OK...there is a reason I love chenille blankets. First, how gorgeous are they? Second, my Mom always tells this story about her grandparents who had a chenille blanket on their guest bed. Her and her cousin would jump up and down and make the round chenille circles 'hop' around and yell "cookies." She always reminds her cousin of this traditional jumping get togehter when we get together. I knew I wanted to created a little throw for my craft room. The place where I put my seat is right next to the window, which means it gets a little chilly during both days of winter here in Texas.
In the mean time, I'll enjoy wrapping this around myself during that arctic blast this year, and then hanging it on the back of my chair the other 364 days.
