Squares for Nessa

One of the blogs I frequent is a mom with two sweet little girls she loves crocheting stuff for. Sound familiar? Well, that's why it gripped my heart to learn that one of her girls suffers from liver disease or some condition which affects her liver, I'm not sure. Anyway, her precious baby is now on the liver transplant list and mom is doing what dedicated mommas do, stressing, hustling to keep the house and routines in order, and doing her best to make her little princess comfortable.

She promised to make her baby a blanket to take to the hospital with her but doesn't know when she'll be able to fit this in and wants to make sure lil mama has it before her new liver comes I'm sure. That's why she called out for some assistance.

Learn more about Lesa and her babies and how you too can donate squares here. I'm sure I mentioned earlier how terrible I am at achieving gauge. This is why I ended up with an 8 inch square instead of a 6 like she asked for.

Hey, the fact that I can successfully shrink grown up patterns down to a perfect fit for Teddy Bear is pure luck every time.

Here's my first square...Those are butterflies. Maybe I should make enough of these for a blanket border and Lesa can fit whatever left over 6 inch squares she has in the middle.

I started my squares this weekend - I'm up to 6 squares so far, but your square is pretty.

Pretty square! Where did you get the pattern for it? I read Lesa's blog regularly and it's so heart warming that so many people are helping her out with the blanket. I pray all goes well for them. :-)
