25 days of Giveaways...





























I wasn't really sure what hand made item to offer up as my give away for today so I'm posting several pictures... If you are the winner for today's giveaway you get to choose any of the items pictured!!!

I have spent most of the last year rediscovering my love of knitting. I started out slow - mostly scarves and hats and baby blankets to donate... but I've completely enjoyed my knitting therapy sessions and I love the idea that someone else can enjoy one of these great items!
Leave me a comment and tomorrow I will post the winner!
If you are the winner - please e-mail me as quickly as possible - I really want to get this out to you before our new addition arrives.

How beautiful. I so wish I could knit, but it is definately not one of my gifts. I am excited about the change to read your blog.

I have been trying to teach myself to knit for months now and I just haven't picked it up yet! Your creations are beautiful!

Jeanette said...

Gorgeous sets. I find knitting and sewing good therapy too.

margaret said...

OMG, those are gorgeous...I'm envious. I have no knitting or sewing talents and when I see stuff like this I really wish I did. Congratulations on your impending birth, what a road you've travelled. Many hugs...

Ter said...

hi i came here via the giveaway but I'll spend some time today looking through your blog to get to know you. I, too, am a bereaved mom.

I wish I could knit too, I have made some baby hats using knifty knitter, but I think that's the extent of my knitting talent. ;)

Tina said...

Oh they look so warm and cozy Donna!!! I love them! xx

I LOVE the sets. I hope to start crocheting premie hats for local hospitals...Have to lear the lingo though for the patterns, I only know how to make chains right now! LOL Anyhoo, what a wonderful talent and way to keep your hands busy. I'd LOVE to have one!!! :-)

Lea said...

This is one thing I cannot do... knit, or sew.... :) So, I am very impressed. Beautiful selection! Would love to add one of these to my collection of scarves....

Mackenzie's Mommy said...

I love your stuff!! I really want to learn to knit and sew, etc. It's intimidating to me though :) Hope I win...it's getting cold in Texas and we're not used to it ;)

Susan said...

They are beautiful. I wish that I had time to teach myself how to knit. I would love to donate little hats to our hospital.

Karen said...

Everything is so pretty! We're going to have to share some of our favourite patterns. I've found it to really help me since George died - keeping my hands busy when my arms are emptier than they were meant to be. Sending you all good thoughts and prayers for a healthy and happy delivery. (((Hugs)))

Krista said...

I wish I had talent to make such beautiful things like this. It probably would have filled a lot of empty time that first year after losing my girls. I would love to win some of these!

Michele said...

You are so talented! I had the kids in your hats the other day and everyone- I mean EVERYONE- asked me where I had gotten such cute hats.

Bree said...

Hi Donna,
I'm a long time lurker on your blog (well a few months). :) Cant wait to hear that Eli is here safely. I enjoy following your story. My sister has a little boy, age 4, named Eli who is adopted from Guatemala like yaya. I like to knit too. Though I'm very much of a novice.

jamie said...

These are all so beautiful! One good thing about bed rest is it is giving me time to work on crocheting !

glad you are doing so well!

Emily said...

They're so pretty! I crochet angel blankets for the hospital that delivered my little angel, and I totally get what you mean about it being therapeutic. I like to pray for the mommies and daddies while I'm working on their blankets.

Christy said...

Those pieces are beautiful! Would love to have them all!

My seven-year-old so wants to learn knitting, but her mother (me) doesn't have the slightest idea where to begin. These are beautiful!

Peace, my friend.
