oh goodness what a (happy ending) story these special mittens hold !
thank you so much for sharing it with us all
yes you should frame them, I agree with you


I had shivers looking at Geninne's father's art earlier today and now am having shivers for a different reason. What a powerful story behind those mittens. Isn't it interesting how certain objects carry so much of us in them.


That's such a touching story!Thanks for sharing!AriadnefromGreece!

wow, that's amazing.


Who knew mittens could have such a story behind them? Definitely worth framing.


I think that's a wonderful idea
life is precious, we need a little reminder every once in awhile
and what a beautiful way to remember.

Life is precious. I'm so glad you're in mine.


These are lovely. This is a sweet gesture.


They're beautiful. The message made me well up :)
Some people would look back on that time as difficult, you look back on it as a positive reminder. You're a good teacher. Jx


Beautiful tribute to the life. It makes these mittens so vey special !
Crafting has that fantastic and helpful power to keep the mind busy.


Special mittens indeed. We knit our lives into our stitches in so many ways don't we.

The warmth of your heart and how dear life is are truly shared by that pair of mittens. Wonderful end to a tale that could have gone either way.

Even the NAME mitten is perfect. Your's would look lovely framed. I've always tried to give newborns a pair of red mittens, with a copy of Maude Lewis' book, The Christmas mail. Especially Nova Scotia babies!

I love those mittens, they look like they've stepped out of a Swedish folklore tale, and they do have their own story. How about framing them with one of your wonderful snow photos in the background, what a lovely combination that would be!
