The Blankets for Expat and Giraffes

Many of us followed Aillidh’s journey, our hearts touched by this brave and beautiful little girl. She will live long in our memories. Our hearts and thoughts are with Aillidh, Expat and their family.

As part of this project, we also made a blanket for Giraffescantdance. Since Aillidh’s diagnosis, Giraffes has been a constant support and the most remarkable friend to Expat. She has walked this journey beside her and continues to do so, sadly understanding it only too well as she, like Expat, has experienced the devastating loss of a beloved daughter. Our thoughts are with her, as well as our thanks.  We hope that the blankets may give whatever comfort they can to them all. The original thread is here

The Blanket for 3girlies

“I would like to say a huge thanks to everyone who contributed to our lovely blanket. I wanted to wait until Flora’s sisters came home from school so we could open it together, we are just overwhelmed! It is so beautiful, we have so enjoyed picking out the initials and Flora’s name, also managed to identify some of the flowers, don’t think we have taken in every detail yet, I sure we will notice other wonders later. We are all thrilled with it including Flora’s Dad, we can’t believe how many total strangers spent so much time creating such a beautiful memorial.

It does not feel enough just to say thanks, we are so moved by this.

Love,

3g and family. X”

The Blanket for matildawormwood

Dear Knotty
My beautiful blanket arrived safely today. It’s even more gorgeous in real life than in the photos and I can’t stop staring at it and stroking it…the exquisite detail, the skill, the care, the love, the stories, that went into it. It means so much to me. And knowing that some of the women who worked on this blanket have suffered similar losses to mine only makes it all the more special. It’s such a wonderful thing that you do and I will treasure my Woolly Hug forever. I hope there is somewhere that you can post this message of thanks so that the lovely ladies who worked on it will know how grateful I am.
Much love to you

The Blanket for Greengoose

“Our blanket arrived safe and sound in Devon this afternoon. It is just stunning, I can’t believe the sheer amount of work in it, it’s beautiful!

I shared it with our two boys when they got home from school and we spent ages looking at all the squares together. The boys were so happy to see their initials and to find Merryns! I cried reading all the cards, full of such lovely words from people I have never met, but who know my little girls story.

I am now 23 weeks pregnant with a little brother for my two boys and Merryn, and I will use our blanket to tell this little one about his sister, and the love and kindness she inspired. I can’t think of a better way to explain to him about Merryn.

Thank you lovely vipers, you are amazing. Xxx”
