Friends, it's been a while

So, many of you all ready know that the Duke and I have recently suffered through a failed adoption. It has been one of the hardest things I have ever experienced. I lost my child. . .

Life goes on even if we don't move with it at first, eventually we are pulled along and reality forces us to keep moving.

Much of my knitting, as of late, had been for the birth parents of our baby. I don't have pictures fo the things I gave them, nor do I really have the desire to blog about those things I still have. They are tangible totems of my pain that I am not ready to share with the world.

I have been doing some other crafting though, and thought it would be a good place for me to start- some of you may remember from my pregnancy that things shaped like mushrooms make me very happy!

Pin cushions. You can either make them into a ring or just have them sit near your sewing and make you smile!

I will send one of these little adorables to the first person who can correctly recall (or look up) what the mushroom shaped object that made me happy during my pregnancy was.

Have Fun!
