The Blanket for shefliesonherownwings

Remembering beautiful baby Isla. November 10th 2019. Our original thread is here…  Thank you so much everyone xxx

DH and I opened the Woolly Hug on Tuesday which was Isla’s first birthday and we were blown away by how beautiful it is. The care and love that has gone into it is evident and I didn’t expect anything so lovely and huge! We loved the frame with Isla’s name in it too and it has pride of place in the nursery.

We really are so so grateful to everyone who donated their time and money to putting the blanket together and it is so wonderful to have something for Isla and James that has been made with so much love by people that don’t even know us. It has really filled my heart with so much joy and I look forward to treasuring it forever. I really can’t thank you all enough for doing this for us. We are very thankful and grateful. Sending so much love to you all.

The Blankets for TQ’s wonderful daughters.

Our lovely TQ. TwitterQueen. We thought the world of her, she touched the lives of so many and we were all better for it. It was absolutely devastating when she died from ovarian cancer. Fuck cancer. Life was epically cruel to this beautiful woman.

We send our love and thoughts to her wonderful girls of whom she could not be more proud, her love for them shone like the brightest star, and we think of all who love and miss her everyday. We will remember TQ with hearts full and a big smile as we recall her in a dinner plate sized super sparkly badge at our Hugathon in September 2018. Epic!

She was a MNer for many years and will be sorely missed by so many of us here. The love and support she gave to so many folk on the cancer support thread was quite extraordinary, even when she was so ill herself. We were constantly in awe of this wonderful, thoughtful, super intelligent, caring, bloody funny woman. She sought to raise awareness of ovarian cancer which is often called the ‘silent killer’. She really wanted more women to be aware of what few symptoms there are and in doing so undoubtedly saved lives.

How lucky we were to know her. We were so glad to be able to send Woolly Hugs to her three daughters, she herself had contributed to so many, it was an honour. Her three daughters chose their own colour schemes and we hope we did TQ proud. We miss her.  Our original thread is here…

The Blanket for Willowkins

The beautiful, soft, warm, woolly hug arrived safely yesterday (I armed myself with a glass of wine when I opened it in case I was a bit wobbly). Thank you so much for the love, skill and dedication that you and the WH crew have shown me and my family. The Norwegian Blue and related squares are inspired but there are so many squares that will provide comfort and remembrance in the months and years to come – especially the anniversary of his death which is just a few weeks away now. This is so precious and I know that money can’t buy this but I would like to make a donation to help get the wool to the knitters so you can all keep going. When I get a chance, I will take a photo and send that to you too. Thank you.  Willowkins
