> Aquifer (n.): an underground layer of rock or earth which holds groundwater.

Even though their value isn’t always readily seen on the surface, aquifers hold precious water;

They are a source of refreshment for those who come in contact with them.

This pattern is dedicated to the people who are aquifers –

They have great depth and give freely to those who need them.

This particular blanket was designed for my sister in law,

Who is an “aquifer” in my life –

She gives freely and abundantly of her love and life to everyone around her.

This blanket is for one of a set of surprise twins she is expecting.

I hope this project refreshes and invigorates you,

Inspiring you to love and give to those in your life who need it.
