You may have heard the dreadfully sad news that MamaTeeTee’s husband died suddenly at the end of December. Mental ill health can be such a devastating illness. Bless his heart. Life has been very cruel to them. We send MamaTeeTee and their little children our love and are so sorry for their loss. thanks

We are so glad that she has accepted our offer of a Woolly Hug, we hope it may give whatever comfort it can. There will be love crafted into every stitch. MamaTeeTee’s thread is here...

From MamaTeeTee
His favourite things were family time, food and the gym. Our initials are M, C, L, Z. He was a builder and loved his work. He was so talented. He loved music - he would listen to anything. He was born in the wrong era as he loved 50s and 60s music.

I'm overwhelmed by your kindness. It's such a lovely thing for you all to do for us. X

Bless her heart, we will make something very beautiful for them as a tribute to her fabulous DH.

Simple or complex, made by beginner or expert, we genuinely welcome them all. It really is the love and thought that counts. There is support for buying colours on our website, here. Squares to be six inches, using 4mm needles or hook. Previous blankets can be seen on our website If looking for ideas for a pattern, there are many linked to from our website under Crafting
