We interrupt this Dala-Floda-feast to welcome a new member of the family.
My niece Hilma.
Isn´t she adorable with her black hair and cute profile?
We have waited a long time for her arrival – she was ten days late. Which was a bit lucky for me, because this baby blanket took quite a while to make.
Like so many times before the inspiration came from Norway and my friend Pinneguri who has made several beautiful baby blankets, or vogntepper as they call them in Norwegian. What a lovely tradition!
And what a coincidence that Hilma´s mother happened to have a favourite blanket when she was a little girl – a blanket that she took everywhere and that she couldn´t sleep without. In the end it was just a rag.
Now I hope that Hilma will love this blanket until it ends up as a rag.
