I'm loving the little dolls sitting on their blankets.  They are so precious!

WOW - we just get better-and-better.!!    In this batch I just have to mention the cute turtle, the huge smiley face blanket amongst all the glorious stripes, and again some super all-in-ones..    I see my flower appliques and stripes sewn into a blanket and my 2 piece mustard trimmed blanket.   I just adore the massive array of colours and styles.    Thank you X

I've been away from the forum for a few weeks. My mother-in-law died and we've been down sorting everything out. Think of an apartment lived in for the past 45 years by someone who NEVER threw away anything! Yvonne was a couple of weeks off her 99th birthday and had a very full life as a social worker.

I think I went into shock when I saw all the fantastic blankets....so much hard work to produce such a wonderful collection.

What a big job, Valerie. I remember when my Mother in Law died I couldn't get over how many pairs of curtains she had stashed away - far more than she ever had windows to hang them at! I think clearing someone else's house makes you look very carefully at your own overflowing drawers and cupboards.

Yes, we've had some superb blankets lately - so many different styles and designs.

Our daughter came to help us, and I promised her that I would make sure that I'd have a great clearing session so that she'd not have the same problem. I tend to be something of a hoarder, although less than M-i-l as we've moved quite often. Moving tends to help in the getting-rid-of-useless-items process.  I don't think that Yvonne had ever thrown out the slightest card or letter that she'd received over the years. There were so many dish cloths and small hand towels, many unused.

The last of the blankets from the 27th July.

So much colour and beauty. As usual I feel so much joy looking at all these beautiful blankets and thinking of the children who will enjoy them.

Terrific assortment of stripes and colour combos.   It's a joy to behold all of these!

We start off with blankets from Linda Maltby with her trademark Wheel Spoke squares and also toys from Linda, my Christmas Wreath blanket, and a baby set from Karen Gordon. There are also some Not-a-Square blankets in this batch.

Thank you!    I spotted my turquoise Keppi blanket, hat + toy.   Loving all the stripes X
