I wanted you all to hear the poem that Gina V included with Teddy Bear Love long before anyone knew it would be going to Austin. I think this poem is just perfect for him right now! See what you think.....

TEDDY BEAR! TEDDY BEAR!

Teddy Bear! Teddy Bear!
You sweet thing!
What warmth and friendship you do bring.
You’re always there to hug and hold;
To you my secrets all are told.

Teddy Bear! Teddy Bear!
The best of chums!
Get some rest before tomorrow comes.
‘Cause at the dawn of each new day,
It’s with YOU I’ll want to play!

Teddy Bear! Teddy Bear!
Torn and tattered.
You were my friend
When it REALLY mattered!

I'd love to take the credit but it is one of many I collected over the years!

Wow!!! and Wow!!!

That is the most beautiful blanket i have seen so far . So much effort and hard work . From the hearts to the bears and the letters spelling teddybear .
I know this blanket will be much loved by Austin

The section below mine (mine are the hearts) the knitter has put the words "teddy bears" right into the blanket. This is one really terrific blanket. So much love and knitting knowledge went into this one. I just love it!!!

Ladies, I am sitting here surrounded by a rainbow of knitting. I am so emotional right now, totally overwhelmed by all the support and help you have all given to me, so that I could realize my dream of helping the hospital that saved the life of my daughter when she was only 9 weeks old! I can't thank you enough, each and every one of you! Tomorrow I will have blanket #8 in my hands and all it needs is a border. Monday the post office is bringing me #9 & #10, one just needs a border and the other needs some knitting and a border. When those are finished I will be taking a trip downtown to The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Ontario.

Once again, thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Keep up the good work!!!

Christine

P.S. the bottom picture is the one closest to the real colours of the blankets. Sorry, I have to take the pictures inside where I can lay the blanket flat to photograph it and the flash goes off, changing the colours. The bottom picture, the one of the whole blanket is the best shot for true colour!

P.P.S. If you want to view a the picture in a larger form, just left click on it and it will enlarge, then click on it again to bring it back to the size it is posted.

Sky Blue and Sugar, Spice and All Things Nice came home today! They are lovely looking blankets. I will put a border on Sky Blue and knit my six inches on Sugar & Spice, put a border on it and then post pictures.

Also in the box was a lovely skein of Pluma yarn. It is soooooo soft and a lovely red colour. I don't know what to make with it yet, but I will decide and then make something for me!!! Thanks so much Sue. The card is really cute too! I am sure you made it, because it looks like one of your marvelous creations. Very cute! How did you manage to knit on such small toothpicks? That must have been very hard!

Just wanted you all to know that the "Teddy Bear Love" package went into the mail to Austin today. The tracking number is CE 469 216 529 CA. In the parcel I included a hand held game very similar to Tetris; two large bugs called Bug Racers with sticky wheels on the underside that race down windows or shiny painted surfaces; two word search books; a suduko "how to" book including some suduko games; a notepad, some pencils, an eraser and pencil sharpener; a book for Rabbit to read with a bookmark in it; and of course the blanket. The post office said she should get this parcel in three to five business days.

I've had a lot of people asking if it was wise to send a 5'7" boy a "baby" blanket, but my personal opinion is, no matter what his height, he is still only a 10 year old boy. I asked my 8-1/2 year old grandson what he thought and he said "the poor boy is going to love that blanket Gramma". There will be times when his Mom and/or Dad can't be there and he will be lonely and will need some comfort. Hopefully the blanket or some of these other things will make him feel loved.
