Hot bots

My list of Christmas makes was a cushion for my MIL which I’m not sure I’m actually going to make or not yet, two sew together bags and six hot water bottle covers from this tutorial by Jude. If I can slip a finished bear quilt in this timeframe too that would be excellent.

Well some progress has been made and it’s not even December yet, yeah!

Six hot water bottles all done, some pieced, others with decorative stitches. The pieced ones were made with kindly gifted mini charm packs sent to me with my Starbucks Banff mug from the lovely Leanne. She wouldn’t even let me pay for the mug that I’d overlooked- thanks to her I have a full collection for our trip this year.

We’re off again in June, I know there’s a Toronto mug, but does anyone know if there’s an Ottawa one? If so then I’m getting both!

P.S. Bear quilt underway – Hank has possibly eaten my quarter inch foot so progress on anything that requires accurate pieced seams is now postponed until further notice…
