… and welcome to Sing Little Sparrow. I bet you are wondering what Sing Little Sparrow is all about.
For starters, it is a business where I sell handmade baby quilts and accessories. I started making the quilts for gifts and soon had people asking for them so it seemed like something I could sell. I have added other items like bibs, burp cloths and change pads to create complete layettes.
This blog, I hope, will have lots of beautiful things to inspire others as well as myself. The beauty in nature is what inspires my creations and I want to express some of that here as well as just give thanks for the things God has brought my way.
One of the people I am most thankful for and the inspiration for the name Sing Little Sparrow is my mom. I remember every Christmas as a kid having something handmade by mom. One year she made each of us a Winnie the Pooh character. I still have my Eeyore. She taught me to sew when I was about 12. My mom has been gone for almost 8 years. She struggled with MS for 33 years. Near the end, when she was confined to her bed, she loved to watch the sparrows outside her window. She held on to the promise that if God cared about these plain, little birds He cared even more about her. She drew her courage from that. And so every time I hear a sparrow’s sweet song it reminds me of my mom.
I’m thankful for what my mom has given me. She is still my inspiration and when I am afraid of taking a new step I always think of her and her courage. And I am thankful for all the wonderful, inspiring people I have met so far. I hope to meet you soon too!
