Sometimes We Just Need a Little Support!

Hey Mom's what's that?
Is it a bird?  A plane?  A giant bone shaped stuffie?
Mom said it's a pillow. Her new job has her at a desk all the time instead of being on her feet a lot so her neck is kinda sore, not being used to it.  So Dad (a mechanical engineer) made this pillow by cutting pieces of bone shaped fabric and sewing them together and stuffing it so it cradles and supports the neck for some couch napping or bedtime.

Dad will demonstrate before he takes me for my walk.

Come on Dad. . Walkies. . Walkies!

    Crikey Abby, your dad is a handy chappy... hope he didn't zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzt for too long and you got your walk!!! Happy Weekend all.... Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. Abby you just have to go over to Dad, stick a cold wet nose in his ear, and then lick his face! That'll wake him up.

  3. Your dad is pretty handy!
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  4. It's really comfy. I'm just not used to SITTING all day, and my back and neck are paying the price. I did smile at the fabric - little cups of coffee. Marrying an Eagle Scout/Engineer was probably the smartest thing I ever did although he DID put a plumbers candle on the cake he baked for me on my birthday last month as there weren't enough "little" candles for the big fifty "mumble mumble" birthday. :-)


  5. OMD...that looks very comfy!!! Your Mama really lucked out finding and engineer AND a good tailor!!
