Yo yo!

Some yo-yo pillows, found this summer.

This favorite star pillow is from a favorite cousin.

Well-worn old yo-yos of a pillowcover. Found two of these probably 10 years ago at an estate sale.

I wonder about the women who made these. Taking little scraps of fabric, cut into rounds, hemming them up and then pulling each one into a yo-yo. These days some of us use CDs as templates. They probably used a plate or a tin can. Wonder if they treasured these pillows as much as I do?
