I am afraid we bring very sad news. We heard recently that 3littlebadgers' beautiful baby daughter was stillborn. Bless them all, such a devastating loss, we are so very sorry. 3’s thread is here. if you would like to add a message.

No words really are there? sad
3littlebadgers and her family are in our hearts and thoughts, and we send them our love.

We are so pleased that they have accepted our offer of a Woolly Hug, there will be love for them all in every stitch. We hope it may give whatever comfort it can to them.

So, we will need crocheters, knitters and donors (of funds or wool) If you would like to be involved in any way, please post on this thread and PM us via KnottyAndPistey with your offers: crafting, donating, need wool, etc and we’ll help you with all of it. All crafting abilities genuinely welcome, squares made by beginner or expert are equally welcomed. It really is the love and thought that counts.


Suggestions for personalisations and motifs
3littlebadgers and her family have been thinking about their blanket and have come up with some lovely ideas for their beautiful baby. Bless them all.

3 associates her daughter with white, white flowers, feathers and clouds…

Her children have suggested pink angel wings, little footprints ( she was so active and kicked them a lot) white balloons from her funeral, and ducks and horses which they see when they visit her grave.

3 also said that the morning of her birth saw a brilliant pink sunrise. This would make a beautiful square too.

Such beautiful ideas, and we also have the initials for all their children if this is something you can help with, please PM.
