Bertie's Blanket - Number 2

Thank you soo much for all the help to make these hospice blankets. We have now completed blanket #2 - the Aran weight sampler in shades of the sea.

Berties Blanket Aran

It's hard to believe that it has been 2 years since Dad was diagnosed, and passed from brain cancer. I started this effort one year ago... my thought was to channel some of my feelings and energy into something good; something that would help bring a small comfort to those who also have need for hospice care. What began out of sadness, started to turn into joy when you kindly helped with words of support and generous donations of squares. And here we are with 1 blanket delivered to Trinity hospice already and this 2nd one to go in the mail this week.

My sincere and heartfelt thanks go to you for your kind help and support of this project. 

With much love and gratitude,
