Today is the start of something new I have been working on for quite a while now. I wanted to give back to the Baby Lost Community. This is a source of healing for me , working through my grief. I want to put a smile on a person's face that has lost a child. I myself have lost three children to miscarriage. In Feb ,2006 I lost a son Riley ~ 12 wks. In Dec, 2007 - I lost at eight wks. Then on April 29 , 2009 I gave birth to my Rainbow Baby ~ A daughter Carly. She has been such a joy to our lives. My most recent loss was Jan 6 ,2011 ~ 12 wks - 1 day.
I love to crosstitch and make things myself. So this is how I started and have made things for others in the past two years.
Two years ago I met a wonderful woman and who I'm proud to call my friend ~ Holly. We have never met IRL but I started following her journey Caring for Carleigh. I was so inspired by her that I wanted to make something special for her. That's how it all started. I learned through her journey and for the first time was able to open up about my losses.
I would now like to take requests for anyone that has lost a child.
I'm thankful for the blogs I have read and the new ones I come across. I wish so much I could stitch everyone's broken heart. That's why today I would like to stitch your child's name.
Here are a couple to show you what I make.
I'm going to take a picture of each one that I make and post them on this blog. I will not delete any of them.
If you would like to request one for your child or children , please email me at
Let me know your child's name and if you have a special color of thread you would like. If not I will just put a couple colors together. Please also include your address so I can mail it to you.
It depends on how busy I get but for the most part a two weeks or so to get them to you.
Right now I'm doing this all free , no charge. I want to give back to the Baby Loss Community
