About the design
Lillie’s Dream flowed from my hook as my heart was heavy and sad after another month of failing to fall pregnant after 4 years of trying. 2 years on, i am ready to share my journey through this very heartfelt design. Accepting what life has for us without a baby, it is time to move to a new chapter and hopefully give comfort to those going through the journey of infertility, miscarriage or still birth.

Lillie is a name i have always wanted for a daughter, granted i was blessed with a daughter 13 years ago, Lillie (Lily as in the flower) however, is a name that means ‘innocence, purity and beauty’ but also too it was my paternal great grandmothers name, which i recently learned.

Openly speaking about infertility, miscarriage and still birth creates awareness. If you have been touched by any one of these, being yourself, daughter, sister or aunt, i hope this blanket gives you much comfort with your journey to healing.
