A Blanket for the family of NormaStanleyFletcher

Norma had been a Mumsnet regular over the years across the boards, with a real zest for politics, feminism and strong opinions about Boris Johnson, as anyone at the MN 15th birthday party will tell you. Remembering THE Heckle which was epic. Love her for it. She also ran the Christmas appeal which would have been an astonishing amount of work. She cared enough for others to make it happen. Norma genuinely touched the lives of so many here on Mumsnet, ours included. Such a compassionate beautiful soul.

It was desperately shocking to hear of her death in August. She had been very ill and in the end her body couldn’t cope any more. Devastating for her husband and their wonderful children, their families and friends. They will miss her terribly.

Norma really wasn’t one to burden others with her worries, but was a very kind and selfless friend. So supportive of others. Generous to a fault in many ways, and very bloody entertaining. We can all learn from her.

As you will remember, we made a second blanket to Auction for Refuge and this will take place during our Christmas 2021 sale. The family blanket is on the right, the Auction one on the left.

Thank you so much everyone xxx

The Blanket for aloneinthenight

Ladies, my blanket arrived in the post this morning. I am overwhelmed. It is so beautiful and I can’t believe how much work has gone into it. I shall certainly treasure it.
The timing is perfect too, it’s Fred’s birthday next week, and soon the anniversary of this death. These two things, as well as the end of lockdown, have made the last few weeks tough.

It means so much to me that you have thought of us in the way.
You’re all ruddy lovely, Louise x

The Blanket for DrLouiseJMoody

Afternoon Everyone!

It’s here! It’s 2 pm and I’m upset like an idiot because J would LOVE it so much! All the Star Wars and scrabble references. It. Is. Brilliant.

A bit overwhelmed (in the best possible way) and can only say THANK YOU.

It’s on my bed for now and feels a bit like a weighted blanket so hopefully I’ll sleep well. The actual Scrabble is on it at present.

Love,

A Made Up Me 🧡

The Blanket for GoJetterGirl

Dear Woolley Hug Friends

I want to give a heartfelt thank you to everyone who contributed to Ben’s wonderful Woolley hug, you captured my special little boy perfectly, I can literally fee the love that has gone into every stitch

Today would have been Ben’s 8th birthday, I was unsure about how I would be coping today, this wonderful Woolley hug (delivered today!) has brought me so much comfort and a hint that perhaps my little boy made sure I was destined to receive it today to make sure that I had the comfort I need

thank you so so much, Ben in one of his lucid moments before he passed asked if all the messages I was reading him were from “mommy’s friends” and I can honestly say that even now, mommy’s friends have her back and continue to help me, love, GoJetterGirl xxx

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.
