Sky Above Clouds...Washrag!
Washrag after washrag, those slip stitch pillows were reminding me of something, but what? I sat knitting and reminiscing and trying to access the memory that would reveal all. A little girl in her plaid Catholic school uniform climbing a wide, white stairway...was it Heaven? No, wrong soundtrak...that's it! Those pillows reminded me of the clouds in this (http://www.artic.edu/artaccess/AA_Modern/pages/MOD_4.shtml#--scroll down) incomparable piece at the Art Institute of Chicago were I spend many afternoons as a youngster.
This celestial dishrag is in the Gardiner Collection and does proud duty wiping Cheeto crumbs off the kitchen counter.
Wow, I wouldn't know whether to wash dishes with it, or frame it!
