Ma's inventory pillow

Laundry inventory pillows were used in colonial time.

A straight pin was affixed to the appropriate number

beside each item sent for washing.

After the items were cleaned,

the pillow and pins helped to make sure

everything was accounted for. 

******

I decided to create a laundry pillow

in relation with Laura Ingalls's wardrobe .

Pattern available

Mary and Laura stayed by the fire ...

sewing their nine-patch quilt blocks.

*****

I imagined this pattern while reading this sentence in Laura's book

Little House in the Big Woods

Like Laura and her sisters, as soon as pioneer children could handle a needle,

they were taught to make nine-patch quilt blocks from nine squares of fabric

because they were simple to sew.

A new pattern available

HERE

Completed pillow, SOLD, thank you !

The only stupid thing with words is ...

the spelling of them

Laura Ingalls 

******

I love this quote by Laura Ingalls because I love reading and writing

and I am also my DH's proof reader so this sentence is very special to me ...

I think that I will work thoroughly on this theme ...

spelling bee, slate work ... I don't know for the moment ...
