The Blanket for SanJunipero

To everyone who contributed to our beautiful Woolly Hug,

Our blanket arrived this morning and it’s so, so lovely. I can’t imagine the hours and hours of work you all must have put into it – and you’ve never even met us. Thank you from the bottom of my heart; I love it, and promise we’ll treasure it forever.

There are so many beautiful little details; I’ve spread it out on the floor to look at and keep noticing new things – flowers, stars, rainbows, our initials, chicks, tea and cake, sewing, Harry Potter, little birds… even a hedgehog! Everything she loved is there.

I’ve been showing our son the blanket, and he particularly loves taking the little guinea pig and chick out of their pockets smile He was nine months old when my wife died and turned eighteen months last week, so he’s now got to the point where he’s had longer without her than with her. That’s been a sad thought for me over the past few days, so our Woolly Hug arrived just at the right time.

Thank you all again so very much.

The Blanket for J’sotherhalf’s family

Wow, thank you doesn’t even cover it!

I’m the “J” in JsOtherHalf, and the stunning blanket you’ve made in K’s memory arrived today. It’s beautiful and myself and my son love it 💜 I’ve had the kitchen and dining room remodelled and the footstool storage for the new kitchen sofa is a perfect home for the blanket.

Next month will be one year since K passed away and she’s missed every day. She spent much of her online life on Mumsnet, using her experience of working with children with learning difficulties to good use with advice where needed. I’m proud that she meant enough to people for you to make this in her memory. Thank you x

The Blanket for Annandale

Oh I can’t tell you how lovely this is. Your amazing work is so glorious. I am tucked up on the sofa with your blanket around me. Unwrapping it, ds and I were laughing (both of us) and a bit tearful (me). This is such an amazing, amazing gift. Thank you all. I will find a way to contribute to make it up to you all. xx
