The Blanket for CatThiefKeith’s family

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all who have taken time out of their lives to make this blanket in memory of CTK..
Myself and CTK’s family are forever grateful for the love and support you guys have shown in making sure she will not be forgotten. CTK packed a huge amount into her life and I know she never regretted a single thing. Her stories and jokes have been told far and wide and depicted in this very blanket.
We will treasure it forever..
Thank you so much, you have no idea how much this means.. Especially to DD who now has a constant keepsake to remind her of mummy..
thank you

The Blanket for Trazzletoes

 

And the blanket… our blanket… it’s so beautiful. We have all sat together amazed at the skill and poring over the individual squares, looking at it brings such happy memories of Pokemon hunts, giggles, cuddles, sunny days by the sea, smiles and love.

We are all overwhelmed by how beautiful it is and have already spent hours snuggled together under it, comforted by it.

Thank you, and Knotty, and the crafters and the donors. It is perfect and wonderful and a beautiful reminder of our wonderful Joseph.

Thank you xxx

 

Joseph touched the hearts and lives of so many, as did his mum, ours included.  Many of us followed their ongoing journey, that rocky old road, dedicating our ‘splodges of light’ around the globe as we thought of them, always sending love. Devastatingly their beautiful boy died from neuroblastoma in July. Words don’t seem enough. We are so sorry. J will live long in our memories, bless him. xx

With the love and support from so many, we made two blankets and were so pleased to be able to get a photo of them together, on the left is the blanket for the family and on the right the blanket we will auction for the charity of their choice which is Candlelighters. This auction will take place parallel to our Spring Craft Sale in March.  Thank you so much everyone xxxx

The Blanket for JuanPotatoTwo

The blanket came today. I waited until the dc were all home – I have 4 (ds1 – 24, dd – 22, ds2 – 20 and ds3 – 13) – before I opened it. We all held it out between us and for about ten minutes none of us spoke (which is unprecedented). And then we went and stood in Mark’s dialysis unit (which is actually a small conservatory off the kitchen) which probably sounds strange, but he spent so much time in there that it felt fitting. And we just talked about this beautiful blanket that complete strangers had gone to so much time, trouble and expense to make for us. We were looking and talking (and crying!) for the best part of an hour – so much thought has gone into every square, it’s really humbling. The pictures truly don’t do it justice and I’m hoping to be able to pm everybody involved individually to thank them. But for now, please know that we are so touched and so grateful and that we love our Woolly hug. Xx

The Blanket for Tunnocks, also known as thatscottishconfection

It’s arrived!!! So, so wonderful. I cried. The kids love it too – every square. It’s so appropriate – perfect. Can’t thank you all enough. This is one of the things that will get us through this winter. The kids have just taken it downstairs to snuggle under it whilst they watch a movie.

So many thanks again- to everyone xxxxxx
