This is what David was buried in. The lady who knitted it had a photo she emailed to me, and I am very thankful to her for it!
The very beautiful story that goes with it (as told by the lady who knitted it) is as follows:
“The cream pouch was the smallest of the ones I have made because I only had a small amount of the yarn. I was sent a sample of 100% spun silk from “Sarah’s yarns”. I thought it was one of the softest and loveliest fibers I have worked with. I could not think of anything softer to put against a tiny baby’s fragile skin and it seemed that if a mother was only going to be able to wrap her baby up one time, it should be in one of the softest and most luxurious fibers God makes and I could not think of a more deserving project that for a child living in heaven. So I made the pouch with every bit of the silk yarn I had, and that is the size it came to. I guess God knew just how much silk I would need.”
Blessed be the Name of the Lord!

At Wedesday’s doctor appointment, my doctor was unable to find a heartbeat. He sent me next door to the hospital for an ultrasound and they were also unable to find a heartbeat and, though I was at 15 weeks, baby measured 14 weeks.
I hope you had a wonderful day. We visited with friends this morning and then relaxed this afternoon. Yesterday was my husband’s 41st birthday, and we celebrated with his parents. It was very nice. Altogether it’s been a nice weekend.
I didn’t win. That doesn’t surprise me, though. The winner had *34* referrals. I was way behind with a grand total of *1*. No big.
