That is THE MOST BEAUTIFUL swift around, you are right!
How sweet of your MIL to paint it with flowers and leaves!

I like this swift better than the standard wooden swift that is huge, cumbersome and awkward to store! And does not 'operate' perfectly.

Yarn swift
I love the yarn swift your husband made. I know mine will gladly attempt one for me (although it will not be beautifully painted) since he's the one who impersonates a yarn swift in out house!!! I am new to this forum and am loving everything I have found. Thanks so much.

Wow, beautiful and practical! Can't beat that! Your husband and MIL could have a nice little business selling these...

That's pretty! The design your m-i-l painted on it makes the whole thing unique. She's a very talented painter. You must love to use it too; I know I would.

Angie, you have a very talented family! That has to be the prettiest swift I've ever seen.

How lucky you are to have such a lovely swift to work with - and it was all in the family, too!
Love it!
