Regretfully, I must report the blanket donation will not be taking place. The coordination has been flaky from the beginning, with delays in posting about it pending Save-an-Angel approval, to changed stories about whether Kendall was at home or hospitalized, to the final chapter in the book yesterday.

After several attempts to nail down a delivery time and place, it was finally agreed upon at 2PM Friday we would deliver the blanket to the hospital Saturday at 2PM, have a nurse present the blanket to Kendall, and have the nurse snap a picture for Rebecca (dukes_mom). At 3:30 Friday instead of sending the address to the hospital, and the room number, I got a note that said he may be coming home due to the holiday and that he had the worst night ever, not sleeping due to fluid on the lungs and suspected pneumonia. It was suggested I leave the blanket with the Save-an-Angel folks who would pass it on to Kendall and provide a picture. At that point we took a step back and questioned what hospital would send home a patient in that condition?

Bottom line, we had no way to verify Kendall actually existed as the story had changed many times throughout the 7 weeks we've been planning this. We only met the Save-an-angel folks once, and I could not in good faith hand over the blanket that had taken Rebecca so many hours to make without knowing for sure it would go where it was intended.

The blanket is being returned to Rebecca with sincere thanks for her time and generosity.

I'm very sorry, Rebecca. I truly feel bad for you. It was never my intent for something so good to go so wrong.

I know the world isn't all puppies and rainbows, but I don't know how someone could lie about cancer. I just hope that isn't the case.

Well I was gonna wait to post a picture after Kendall got the blanket, but I'll just post a picture now.

Here it is finished and backed. It is so heavy, it killed my arms holding it up haha.

I asked Shanna to get a picture from straight on

I forgot to add that I started Harry on April 6th, finished Ron on June 23rd and sewed the back on June 28th. So almost 4months of crazy work.

It barely fit in the large flat rate postage box haha. My post office lady had to force it in just so I could ship it. I have a picture of the box before it was sent out lol I wrapped it in tape everywhere just so it wouldn't explode on me.

It is the most amazing blanket! I wish everyone could see it in person. I believe all things happen for a reason. Something good will follow.

Hmm Orlando Bloom you say? Maybe, haha I didn't think about him. I use to have the biggest crush on him. Then Robert Pattinson came along and my world changed lol.

Right now I'm just working on some small projects, one is actually pit bull related. After I get some of these small projects done I'm gonna finish up the rest of the Hogwarts Bunch. There are still 5 to do, well actually more then that if I add in the others I found.
