= My life for the past 5 days. Luckily, before the horrendous medical condition of *&^%-ed up sinuses struck, I had the idea to sew up this adorable hot-water-bottle cover! It took 10 whole minutes [by which I mean ACTUALLY ten minutes, not the 'ten minutes' they tell you in craft books, which ends up being closer to 4 hours].
I'ts great for saving on heating costs. It's a soft wool-poly blend and is incredibly soft but strong. It also doesn't fray AT ALL which means you can leave the edges raw. Which, in my book, puts this project right between SCORE and saWEEET.
Then at a bargain store I found a mini (600cl) hot water bottle so I made one up for my sister! This will be my definitive way to find out if she actually reads my blog like she says she does... So Mad, if you are indeed reading this, I will mail it off to you shortly!
[EDIT: Seems like she doesn't. Well well well.... maybe I don't mail it off to her...]
It's the closest you can legally get to cozying up with a sheep. They have laws about these things up here ;)
