Back in the day, ie when I was but a girl …(and NO Moo dinosaurs didn’t roam the earth when I was a child ~ but thanks for asking !) we didn’t have central heating, quilts were only to be found in hotels, and us mere mortals had sheets and blankets on our bed.
If you were poorly you were swaddled in a blanket on the sofa ..why go to bed you might miss something.
When I went out to play I was in charge of emergency supplies
Just some of the reasons why blankets rule …this can also be used as a list for why I knit / crochet soooo many blankets, in my mind blankets mean love ❤
