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

The Blanket for Endofthelinefinally

 

To Knotty and Pistey and all the wonderful mumsnetters who contributed their time, skills and donations to create the most beautiful memory blanket.
It arrived this morning.

It is a truly gorgeous creation and I will treasure it always.
The understanding and kindness I have received from the people on the bereavement board has got me through the worst year of my life.

As my son’s first anniversary approaches I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

My thoughts are with all the others who have lost their loved ones and I hope you will all feel comforted by the love and support on mumsnet.

The Blanket for Echt

The blanket arrived via the FedEx man about half an hour ago on a cold, grey and windy winter afternoon. (School holidays at the moment). It’s lovely, and is currently draped over the back of the sofa. I’ll take a photo of it when the light is better, but have already sent a pic to our daughter. I’m so very grateful to the MN knitters, knotters and crocheting types. It couldn’t have arrived at a more apt time, quite apart from being close to when DH died, as this is the season when blankets, wraps and throws festoon the front room, the log fire is set going, and I settle down to the recently streamed “Handmaid’s Tale”.

Thank you for the (woolly) hugs.
Love, E
