Today’s colour was Kelly Green. This was actually chosen as a pure coincidence but has great meaning for both the recipient of this blanket and myself. Towards the end of last year we said good bye to a good friend and fellow mom of multiples Kelly after a hard battle with an aggressive cancer. She was an inspiration and an amazing friend and mother.
I love that her name has popped up in this project. A lovely reminder that even though someone may leave you in body their spirit is always there. So in every green row there is a little bit more love stitched in.
We will always miss Kelly but we will also always remember the good times, the inspirational words she shared with us and the time spent with her either in person or online. This colour, so bright and warm is absolutely the perfect representation of this for my friend. And that it was chosen purely by coincidence.
There is something highly appropriate about the colour green standing for a person who has passed on. Green is for growth and life and change, a reminder that we need to continue on in her stead. That we have the additional task to make this world brighter just as she did and would want us to.
