It went straight into the washing machine as soon as I got home, then spent two hours in the dryer with a few drops of lavender oil and was soon fluffed up and sweet smelling.
I had been looking for a quilt for our leather sofa for some time. When we purchased it, we were persuaded that it was perfect for all seasons, but that is not strictly true ~ it is cold to sit on in winter and hot and sticky in summer and yes, it is real leather!
It proved to be the perfect fit ~ it is actually a similar colour to the sofa, which is a creamy/beige leather, so it matches our existing furniture. And in case I want to know whether to venture outdoors, I also found this German-made barometer ~ another $6.00 bargain, which polished up beautifully and is now hanging on the wall in the hall.
