What About the Weighted Blankets?

A quiet calm.
A heavy stillness.
With my father dead, and my husband often gone, I have longed for a moment of clear, still, peace.
Last year has had me flailing helplessly like an unwrapped infant.
Yearning for a simple embrace, warm, encompassing, undemanding.
Soft constant pressure.
A weighted blanket.

Since stumbling upon the idea of weighted therapy I have been fascinated.
DandelionMama has a good tutorial if you would like to make a weighted blanket.


  1. This speaks to me on so many levels...

  2. I've been thinking a bit about your weighted blanket idea -I think it's brilliant. Thanks for the link to the tutorial. Great Aussie photos too xo
