I hope you've all had a very sweet holiday with loved ones.
Here's what I gave to my 24 year old son for Christmas.
A lovely friend named Merry gave me a bag full of Pendleton wool scraps last month.
I used the scraps almost exactly as they came out of the bag.
The wool is already heavy, so I didn't add backing or batting.
Pendleton Woolen Mills is based in Oregon, where I grew up.
I have fond memories of going to their factory store with my grandmother when I was little.
The company started weaving woolen blankets to trade with Native Americans over 100 years ago.
The symbols and colors carry meanings for various tribes.
I'm happy to say that my son was thrilled with his new blanket!
Wishing you all a very happy and creative new year.
I'm looking forward to seeing your starts, your finishes, your struggles and your successes.
