Vintage gifts circa 1972

Daisy flower blanket

These beautiful blankets were made by my mum when she was waiting to have me. She was in hospital for at least six weeks to ‘rest’ but spent all her time knitting and crocheting this and the one below. They have both been kept so carefully and are as perfect as the day they were made. Aren’t we lucky?!

Vintage daisy blanket

This was to go in the rocking cradle that my dad made and to match the yellow, white and black Marimekko blinds mum made. I’ll photograph them one day when I’m back home. They still look good after all these years.
