Anyway, I needed to relax a little one evening after waking the dogs and before Adam got home and we started work on more of the preparations. We go through lots of pillows at our house. We like them firm and in no time, it seems, they are FLAT. We both really need new pillows again. This time, instead of adding more pillows to our ever growing stash, I decided to do some transplanting. Tucker had eaten the corner off one of the pillows when he was a puppy and I kept the pillow around anyway. (Still need to mend the pillowcase so it can get back into circulation.) That was the donor pillow.
I took Adam's pillow and cut a slit, large enough for my arm to get in there and move around in, in the blue band on the side. I took fluff and filled in the spots that were fluffless (is that a word?). Once the pillow was full again, I stitched up the hole with a whip stitch. Nothing fancy, or pretty...but it did the job.
Instead of buying new pillows, I'll just keep adding fluff from older pillows. I have a problem. I can't throw them away when they're still usable so this way, they actually will get used up without filling up a landfill...and saving us money at the same time.
Now, I just need to get mine done!
