Pendleton Blankets - A Circle Completed
It took almost a century, but Pendleton Woolen Mills completed a Circle. It began with designs inspired by their customers. Now the customers are the designers.
Oh how I salivate over Pendleton blankets! Gazing through their catalogue, I've never been able to pick just one. The artistry, the quality, oh my, the wool! Living in the Deep South, their beautiful blankets might never be used. With no wall space large enough to adorn, I'm limited to my catalogue, spotted with a bit of drool. These blankets are family treasures, each with its own story.
Do you own one? Please drop by our forum and share its story. We'll also have more information on the Native artists who have worked with Pendleton. Here's the link to the forum. Hope to see you there soon!
BREAKING NEWS: We have two red shouldered hawk chicks in the nest in our yard! They are so cute and the first round of baby pictures are on the forum. We just saw the 2nd one today and will have more photos shortly. The hawks are with us year round and these little ones are going to need names. Any suggestions?
As always, your comments are so very much appreciated. I look forward to each one. Know a Pendleton fan? Please share this email with them. Until next week, it might be too warm for a blanket, but
Walk in Beauty and Balance
