So, I don't know if people have heard of Rainbow Babies? I didn't until recently.
""A “rainbow baby” is a baby that is born following a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss.In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better. The rainbow is more appreciated having just experienced the storm in comparison.""
My son and his girlfriend have 2 boys, followed by a little girl. She sadly died from cot death in April 2015, aged 27 days old. It was a truly awful time for everyone. Last year, I made them a fused glass photo frame with a verse for their daughter who fell asleep. They are now expecting another little girl in April this year, so I wanted to make something special for this little arrival, and opted for a Rainbow Baby design. I hunted the internet but couldn't see what I was after, so made it myself.
I made the tree from twisting wire (it'll get tidied up before it's finished), and the baby I made using a mould. I'm not brave enough or skilled enough to sculpt a baby. I also made some little rainbows to hang from the tree, and some little pink blocks, which I'll paint the baby's name on. I'm loving the progress so far, and hope they like it as much as I do
I can't bake it until the bake and bond stuff is dry 20170223_195242
