Early post today

I'm up early as usual, the dogs get me up early.  It is stormy out, thunder and lightning, which the dogs hate.  I have fasting blood work today, so I'm trying not to think about breakfast which I usually eat early too.  Test isn't until 8:30am so it seems like such a long time to wait.

I worked on the t-shirt quilt for my daughter yesterday while watching football, and made more progress than I thought I would.

 I have also been researching  how to wash feather/down pillows.  I inherited all of the feather pillows in our family when my grandmother, and then mom passed away.  Some of them are looking pretty bad, and not smelling too good either.  Many places recommend washing them in a front loader, which means I'd have to go to the laundromat.  My home washer is a top loader.  Even though I'd check for weak spots in the pillow ticking and put on a pillow cover, I'd be so afraid to lose all the feathers in someone's commercial washer if something were to happen.  I'm going to do more research while I wait for some good weather again.  I know that drying them thoroughly is important, and I'd like to hang them outside when we have few good dry days.
