Big knitted monster hugs........










You guys!!!!!!!
Thank you for all the wonderful love you sent.
Your comments meant the world to Warren & I.
My Daddy is improving and tomorrow will start therapy.
These are the photos we took on Thursday before we got the phone call about Dad.
They are taken in "Sumner" were a shipping container has been shown love with a big snuggly patchwork knit rug. Each patch was made from different groups for all the people in Christchurch after the earthquakes.
Kind of shows that love comes from many places but when its knitted together it can wrap around you and make things so much better.

  17. That gigantic Nana rug is awesome! What a lovely idea for the special city of Christchurch. I am so sorry to hear about your Dad & the awfully stressful week you've had. You certainly have copped a lot in the last couple of years. I do wish your Dad a full & speedy recovery. It's strange getting to the age where our parents are getting older. One of those yucky parts of life. I love you in brown...the floral frock is oh so sweet, & you know I love those boots! Love to you. Xx
