There is something so comforting in the repetition of simple stitches, and over the last days the Do You Mind If I Knit Blanket project has been hugely helpful to me in the most difficult days. The squares created by so many different people with one goal and the care that has gone into each piece along with the rhythm of the stitching has given me a calm oasis to escape to.
Because, you will know from my last post that mother was ill. She went into hospital just over two weeks ago with pneumonia, and when she didn’t respond to treatment had a scan. A week ago today I held her hand when we were told that she had multiple cancers in her poor frail body, and two days ago I held her hand as she passed away.
Thank you to you all who sent good wishes and prayers, they have also been comforting. My own prayers that she didn’t have long to suffer were also answered.
Planet Penny will be quiet for a little while, but Lisa at Bobobun will update you with news of the DYMIIK blanket.
Again, thank you everyone out there. The creative world is filled with lovely people…
