Sewing

Using some of the lovely material I got from Mrs N..... I sewed some rectangles







I then filled them with wheat another friend had given me.....





I then sewed up the ends and there you have...



2 wheat bags!! Warm them up in the micro wave and they are better than a hot water bottle!!

I also made a much needed draft excluder for my front door



this is the original front door and has loads of cracks and gaps in it, I refuse to get rid of it! We do have a porch but the letter box lets in drafts, so hopefully this will go someway to helping cure the problem!!!!

I still haven't managed to up load my photo onto the side bar, I will keep trying though!

Wheat bag ? Never heard of them before. How long do they keep warm for ? At least they won't leak like hot water bottles used to when I used them as a child. Many a wet bed !

I am going to grow a ginger root plant.

They do need re-heating, I will try one right now and let you know!!
I have put some date stones into soak, but I definately fancy having a go at a ginger root!

Wheat bags are great for sore joints too, I have been known to put lavender in them as well.Great job Libby

Take care

Lovely Libby I have always wanted to have a go at those. Will have to see where I can get the wheat from when I go into town.

I've just heated one for 2 mins in the microwave and it lasted about 15 - 20 mins!!
Yes my friend who gave me the wheat, drys her lavender and adds that! I will be more organised and probably do that this year!!
