Hello and Happy Monday!
I had a question from Margo last week about an afghan that she had noticed in a photo. Sadly, I have no idea of the pattern and I was wondering if any of you may be able to help decode it. I believe it is crochet – I am a terrible crocheter and wouldn’t know it if it hit me in the face.
I love this blanket. It was made by my great grandmother, Edna Hilchey. She ran the family dairy farm and was the post mistress in her small village in Nova Scotia. I was only lucky enough to meet her once, but I feel so happy that I have this hand made treasure from her. My mother says that she made this in her 90’s – may I be so lucky to have the dexterity and eyesight to do the same! There have been many, many naps on the couch under this lovely warm thing and I think that would have made her very happy. I washed it this morning and am drying it on the bed – so you can see its full glory.
Normally it stays on our couch within reach. Good thing, because this was our weather this weekend….
It’s election day in Canada today, I have plans to watch the results this evening – it’s been a terribly long, divisive, mud slinging campaign. I look forward to it being over, and hopefully our country can pull together and improve our behaviour.
