The Blanket is Finished

Recovery Blanket Finished

Sandy, Delilah and Kye

Recovery Blanket Complete

Thank you so much for your lovely messages yesterday, I really appreciate it. I woke up at 4am feeling awful, Richard got up and made me tea and gave me some remedies to try and help me feel better. He’s so sweet, I’m grateful for him every day he’s so kind and thoughtful. I felt much better when it was time to get up. Kye had come through to our room early this morning with a blocked nose and sore eyes, he also woke up feeling a little better. This flu has been relentless in its quest for domination and I don’t have much time for it. I’ve just made a pot of chicken and ginger soup for lunch, I’m sure this recipe from Nourishing Traditions will work its magic and have us all feeling right as rain in no time. I love this book, it’s filled with wonderful recipes and information for healthy eating and well-being.

I finished sewing up the Recovery Blanket this morning and sewing in all the ends. This blanket has been such a lovely healing journey for all of us. I gave it to my mom and she is so pleased with it. We are all very grateful to everyone who sent pieces for this very special project. I’ll be making a second blanket as there are still so many pieces remaining, so my mom will have two:)

My mom has been staying with us since my dad passed away in August last year, she has just bought herself a lovely apartment in a retirement village just around the corner and is ready to slowly move forward with her life. It will be so strange without her here but she seems quite excited to become a part of this new community and I’m happy for her. We will all be helping with the big move next week and Caiden is so excited to have sleep-overs at Granny’s new home.

Happy Yarn Along.

    Biggest of hugs to you and your whole family!
    It’s great to hear that you are feeling better – the flu can be so terrible. And best of luck to your mother.

    I guess it’s that time of year in your part of the world…I’m so pleased that we made it through this winter with NO ONE getting sick! That’s a first for us. It’s awful to feel ill, and when I’m well, I find I forget to be grateful for just feeling well!

    Your blanket is gorgeous…love it! I wish your mom all the best in her new house (although I suspect your place will still be ‘home’ for her!)

    Wow. What a beautiful labor of love. I know your mother will feel the prayers of so many as she enjoys this work of art.

    Glad you are on the mend and I agree that the chicken and ginger soup is exactly the right remedy. 🙂

    Blessings, Debbie

    The blanket is really beautiful, and I am sure sewing up all those slightly different squares was quite a job.

    It is great that your mum is looking forward to her move. My mum (who I’ve been to visit today) lives in a retirement flat, and is busier now than I think she has been in years. It is quite hard to
    catch her in these days (what with scrabble, whist, darts, quiz nights etc. etc.) She did take a while to find her feet, and for first few months was a bit unsettled.

    The blanket turned out nicely. It looks like a good one to sit on the couch reading a good book.

    The blanket turned out really nice. I hope you all feel better soon.

    Absolutely beautiful. Great job.

    Ohh Linda! …it’s so beautiful! …what an honor to see my little contribution intertwined with the rest of the love :O) May peace and healing always abound in your home and your mama’s new home!


  19. Jeanette May 29, 2013 at 10:36 pm #

    Well done Linda, it has turned out so lovely. Can you tell me how you joined the squares – what stitch did you use? Wishing you, your mum and your family peace and happiness.

  20. Pam Tocornal May 29, 2013 at 10:42 pm #

    This is wonderful. We are all so happy to make our contributions to help your Mom get thru this loss. If there are enough love squares to make another blanket, I think you should make it for yourself. Our squares are as much for you as for your Mom and this was a sad loss for you too. Wrap yourself in the love and affection we all feel for you dear Lady.

    Your blanket is beautiful and every stitch has love in it and that’s what I like about it most. I think it’s wonderful that your mom was an intimate member of your family during a difficult life transition. Your children have learned such compassion!! I hope they have tons of fun at the sleep overs and you might get the night off 🙂

    Simply full of love and healing comfort. Beautiful.

  23. Chris May 30, 2013 at 12:23 am #

    All I can say about the blanket is WOW!! It is so beautiful. How many squares are in one blanket and how large are the squares? Feel better soon.

    • Linda May 30, 2013 at 5:51 pm #

      Hi Chris,
      There are 121 pieces in the blanket:)

  24. Christine May 30, 2013 at 1:46 am #

    Oh Linda, the blanket is beautiful. So much love within it from all over the world. Many hugs to you and I can almost feel the warm hugs this blanket will provide your mum. So very special. Thankyou for sharing it here, I enjoyed spying my square within it. 🙂

    My mum moved into a new unit in a retirement village after we lost my dad. It has been very agreeable for her..loads of new friends just doors away and a bustling social calender while still maintaining her independence. Best wishes for your mum as she shifts toward her new life. xx
