Such sad news from lovely FiveGoMadinDorset, her wonderful DH died towards the end of July from the bastard illness which is cancer. We send so much love to Five and her two wonderful children, aged just 13 and 11. Cancer is so cruel, and we are so sorry they are now without him, we send huge hugs to all who love and miss him. Her thread is here… if anyone would like to post.

FiveGoMadinDorset is one of our brilliant Woolly Hugs’ crew, such a compassionate soul who has helped countless families on here and with our other projects too, it’s time for us to do something woolly for her now. We are so glad she has accepted our offer for a blanket for her and the children. Can you help us? We shall need crafters and donors alike.


Five and their children have had a think of ideas to help make this a real tribute to him, a true celebration, and there's lots we hope folk can tackle, but please don’t feel daunted, simple squares are needed too.

Their ideas...
Star The family’s initials are D, S, E and S. But they all called him by his nickname Titch

I have sent you a PM. I would love to make a square or two - I could do initials or Titch. I've had a look at my stash and I don't have any of the colours. Could I have some wool please?
