Thread Name: A Very Special Shawl
Subject: A Very Special MMario Shawl
I know a lot of us are feeling that helpless feeling that we want so badly to be able to DO something for Heather Fielding. Like me, you may be at a loss to know what that is.... so I have asked MMario to serve as representative for Mudcatters, to make a special shawl from us, for Heather Fielding. He has consented to begin on this as a group gift, to make the hugs we cannot offer her in person, but a shawlful of hugs she can wrap herself in... make the comfort tangible, deeper than words we can offer.

Of course I have no authority to have asked him this on "everyone's" behalf, but think about it. Who knows and accurately loves so many Catters? Who else is consistently loving toward all, and sees everyone's best? Who else has a heart big enough to hold each of us, and Heather, together in his heart, one by one, stitch by stitch, and "knit" us together in selfless love? I can't think of a better messenger of our love, than my friend (and many of yours), Leo.

For this shawl, MMario will do a piece for each person who posts "count me in," representing and focusing each individual's care for her as he works on it...

See? It's all about connections, stitch by stitch. It may become quite large..... it might go to festivals and stuff where Catters are, for a row here, a row there......

Leo, thank you. I hope you have a wonderful experience in this.
