Grandmother's Pillow, Restored

This pillow belonged on my Grandmother's bed.

I have had this pillow tucked away in a drawer, waiting to be fixed, for years.  The back of the pillow was ripped open and the stuffing a sort of disintegrated lump.

I replaced the stuffing with fresh, fluffy wool roving, tucking in a homemade lavender sachet.  Then I carefully restitched the back and set on the bed for Valentine's day: it lives there still.
