Holy Sews

Mending Hearts One Stitch at a Time

Holy Sews provides handmade infant burial clothing for families that experience the loss of their baby during gestational weeks 16-25.  These micro preemie babies are much too tiny and fragile for any other clothing that is readily available. We accomplish this by supplying hospitals and funeral homes with a stock of layettes that families can choose from. All of this is provided at absolutely no charge to the hospitals, funeral homes, or the families that they serve.

We are entirely funded by donations and all of our garments are made by volunteers.

Passing the time with a bit of sewing. My sister told me that I needed to have someone email the pattern to me. 😂 I told her that I built this wheel once, I can do it again.
I just don't have any ribbons with me right now, but that's an easy fix later. 😊

Mom takes a breath about every 4 seconds. I'm not placing any bets on her earthly departure. I lost that bet every time I've placed it so far. She is peaceful. ... See MoreSee Less

Mama's big, strong, love-filled heart is STILL beating.
Last night was the first night since last Friday that I didn't get up to check her. I slept 12 hours minus the few minutes at 5:30 am when I was awake for one sister's allergy sneezing fit, and for the other sister to tell me that mom is still here.
Mama is surprising even the hospice people.

I have a wonderful image in my head of your family at your mother's bedside. What a beautiful way to send her on her journey to heaven. ❤️❤️ ... See MoreSee Less

Many of you have sent messages of concern for my Mama and the rest of my family. We are busy standing guard, cleaning house, doing laundry, feeding cows, scratching our heads, crying, singing, praying, staring in disbelief, holding our breath, giggling, reminiscing, etc. As my niece says, "feeling ALL of the feels."
Mama has brought this family together in a way that we haven't experienced in years.
The only explanation I can give as to why my mother is still here is because of her strong, love-filled heart.
In her helpless state, her strong, beating heart is holding us all together.

Not much to report. Just standing guard at the feet of Christ. It's hard to leave the room. Mama's breath is shallow, she stops occasionally. We all hold our breath, she starts breathing again. Swing low, sweet chariot. This has been a very long, bittersweet goodbye.

Remember the wedding dresses I asked for? My SIL takes them apart and I've been sitting by mom sewing keepsake handkerchiefs. Normally this tedious hand sewing makes me cuckoo, but over these last several days has been quite comforting.

These dresses will make gorgeous layettes.

Those of you who know me, know that my mama has end stage Alzheimer's disease, and she is currently in hospice care at home. I have discovered that taking apart wedding dresses is quite therapeutic for us while we wait, visit, and care for mom.

I have 2 dresses that I can take with me when I go on Friday, but if you've been thinking about donating your wedding dress to Holy Sews, now would be a good time to follow through.

Please pray for a few more good, peaceful days and an easy transition into heaven for my mama. Thank you. 💕
