Here are the items I sent to God’s Tiny Angels this month.
This is what I call my “fan” quilt. This was originally one of my UFO’s. I started out a long time ago making long strips of the pieces you see around the edges, with the intentions of making a queen sized quilt. Yup, that never happened.
I ended up salvaging that work by cutting the long strip down into smaller strips so I could use it for edging around the center “fan” piece.
Here is a close up of the fan piece in the center. By the time I salvaged my UFO, I ended up with a pretty little preemie size quilt.
The colors on this preemie quilt didn’t photograph well, but it’s actually more of a light lavender, darker lavender, and purple little flowers with white squares for fillers.
My third blanket is a crocheted rectangular granny square. I would say it’s probably big enough for a smaller newborn.
Just a cute little dress with a ruffled bottom and a matching hat.
A little diaper shirt made from multi colored brighter pastel yarn.
A newborn sweater and hat made from lavender “I Love This Yarn”.
I had just enough of the lavender yarn to make a newborn hat. One of our hospitals was asking for purple hats for the babies to wear for awareness of shaken baby syndrome.
During one of my frequent jaunts to Goodwill, I found this pretty little magenta colored hoodie in a size 0-3 months. Doesn’t look like it was ever worn. Really hard to get a good picture of it.
Another crocheted newborn sweater made of multi colored yarn in purples, blues and greens.
This newborn sweater has a cute bottom ruffle and ties instead of buttoning. I’m pretty sure it was made out of Red Heart Super saver yarn because it seems to be heavier and a bit scratchy. Not sure I would use this yarn again.
I didn’t have enough of the darker pink for all of this newborn sweater so I finished up by making the sleeves a lighter pink.
Last but not least are 3 little burial outfits for the littlest of our angels. The need is great for these outfits unfortunately. I am not very fast at crocheting blankets so I usually just make the dresses and hats or bonnets with the hope that the parents can find a nice blanket to go with them.
I’m sorry I didn’t post what yarn I used on most of these items. There are a number of reasons for that. Usually by the time I make my blog post for my donations, I frequently forget which yarn I used. Also, I buy a lot of my yarn from Goodwill or some of the local thrift stores, and some of them don’t have a label on them, so I have NO idea what brand, etc. it is. Same thing with yarn I buy at yard sales or have given to me. Can’t be choosey when it’s free or cheap you know :)
That’s it for this time. I keep plugging along, as long as the carpal tunnel doesn’t flare up :)
