Hands Blanket

A close friend in our church community is hospitalized with oesophageal cancer.  As an expression of our care and love for him, the families of our group each traced their hand-prints, which were then enlarged by approx 40%.  The paper pattern was then cut from ProFusion prefelt for each of the hands.  The hands were then placed in their relevant family groupings on a base of double-thickness ProFusion, which was then wet felted.  You can see the tiny hand print of little Grant, our newest grandson, in the top left-hand corner grouping.  He was only 6 days old at the time we traced his hand. 
The blanket/throw is now in Al's room at the VA hospital where he has been since September.  He recently penned a poignant letter to the fellowship group to express his thoughts.  We continue to keep him and his wife, Rita in our thoughts and prayers.
