I know the room well, and the general nature of the home. MMario, you are an artiste. Just go with your instincts, it will fit well. Your black and malachite would be just fine. And remember, it is the love that will keep her warm.

Go with your instincts,

Mick

Please if Anyone knows if Heather has allergies to any fiber or (for example) detests mohair or some other fiber please let us know.

She mentioned to me she doesn't normally CHOOSE blues for herself - but is told it is a good colour on her.

Kat mentioned black and malachite. (this could be really striking!)

Purples/pinks have been mentioned.

SRS has a skein of variagated that is blues and purples with gray.

the "artiste" in me leans towards the black/malachite - other opinions?

You are all quite wonderful. Lots of lovely PMs too.

I was just looking at Mudcat Photos. Heather is in there (Duckboots); one might assume she's wearing colors in them that she likes?

The last of the pix to load has Rick, shadowed, behind her, barely visible himself, peeking out from over her shoulder as she sits in full sun grinning like... a grin. I'm going to freeze that image on my mind: Rick always near her, and her grinning like that, knowing it, sitting in light.

Mmario, that's an excellent idea! Anyone who is interested in joining in on a coalition bid for a shawl for anudder Mudder, please PM me when Mmario adds one to the auction.

I haven't looked at pix yet,but I think the necklace I amde for Heather was with black onyx and malachite (green). I will double-check, though.

I sent one of MMario's shawls, a light weight one (can also work as a table runner) to Barb'ry at christmas, since I was her Secret Santa. It was very nice to be able to send her something of particular importance within the Mudcat community that also benefitted Mudcat itself. And she had met Leo during the year, adding another interesting level to the gift.

Handmade gifts, like Live Music, are best!

perhaps heather could be asked what she would prefer...
if she is not likely to wear a shawl but might be comoforted
by having a lapwarmer or bed-top small throw instead
---it could still be circular. and i think of heather as
inb the pink/purple family of colors...

kat - - re: shawls for those still with us that could use one - I have one almost ready to go in the auction;another one is under construction. Coalitions can always be formed to bid on a shawl in the auction and then designate it for someone else. Sort of double duty...

From a mathematical point of view, as interesting as a circle will be, the VOLUME of work involved is much greater, assuming the diameter of this circle is large enough that when the shawl is folded it stays put over her shoulders with the extra length down across her chest. Contrast this to a rectangle of the dimensions to go around the shoulders and stay in place because of the weight down the front. If you want this to get to the party of the first part sooner rather than later, a simple and elegant rectangle design might be best.

I really like the suggestion of a dark charcoal gray. It goes with everything. But I still have a few skeins of yarn here if you want to do a crazy-quilt kind of shawl.

That's a good point, Animaterra.

Not to make too much work for Leo, but I had another thought...maybe those who want to could also commission him to make some other shawls for other Mudcatters who are still with us, yet going through some pretty rough times? I can think of three, right now, whom I would love to wrap up in a Mudcat inspired shawl, too. Maybe others could help in the making AFTER we take care Heather.

just a thought,

By the way, Leo-et-al, as one who had a similar loss not six months ago, and received a beautiful shawl just two months later, I would advise to keep it fairly simple and get the shawl to Heather as soon as possible, while it's still cool up north, while her pain is still raw and she needs extra warmth inside and out.

Of course, on the other hand, summer evenings are cool, too, and the months go by and the phone calls and cards dwindle, and you still need reminders that you are loved. So it would work either way!

I'm filled with love for this wonderful community!

Love,

Allison

In speaking with Alba, today, she said there was a certain piece of artwork which came to mind because of this thread. I think this is the one she had in mind: blue clicky thing...I think it is beautiful and personifies the love and caring in this thread and the others. It is so appropriate that we speak of "threads" when "weaving" our love and concern for one another.

I like the circle design better (I just like abstract designs), but Heather may like the notes. I don't think she's allergic to anything except certain metals - no fibers that I know of.

Hmmmm...shawl by MMario, yarn by Carly, perhaps?
I think this is a wonderful idea.

Just a word on colors...

Those of us with who used to have brown hair, brown eyes and medium skin...we look AWFUL in light gray (grey). Sorry, Sorch, but it's a fact. As my hair turns gray, I find that I wear more gray, but it's a dark, charcoal gray.

Wonderful, special idea. Thank you Susan. Thank you Leo. Count me in.

Love the idea of lush fibers, Leo! Alpaca? Silk? That will have to wait on the allergy answer, though.

Love the idea of it being one of Rick's songs, Kat. My other thought was Jerry Rasmussen's "Handful of Songs," which Rick sings so beautifully on his "Lifeline" CD. That's a strong Mudcat connection, too. (It's not what you leave, it's the joy of remembering. All I can leave you is a handful of songs.")

Love the idea of it being a circle.

Let us all know about the money thing.

What a community this is!

I believe WYSIWYG has some thoughts in mind for monatary contributions and how to handle them.

Several people have mentioned materials they are willing to contribute as well - That needs to wait a bit while we get confirmation on allergies and preferances or lack thereof, and figure out a colour scheme - unless we go patchwork quiltish - which would make the circle idea hard and also the music.
