This is my flower. It won’t be buried, it won’t wilt. I hope it will withstand the years and provide a little bit of comfort.

Hello, Magic!

This is Magic. She moved herself into the box, preferring it to the readied bed.
Raptor likes her, she is rather terrified of his toddler energy and noise, but I think they will make a great pair once she settles in.

This is the beginning. Quickly made, on a long car journey. Thoughts of Nat are in every stitch.

Everyone needs a little Magic in their lives

Nat’s blanket project is moving forward. We now have over 50 people who have signed up to get involved in it, either by making squares or donating materials. A blanket made by many hands, many people who all care. It is a shame that it takes such a sad cause to unite us, but united we are.
Nat would be proud of my organisational skills – somehow I have found it within me to sort all of this out, to organise it and not lose focus in the chaos of messages. Maybe it will make a small difference to her family.

In other news, and compared to the magnitude of recent events this seems trivial, I am getting a little kitten on sunday. The house is organised, everything has been bought, and I am even getting a little.bit.excited. I’ve always wanted a kitten of my own. People keep saying to me that if I was an animal, I.would be a cat. Maybe that is why – there is certainly some truth in that observation.
Her name is going to be Magic, in honour of Nat’s nickname, and because everyone needs a little magic in their lives.
