Hot Water Bottle Cozy.

The temperature high yesterday was 16 degrees.  I'd like to think the office was closed in observance of my birthday. Really, it was because of the bad weather. I spent the afternoon making a cozy for my hot water bottle.
They get rather hot on their own. If you're not careful, you can even burn yourself! It's good to have a layer between your skin and the water bottle. Less burning, more toasty~
I made a simple drawstring pouch with a terry lining. It was a lot easier than I thought to line the interior of the pouch. It gave the pouch a some structure and padding to prevent any burning.

Hope everyone is staying warm!

Celebration cookies for me.

I'm celebrating a birthday today. Party will be on Saturday. I made festive Oreos as a giveaway for my party guests using THIS recipe. I think next time I will roll the dough out and cut out shapes with a cookie cutter instead of slicing a log. Makes for prettier looking cookies.
