This is the blanket wincherella made for me. I am late in posting about it which may have made it seem like this kind gesture was not significant to me. That is not the case though. I simply could not figure how to write a post about it that conveyed both my gratitude for the blanket and the immediate connection I felt to it.
I moved to Florida without having any family here or close friends. I purchased a home this year. It was pre-furnished and decorated and while beautiful has been screaming for me to put my own touches on it and make it feel like home.
Growing up, we had several crocheted blankets. One a square pattern, one a chevron pattern, and one that is basically a rainbow. One came from my grade school auction that I begged my parents to buy because it is was so beautiful and two from a neighbor that also made my baby blanket. These gifts take time and concentration and now to have one of my own means so much.
Every time I was sick or sad, I was comforted by being wrapped in one of these. Every time I was stressed I laid on the couch and read with one of these.
Having this blanket not only makes my house feel like a home, it makes me feel at home.
Thank you so much!
