankets, one cap with coordinating ribbon and a tiny crocheted bonnet my mom made http://job121.wordpress.com/2013/10/08/angel-baby-bonnet-crochet-pattern-for-stillborn-babies/ . Each so dainty and feminine, each set is bagged and waiting for a hospital to adopt. July 27th 2014
Heaping pile of WIP: tinier blankets that will have matching small (18 week gestation) sized diapers, Burp Cloths and bibs awaiting their matching receiving blankets, Owl/Cat tag rattles that will go with the burp/bib/blanket sets waiting for the stuffing, rattles and stitching…and last but not least not a WIP…a finished preemie blanket made of cotton and Minky blanket with Minky…too fuzzy! July 28th 2014
3 wee newborn hankie bonnets… I think the 2 tiny ones on the right may be preemie or angel sized since they are SO small. Now that I’ve found Restore powder I have even more bonnets in process since I managed to get all the antique hankies clean! Alright not all, one is just not attractive at all, no idea why it went from old dingy to grey dingy… bleck! That one will be put back into the eventual hankie quilt box. July 28th 2014
Very productive 5 day staycation!
Angels sets…whew! I finished all I had cut out and started. The teeny diapers are via Teeny Tears:http://teenytears.blogspot.com/ .The no sew caps are via: http://angeloutfitters.blogspot.com/2012/10/no-sew-hats.html and the 12 inch lovies are thrown in so the wee angels can be snuggled. I worked on these over three days between other projects and celebrations. Haven’t decided where these will go yet…perhaps a hospital through Teeny Tears and any left over will go to God’s Tiny Angels in West Virginia. December 26th, 27th & 28th 2013
Burp cloths via: http://www.trishscrafts.com/receiving_blanket.html the bug ones will be shipped to God’s Tiny Angels with the next shipment, the Christmas / winter ones will be saved for the Christmas in July for God’s Tiny Angels… Already getting a jump on 2014! December 27th 2013
The last 2 cheater quilts that joined 26 other newborn blankets, lovies and quilts for the newborn blanket drive for God’s Tiny Angels in West Virginia. December 26th 2013

Angel Buntings for angels too tiny and fragile for clothing. I made 4 smalls (on the right) and 6 larges (on the left) the pattern for these can be found at Angel Outfitters http://angeloutfitters.blogspot.com/. I’m patiently waiting for my white stockinette to arrive so I can make the ultra tiny caps to go with these. Once assembled these will be sent to Sanford Bemidji Medical Center, OB Department/PETAL Program. December 15th 2013
Boy Burp Cloths cuz’ Burps happen… I’ve made 16 sets of boy burp cloths, half will go to God’s Tiny Angels in West Virginia after the 1st of the new year. The other half will go to the young mommies of Wright County MN. December 15th 2013

Cheater quilts patiently waiting for some top stitching. I’m thinking the lovely flowered one will go to a sweet little toddler I know for Christmas. The other 2 will be joining about 22 other blankets/quilts for the blanket drive for God’s Tiny Angels. December 8th 2013
Flannel and cotton waiting some serious ironing and slicing up…Receiving blankets, teeny diapers, angel wraps, perhaps newborn snap gowns and buntings will be just flying out of this pile bound for God’s Tine Angels, Teeny Tears, Angel Outfitters and perhaps a few will go to the teen mommies here in Minnesota…just need the time and energy!

Thank you card I received from a hospital here in Minnesota that I sent a batch of Teeny Tears diapers to. I dare say it’s nice to hear occasionally that what I’ve done helps people!
About 40 + burp cloths ready to sew…figure half will go to God’s Tiny Angels and I hope I can send the other half to Wright County for the young mommies.
I noticed I cut too many girlie ones so cut out another pile of only boy shades… November 23-24 2013
Super cute preemie day gown opened up to show the cute beastie fabric. Got this pattern from:http://www.miraclebabies.org.au/get-involved/knitting-and-sewing/
3 preemie gowns totally done so far. I might look into purchasing a snap setter…
For some reason the large version prints right off the page so this one is ‘small’ I also cut out 4 ‘medium’ we shall see how big they turn out. I could get 2 smalls with coordinating fabrics out of 2 fat quarters with a nice sized chunk of left overs to put into the eventual flannel sweetie quilt. I made mine out of flannel since I’m sewing in the mighty north! November 24th 2013
Actually got a few things accomplished this weekend…cha I’m shocked too!

in celebration of my soon to be granddaughter (yeah I’m going to be getting a granddaughter in November) and her very healthy heart (whew what a relief, no heart defect in this sweet baby) Tabitha’s naming her Olivia Grace (after my mom…mom still doesn’t know the babies name, Tab wants to surprise her) So Oliver will have a little sister…he’s still not too sure about all of this…he loves babies though so I think he’ll be just fine…OK onto what I made…
Last night I cut out 47 burp cloths out of fabulous fun flannel
yup forty-seven of them…lets say I was on a roll! 4 for Tab to pick out for her house, 4 for me to have at my house since Olivia will be coming home at night with Oliver when Tab’s at work…a few to try to sell, 2 for the trick-or treat bags for my wedding for the newborn and soon to be born girls…the rest will be sent to God’s Tiny Angels in West Virginia http://danettesangels.tripod.com
