moving on

I'm always a little sad at the end of Winter to pack
my crochet blankets away.
All during the cold weather
they have been snuggled in and cuddled in.
They have been cried on and laughed in.
They have been fought in and fought over.

For now they are clean and being packed away.
Next Winter will be very different in my home
with my kids growing up and moving on.

So I guess I will be making blankets for their homes...

and cuddling the pets that are left behind.

Oh these blankets are lovely Clare!!! Just think of all the wonderful blankets you can make for your kids now that there is an added excuse for more crocheted blankets to be made!!!

such beautiful blankets Clare! and yes it certainly is different when they move out, we had one move out at the beginning of this year and move to the other end of the State for Uni and we see her often but I still miss her xx
