Hello, Sweden! Or I should say God dag, Sverige! Said with a horrible American accent, by the way. I tried, really I did, to learn to speak some Swedish when I visited my friend there. She laughed at me a LOT.
Laughter or not, I decided to create this Swedish Checkerboard bracelet after I chatted with my Swedish friend (hej, Maria, my Swedish dotter!) a few days ago. It's in honor of the Swedish flag. I've been thinking of my friend a lot lately because she broke the news to me that she'll be having a baby at the end of the year. She's soooooo excited, and I am also. I'm going to start looking for airfares so I can plan a visit there in the spring. It's an absolutely beautiful country, and I love visiting there; but I've been there in the winter. It's cold, and three hours of daylight just isn't enough for me. I want to go when the weather's just a bit warmer. :-) She'll understand.
