SWEDISH WEAVING, THANK YOU, AND A QUESTION!
The photos in this post are from the blanket I am making for youngest DD. It is my current swedish weaving project. I have made a lavender one for oldest DD and a brown one for my son...and each got their blanket on their Birthday this year....technically I don't have to finish this one until youngest DD's Birthday in July, but I will have it done by mid April probably and since she knows about it...I'll give it to her. I've also made a couple for our family room, and I have another on the back of my stitching chair...as well MIL got one for Christmas and neice got one for her Birthday last year....see a pattern here???? LOL Oldest DD requested that I make one for her boyfriend for Christmas this year, so I will. My cousin brings back the monk cloth from Florida for myself and another cousin...she gets it much cheaper than here in Canada. This is what we do weekly at BLANKET CLUB..(well we also eat and chat).
The second part of this post is a "THANK YOU" to all that have left comments on my blog! I LOVE seeing them and greatly appreciate each and every one!!
Thirdly, a random question that I will pose to each of you that read this, and if you have a comment on it...I'd love to hear. I have a set of "Golden Treasury of Knowledge" junior encyclopedias that I got many MANY years ago from my grandmother.
These pose no real use in todays world with computers..etc...they have been on a shelf in youngest DD's closet for quite some time...and I have put them in a rubbermaid container this morning....my question...what do I do...do I toss them? Do I keep them? If I keep them, what would be the value of them other than the fact that my grandmother gave them to me? Your opinions for or against keeping would be appreciated!!!!
Have a great day everyone!
