This week a tiny little girl was born at 26 weeks,
her name is Esther and she weighs 940 grams.
She's doing really well for such a tiny tiny baby
but she has a long road to getting strong and coming home!
All week, when we knew that Esther seemed determined to arrive,
we had been praying that she would be kept safe,
what ever I was doing her family was on my mind.
I needed to do something, so I ferrited through my pile of to be quilted tops
and found this one. It's really really pretty.
Shenleigh quickly quilted it and the next morning
I got up at six o'clock and sewed on the binding.
(Side note: I can sew the binding down reasonably well by machine now!)
Some good friends delivered it that day to the hospital,
a visible symbol of all our love and prayers for them.
This is why I make quilts.
This is why I really need a machine that I can easily quilt
so that I can keep doing this (without having to pay)
If you would like to help with the fundraising
please pop over here and have a look.
Every little bit helps!
