Blessing Baby Blanket Complete and Shipped

For some reason, the computer would not let me make a post last night, but here is the blanket moments before I raced off to FedEx for a Monday delivery on the East Coast.

The finished measurements are 40″ x 64″ plus fringe. My plan had been to hem the fringed edges and cut the length down to finish at 48″ as requested by mother. I wove the extra length because there was extra warp. I was planning to present a small woven strip to each of the grandmothers. However, everyone who saw the blanket insisted I send it as is—at least for now with the idea that I could always cut and hem it later and the parents should see the whole piece.

The picture was taken by my new across the street neighbor–

Now to unpack and set up my “office”, work on back orders, and get ready for a Turned Weft Ikat Workshop in 2 weeks in Ohio.

And of course—weave
