The cat is out of the bag
Just before Mom started chemo a few months ago, I reached out to several of our Ravelry friends to see if they would be interested in helping me make Mom a giant yarny hug for the days we couldn't be with her.
I'm all about blankies - when life's got you down, there's nothing better than curling up with a blankie, a cup of tea and just veggin' out. And what's better than one that's been made by all your friends?
So, I asked our Rav friends, if they had the time and inclination, to contribute an eight inch afghan square in pink or purple (Mom's favourite colours right now).
The response to my plea was overwhelming. For about three straight weeks, I was receiving several packages each day from all over the world. (I'm sure my mail carrier hates me now). Many of them had notes for Mom tucked in with the squares - and many people made more than one square.
I made a Hello Kitty square out of some leftover Fat Cat.
I thought Mother's Day was the perfect day to surprise her with it.
