I'm here...



...here in my nest. After the last post, about crocheting to keep my hands busy, I just kept on going...



For days that's all I did. I just sat here in my nest and followed the patterns in this book (ISBN 4-391-62017-0). I didn't stray from the patterns at all like I usually tend to do...I didn't want to think about it that much...I just wanted something to do to ease the pain.


So here I sit, 11 doilies, 2 four leaf clovers, a basket liner, and two pin cushions later.... and feeling just a little bit better.

I've been so depressed and discouraged this week, but I feel myself slowly moving out of it....one stitch at a time...


Eventually I did make these pin cushions by just using the center of the doily pattern, not much imagination needed there, but it is an improvement. I hope I will be back to my old self soon, with more good days than bad days, until then I'll be here in my nest....stitching, praying, healing, and holding my sweet babies.

I almost didn't comment, becuase I don't have anything amazing to say, but hugs and prayers, mama. I'm wanting a baby too and I feel a wee bit of your pain.

Samantha, I'm so incredibly sorry for the pain that you and your whole family are going through right now. I pray that the Lord's hand will be with you during this time to hold and comfort you.

Dearest Samantha,
I've been thinking about you from here on the other side of the world. I think your crocheting is just beautiful and I pray that it helps in some small way.
Take care and God bless you and hold you in the palm of his hand during this time.
Melissa.

Continuing to pray for you and mourn with you, Samantha. There is nothing quite like the loss of a child, even when we know they are in the hands of Jesus. May His comfort be yours during this time.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord
Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of
all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction,
so that we may be able to comfort those
who are in any affliction, with the comfort
with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

2 Corinthians 1:3,4

Thinking of you!
