Carole's Pillow

I don’t know why its called Spring Cleaning, because I’ve been doing it all week. I washed all of our light couch covers and assorted quilts and pillows and put them away, bringing out the darker colors for fall. This pillow was designed and stitched by my Aunt Carole sometime in the 1970s. It’s one of my favorite things. I washed it in Soak wool wash and it brightened considerably. One thing about Soak–the directions say not to rinse, but I always do, and I always find lots more dirt comes out while rinsing.

    I remember those. Your cousin Johanna wishes her mother had done some for her! Nice to see that they’re still appreciated.

    I also do the seasonal change and cleaning. I attribute it to having a small house and a large art collection. But I love changing textiles, art and bric a brac with each season.

    I guess I’d better get some new couch pillows!
