“Oh.my.goodness. I have just seen the link to this thread. I actually can hardly type through the tears – I just cannot believe that you are all willing to make and give this amazing wonderful gift to a complete stranger.
I don’t know if cwwm said but I will be giving the blanket to my elder dd Katie and telling her it was made by the loveliest ladies for her from Erin and that when she has it over her it will be Erins way of giving her a cuddle.
Honestly you will never ever know how much this means to me and my family at this dark time. A thousand thank you’s xxxxx”

“I just wanted to say a very big thank you to everyone who helped in the making of my blanket
I met with Edgar, Knotty and my ‘big sis’ Piste yesterday for lunch and wine and the exchange of woolly love and i have to confess I did cry – wouldnt allow Knotty to take a pic till i looked half decent
I am so over whelmed by the sheer love, time and effort that went into making it and last night I slept all snuggled up in it
It is so soft and every square made with love – I love all the squares but especially love the bear with a m on it
words can not express my thanks and appreciation and just doesnt seem enough saying thank you – but thank you”
“Our blanket is just gorgeous…I know we will spend a lot of time looking at each square, wondering who made it, but always knowing it was done with love. From the bottom of my heart, thank you wonderful MNers. Your generosity and kindness has staggered me. As has all the love and support you have shown me….”
Sending so much love to the wonderful Rindercella and her beautiful girls as we remember Richard. Always loved, always missed. The hugest hugs for them, their family and friends. xxx

DD1 picked out a few (I Like That Fishy! I Like That Bu’Fly! OOOH! Piwates!)
I had a very big cry over ‘smiley balloon’ because it is such a nice thought from the little boy that drew it out.
Thank you Orm for the blanket ones, they look like happy animals.
The elephants are very lovely, that purple is great…and all the way from Bangkok ! just imagining the heat of the Bangkok afternoon on two squares heading into the post….
Leo could only just say ‘El’phant’ Meeting an elephant in Bangkok was a lovely experience…and the symbolism is good. Elephants don’t forget
And the wonderful stitched butterfly, He did love butterflies. DD1 was scared of them for some reason…but she liked that one.
Thank you Poor long suffering DH had a big blub looking at it with me (particularly the beautiful butterfly) and says a big hairy thank you.”
