The Blanket for DashingRedhead’s family

Would you be able to post the following thank you message up on the thread. I really want to thank each and every individual who has contributed, am moved to tears.

“Dear lovely Mumsnetters and the community of Woolly hugs”,

It is now 18 months since Nikki died, and although our lives are more bearable and our children being so much happiness there isn’t a day that goes by when we don’t miss Nikki.

Also, at a time when so much seems to be going wrong in the world acts of such generosity love and kindness are even more special.

As you know, Nikki, DashingRedhead, was a very keen Mumsnetter and the wonderful community provided a lot of support to her all though her illness and to us after they died.

The colours are Nikki’s autumn colours. I love how the patchwork squares that include all four of our initials, the female symbol to show her feminism, shamrocks and Celtic crosses for her Irish heritage and peacocks for her Burmese.

There is music, wine, sea shells (she loved living by the sea, as well as visiting the Rosslaire beaches of her father) and even handbags to show how much she loved playing Miss Prism in the Importance of Being Earnest in a school production. Last but not least there are minions.

This really captures the essence of Nikki. I am not in any way religious myself but I am absolutely certain that Nikki would have loved it too. I am just bowled over.

Thank you once again. Geoff. x
