Recently my heart was touched by a lady named Kathy Silverton. Read her story on this link.
When Kathy’s heart was touched by another she founded Stitches From the Heart, a nonprofit organization devoted to creating and sending handmade clothes for premature babies and babies from impoverished families. Every item is created with tender loving care and volunteers sometimes attach their names to the items. We at “The Daily Lily” would like to add our names to worthy cause.
Kathy and her volunteers happily teach people how to knit little clothes for “preemies”. The head of a full-term baby is approximately the size of a grapefruit. But a premature baby’s head is smaller – the size of an orange, or even a lemon. Stitches volunteers knit these tiny hats and also tiny booties, sweaters and blankets.
I have started crocheting and making some of these tiny little hats and booties. (see picture) I would like to invite others of The Daily Lily to join me in making some items for these babies. If you would like to crochet, knit or sew, hats, booties, sweaters, or blankets to add to “The Daily Lily’s” contribution for the babies let us know.
