Gondring, I'd love to see it!

 

Faelene, your hexagons look fine to me. Your stitches are very even. When you said they looked crappy I was picturing a huge knotted mess :P

I think it is beautiful considering the circumstance under which it was written. You seriously brought me to tears. I am sure RJ is smiling down you and your kind words. It has a Jordan essence to it. Great work.

 

One thing we can all take comfort in is each other. We fans are not alone, and at least RJ's books will remain. We can still hear his laughter, feel his sorrow, and visit his soul through his books. Take care.

My heart goes out to Harriet and the rest of RJ's family.

 

I know that from his place in heaven, he can see how much he touched us all, and is smiling down on us.

Hello.  I think this is a great idea as a gift for Harriet.  I've lurked here at Dragonmount.com for some time but finally registered just to see if y'all still need help with this project.  I have 35+ years crochet experience so I think I could be some help.

We’ve lost a great writer and a great man.

 

With his passing there’s so much less talent, creativity and kindness left in the world.

 

My condolences to his family and friends.

 

Rest in Peace, RJ.

My deepest sympathies to Mr Rigney's family. I've been an avid reader of the Wheel of Time series for over half my life now and have enjoyed every single book. I just did the math tonight and realised it's been about 16years since I picked up the first book and even though the earlier books are slightly tattered or torn now, they still hold pride of place on my bookshelf. RJ has and will always remain my favourite author. I will truely mourn the loss of him as I am sure many will also. But I would also like to thank him for all the wonderful years of reading he gave us.

Rest In Peace RJ

You'll remain in our hearts always.

Thanks Zardi, I just wasn't sure exactly what they were supposed to look like. I know, I know . . . a hexagon. . . but they were lookin' blobby to me. :P

We want to have the whole thing finished in time for Christmas, but of course, neph has to have time to assemble the whole thing. There isn't a definite deadline yet.

 

You can use any colors you want :)

This is a great idea! I am a musician too but don't do the Celtic thing. I think you're right though - that genre is quite fitting for a tribute to RJ!

 

I look forward to hearing your stuff too.

For the last 3 days, I've had the song "Dust in the Wind" stuck in my head. Its bizzare to, I haven't heard it in a good 4 months! And the last time I heard it, was Wil Ferrel in Old School...

And with RJ passing a week ago, I put 2 and 2 together and made a RJ Tribute Video. I don't really consider it finished, but it may as well be finished. (I need to find a video of RJ at some of his book signings to really complete it.)

I cannot recall ever being so sad at a non family member dying as I do now.  Shock, and empty is how I feel.  Robert Jordan, has been a part of my life for at least 12 years,I am so sad at his passing.

 

 

To Robert, You will certianly always remain a part of mine, as well as many other lives here in this world.  I am sad that you had to wake from the dream we are in.
