Last 2 days I was at a friends home, on the countryside. We enjoyed walking, watching movies, baking cakes, preparing dinner and do some crocheting. We had a nice time.
I’m working on my own Dowry. I’m always so impressed by the story that girls start to work on their dowry when they are very young. They learn how to do embroideries, crocheting, knittings, … so they can make a beautiful treasure for when they are going to marry. I even heard that ‘how better, and how more refined, the embroideries are, how better wife you might be. ‘
Don’t worry, I’m not going to marry, first have to find a man who I might love. But I think it’s a beautiful idea to make a box filled with handmade blankets, rugs, …. to use as a couple. A box of love, handmade. It’s also a nice gift, and reminder, for my children (if I might have some). A family hairloom.
I started with my first item for the dowry, a white crocheted blanket.
