This was my favorite Christmas present: A lovely seed pearl necklace with silver charms. It was given to me by my husband’s mother and I love it so much.
I love layering it with other necklaces, but more than that, it’s extra special to me because it represents my babies and I, all together.
I read a mother’s comment recently about the phrase “losing a child”. She explained that children who pass away are not ‘lost’, they just go on ahead of us. I like that way of thinking about it.
Come what may, I will always have four children. Barring a miracle, Knox will go to heaven ahead of us, but he won’t be ‘lost’.
I wanted to make a special place for this necklace when I’m not wearing it so I began to scour the house for something to recycle.
I found a cloth diaper that had been used as one of Knox’s burp cloths in the kitchen. Perfect!
The colors are simple and sweet.
I made some little birds out of blue felt, one for me and one for each of my children.
I sewed the birds into the nest and added a bow, and then embroidered the number 4.
Velcro was sewn onto the inside of the back flap along with some extra stitching and another bow.
I like bows, if you can’t tell.
Have a great week! Thanks for coming over and taking a look!
