How much can a blanket cover?

I love how the daily posts select words that have more than one meaning in fact blanket covers even more than the mind can comprehend. In the new TV series Genius” Einstein in referencing the cosmos made a blanket inference in relation to time, relativity, and space. But bringing it back down to earth a salesman loves to hear his customer issue a “blanket purchase order” that covers all their needs in relation to his product.

Salesmen, lawyers, and other professionals use the blanket term sometimes daily so it is a hardworking expression that covers more territory than Texas. Typically most of us do have finite limits for blankets in size. There are specific sizes for a king, queen, and full-size beds and of course, there are the ever popular smaller “throw” blankets for snuggling under while sitting in your easy chair or even keeping warm outside around a campfire.

My featured picture is one of a handmade unique size woven version made for me by my Mother. It boggles my mind on how much time and how tedious it must be to create something like this. That’s my take for I’ve never woven anything then again I’ve built hundreds or thousands of cabinets which also takes time and like the blanket, you have a finished product made with your own hands to show for it.

In almost every sector of most of the products we use every day, the handmade versions are being replaced by machines mass production in factories. Still, many of us can appreciate the quality of something that’s handmade, just thinking of the quality and care that went into making the end result. Salute to the craftsmen and craftswomen out there.
