Today I became the proud recipient of one of jacqui.c's Shawls, and I have to say I am overwhelmed by her kindness to me! It's just beautiful and the perfect colour - Cadbury's Purple *grin*.   It will be worn often, especially when on the PC as it's across the room from the log-burning stove. ThankYou jacqui.c!!

I know that there are other Catter shawl-makers and there will be other happy recipients of their kindness too. So, which other blessed Catters are in this elite club?

And I! A frequently nestled in, beautiful turquoise one that hangs within arms reach over the back of my big chair. Thank you, Jacqui!

And I haven't forgotten MMario either. I dearly wanted to find him a few ounces of qiviut, but the retail price, locally, is $84 an ounce- and I was told that it would take three or four packets to make a shawl.

I've had at least a couple of MMario's works of art pass through my hands. I have one now, and I remember sending one to my secret santa a few years back (Barb'ry)--that might have been more of a shoulder wrap (or a table runner) but it seems like I had a bigger one also. I can't remember now. Maybe MMario has kept track. The auction records only go back a year. Did I send a shawl to someone else? I'm drawing a blank.

Well, how many is that so far, that these two incredibly and generous Mudcatters have made and sent out to us all? They really add up, don't they?:->

I have a stunning green and purple soft one made by MMario and full of Mudcat love and hugs for my recovery from heart surgery. It came as a complete surprise, instigated by my sister, bet, and Alba!

This year, dear, sweet Jacqui made me a wonderful chenille shaw, another suprise(!)...in green (my fav. colour!) I still cannot figure out how a thing of such delicacy, with so many *deliberate* holes can be so warm.:->

I love them both and will always treasure them, not just for their physical beauty and the skills of their makers, but also for what they represent...friends, love, caring, our community. I feel blessed.

Thanks,

luvyakat

I have two from MMario - one, a gift and one won in a Mudcat auction that required me to set my alarm clock. I have two from Jacqui, both for which I traded jewelry stuff, which was not really of equal value to the shawls. (I suspect she was trying to let me save a bit of face.)

The shawlmaker's work is more than it seems,
The yarn is the stuff of wishes and dreams.
There's compassion and love in each delicate strand
Touched by the shawlmaker's hand.

I have a blue and white cotton shawl from Mmario and a cream-colored lap robe. The shawl somehow always falls perfectly around my shoulders.

I also have a multi-colored blue shawl in the shape of a swallowtail butterfly, knitted for me by Jennifer Woods who knows I love butterflies.

It really is amazing how much warmth they add. At Camp Ramblewood I wore all three at once sometimes. ;-)

I have a lovely lacey brown shawl from Jacqui which is draped over my dressing table mirror when I haven't got it on. Anazing...it hugs you when you just look at it.

I also have a fawny coloured crocheted loo roll cover that a friend's mother-in-law made and the friend gave me as a bathroom warming gift when I had a bathroom built on to my house years ago. (She WAS joking, though her mother-in-law didn't realize)

Love Lynne

I used to get the home-made Catters, but they were too expensive. Now I buy the machine-mades, in bulk packs, at Sam's Club. I didn't know I was supposed to put cosies on 'em though. Love to see THAT at Getaway-- Catter-cosies all in a row.

A beautiful natural cotton (or perhaps ecru?) shawl/table runner from MMario which if I remember correctly was a wedding present for me and Jack the Sailor (way back in '02).

I'm really glad I saw this thread - a good reminder that this is the right time of year to start wearing it again. I believe I will wear it to my next gallery opening.

I'm a very lucky Catter. I received a beautiful hug-shawl from Jacqui when I came out of hospital. Gorgeous blues - my fav colour.

Mine will emigrate to France to live in my old cottage in Lower Normandy. It will be much needed there and can be used by visiting Catters too. I can see myself wrapped in it and sitting in front of a roaring log fire with a glass of something nice. I'll raise a glass to the lovely Jacqui too.

Maybe we should all get together sometime and wear our shawls.

Don't know how I missed this one. I'm an early recipient- back in the autumn of '04, when I needed it most, a secret cabal of Mudcat carers sent me a lovely, brilliant green MMario creation. It still sits tucked next to my pillow and is the one (of all the shawls I own)that I reach for when reading in bed- it feels like a soft, warm embrace.

Folks, MMario has done it, again. I wrote to him last winter, during a very busy time, to ask if he would make a shawl for Night Owl and how much money he would need for the supplies, his time, etc. When her house burnt to the ground it was before the shawl thing really got started and she's had all kinds of other things come about which have kept her offline for several years. Anyway, our Gallant Gentleman that he is, MMario, offered to make her one gratis.

She is THRILLED with it. Perfect colour, design, softness, all those MMario specialities which we all love. And, a beautiful way for her to still feel connected and to feel the warmth and caring which she knew when she told us her story in her A Mudcatter's Thank You threads.

Thanks, again, MMario. You really are a wonder.

And, Jacqui, don't think I haven't thought of you, too, sweetie. Check your PMs. My Morgan had a delightful nap today wrapped in my shawl which you made, at his request. I'll take a picture next time!

Thanks, you two!!

Over a year since I looked at this lovely thread, listing dozens of happy shawl recipients from around the world, with shawl stories and photos, and loving messages, including from Katlaughing and 'Spaw. Down here in Oz, we've been having a very cold winter. Every day I've been wearing jacquic's beautiful, dark blue shawl around my neck and shoulders, and inside my coat. Thank you so much, jacqui, your beautiful gift is still being used and appreciated! xx

Back in 2009 when my wonderful friend B was dying, jacqui.c sent her a shawl. It didn't work, we all know shawls can't really cure ovarian cancer. But many, many thanks for trying.

I have a wonderful, long scarf that Jacqui made for me. Does that qualify me for membership in the club?

I've been the recipient of a wonderful dark mauve cotton shawl, a black/green/blue large wool shawl, a pink "broken arm!" sling alert, and a gorgeous soft blue scarf that I haven't yet sent a thank you for, though I've thought "thank you! thank you!" so many times.

Jacqui is a wonderful, generous, and talented lady and I'm so glad to be her friend.

Thanks for all the nice words. I do enjoy making the shawls and thinking about the various places where they now live.

Jacqui does exquisite work! I haven't done many comfort shawls in recent years - too busy trying to keep of with the baby and wedding gifts for various friends and family...

bad mmario....

On the contrary, those are great gifts in your family circle, Leo.

We had a question in another thread - are the shawls you've been designing knit or crochet? I think I saw a design recently posted on facebook.

I have the most beautiful Jacqui shawl soft blue, just like a gossamer web.It was in my secret Santa last Christmas, I will treasure it! At the moment I often pop it round mother's shoulders in the evening, it makes her smile !

thank you Jacqui

Jacqui made a beautiful scarf for my late wife, Ann, when she was first in hospital. It now belongs, with Jacqui's blessing, to my younger step-daughter in Singapore. It is well loved and still most appreciated. Jacqui if you're reading this thank you once more. Best regards from Charlie X
