Do small things with great love.

Last week I showed a small embroidery that I will put in the center of a dresden block and fashion into a pillow. The pillow will be a gift for my daughter.I have gotten a little of the stitching done. Plan to do some more slow stitching on it today. 
My daughter lives up to the essence of the saying. She has donated her time and love to many causes over the years. She has volunteered to assist veterans and active service men and women for quite a few years through various organizations. She and her children have sorted canned goods at a food bank. They have assisted in cleaning up a beach. 

Her newest contributions are to Teeny Tears and Angel Outfitters. They make tiny clothing for preemies who do not survive. Please read about their missions at the above links.

My daughter is an avid crocheter. Sewing has not really been her thing. But, look at these tiny diapers she sewed this week! Beautiful top-stitching on these. I'm a proud Mama.
Last week-end she made these little knit hats for the preemies.They are made from medical stockinette and ribbons, then embellished. There are 48 sets of 2.
She also spent her Black Friday making these tiny buntings.
And, yes, she also cooked Thanksgiving dinner for 2 of her children and her 6 grandchildren. Plus, she works full time. I am so proud of the woman she has become. 
And, as you can see, she is beautiful on the outside, too. Love you, Dana.

May all your ups and downs today be with needle and thread.
