It has been a tradition that my son and I attend the Scandinavian Festival in Portland every December. This year he is traveling and in Thailand. But my husband had the day off and he said he'd celebrate my heritage with me. I love this Swedish dress pocket. That design looks like something we would see now although this is vintage. It was so wonderful and vibrant. (and a little humble too!)
Hubby wasn't thrilled but he did it anyway!
Waiting in line to get in we were greeted by lovely Christmas music.
I don't remember seeing them weaving and spinning in the past.
The dancing is always a favorite. It is great they are keeping tradition alive with the younger generation.
There are vendors and my favorites have vintage Scandinavian items like this child's bonnet. The sewing is far from perfect, but it is so precious! (like some of our quilts!)
Near where we parked was an estate/antique store so we dropped by for a quick look-around
I can't say I've ever seen rolly-polly babies like this on a quilt. I thought they were pretty silly.
Have a wonderful Wednesday, my friends.
