I know I've done baby hat donation page before, but I wanted to do one with the recent donation, plus I really wanted to redo that old page with my new template (thank you, anonymous benefactor~!)

 

The text says:

After my miscarriages, as a form of therapy, I began knitting and crocheting baby hats to donate. At the time I made this page, I had donated three different times to the Family Birthplace at St Joseph Hospital West in Lake St Louis, Missouri. The first time was on 8/10/10 (top photo, 40 hats). The second time was on 5/31/11 (28 hats, middle photo). The third time was on 12/22/11 (28 hats, bottom photo. The large photo was of the first time I donated hats.

That beautiful purple background drew my attention, then I saw the photos. Wow - you have done some lovely work. Sweet and generous. (I love the Santa hat.)

You are an amazing woman... being able to work on something so close to your own hurt... I admire you for it :-) Your sheer productivity is impressive too! And what beautiful work you do... I know I am amongst at least one other crocheter in the comments here and I suspect there are multiple knitters who are admiring your work... Your layout is lovely and the template is really working for you! I like how you chose a paper that gives the feel of a knitted piece too, nice work! Overall a wonderfully touching page :-)

I love the purple background and the photos lined up on the ribbon. It's a lovely photo of you, and the baby hats look so soft and pretty. You know, when we were babies, it was almost expected that someone would crochet or knit the baby something. I think that is probably far from the case these days. It's a really special thing to do, and I know there are parents out there who will be so proud of these little gifts!
