I am so grateful to have come across your page/blog ... I lost my beautiful precious daughter Jennifer November 8th 2015 she was 39 and it's been so very hard for us ...I have been doing crafts/crochet/ knit for so many years and Jennifer always had the first choice of anything I made ..now I feel so lost ..I have been trying but just can't finish my projects because it hurts so much because I know she's won't be choosing any more so somehow I came across you site and I was like oh my ..so many of us loss our beautiful baby/child/children ... So I decided to do this in my daughter name ...my son was also premature he was 4.7 ...but before I go ahead I wanted to make sure that it was ok with you if I use your patterns to donate at the hospital near me ..thank you again thank you ..so many grieving parents out there I thought it would be nice to do something for them ...��
Hi there Johanne,I am very sorry to hear of the loss of Jennifer. It is never an easy thing to go through. I think crocheting in her name is a beautiful idea. Yes, absolutely you can use my patterns to donate to your local hospital. That is the reason I share them free and publicly, so everyone can have the opportunity to make and donate to whichever place they like to. Even one item can make a huge difference for a grieving family. I wish you well in your journey, and I hope that crocheting in your daughters name will help you too, I know it was my lifeline in my darkest hours.
