I've had a problem with my pillow for ages, and it's very annoying. About time I thought of a solution. It's got real feathers in it, lovely and soft when fluffed up with a good pummelling, but as the night goes on my head sinks lower and lower into it and all the stuffing is moved to the ends. It finishes up like a gigantic pair of ear muffs. I am fed up of having to sit up in bed and give it a good bash two or three times a night to restore it to it's original height.
Seems to me that the pillow is too big for the amount of feathers, there are not enough to fill it. As I haven't got any feathers to add, then I need to reduce the size of the cover. Clever eh, ha ha. So I shook the pillow so the feathers fell to one end, and made a seam with the machine, three inches away from the end. Therefore making the pillow smaller.
Magic, one fluffy pillow. Let's hope it stays like that all night long, I'll let you know tomorrow. You could probably do the same with any pillow with any stuffing. They do tend to go flat after a while. Give it a whirl if you have any well used flat old pillows, maybe you'll get another year out of them. This is my top money saving tip for today.
I am slowly getting round to looking at your blogs, here are a few of the links.
My friend Dibble has recently started a blog, I say friend but we have only ever met on www.walkingforum.co.uk I feel like I already know her quite well. She has some lovely pics of the Lake District where she is lucky enough to live.

would love to be as dedicated to frugal blogging as some of my fellow bloggers but personally, I find that writing about lots of different things on my blog keeps it fun for me to write.

Kitty news. We have recently rehomed a cat which has been in our care for about eight months. Bow is a long haired pretty pussy who can be a bit of a handfull, she likes to be in charge and tells you so. Luckily someone came along to offer her a home in the perfect environment. A house in a very small village, middle aged couple, she will be the only cat, and will have the run of the house and garden. Suits her down to the ground. No doubt she will be setting her own ground rules, and the new owners will soon become her slaves, ha ha. We are pleased she has a new home.
Thank you for reading, off to do a bit more painting, the new masterpiece is coming along nicely.
