Finally, we spent the night together

Our relationship began just before last Christmas. It started small,Β  a bit at a time and I wasn’t sure what the outcome would be. Really it was just an idea to begin with, but somehow things grew and grew and before I knew it the whole thing seemed to have taken on a life of its own. Things did get rather hot over the summer and sharing a bed simply wasn’t an option. But, finally, last night it felt right.

The morning after

The morning after

And so, for the first time, I snuggled down to sleep under the Masterpiece*. And very cosy it was too. I foresee many warm and happy nights thanks to my friends from around the world.

Very snuggly

Very snuggly (and Max agrees)

* If you haven’t met the Masterpiece before (I know I’ve had a flush of new readers recently), the story starts here.

  3. …and when Mr SoH gets home, there’ll be three in the bed! Seriously though, was it comfy or a tiny bit heavy?

    • Because I was careful about the weight of the yarn used to join it and about distributing the really heavy squares, it’s great. It’s on top of quite a light duvet and the combination is just right for me on my own, although I suspect that with current temperatures it might be too warm at weekends.

    • I’m planning to transfer all the stories etc to Pinerest as the ‘Masterpiece’ page has got a bit out of hand! There are already pictures on Pinterest, but not all the text… I do wish there were more hours in the day!

  11. I love your blanket, such a lovely thought that the squares have all been made by people who have chosen to support you in some way. It gives a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘security blanket’.

    • So true… I’m very taken with the idea of making connections with people in this way. If we all felt cared for by other people around the world, perhaps we’d be nicer to each other.

    • I know how many contributors look for their own square in the photos, so I’m trying to take pictures from a variety of angles so no one feels left out!
      The blanket is lovely and warm and also makes me feel emotionally warm and fuzzy!!
