Hot water bottle love....

It has been a bit chilly in these parts with ice and freezing fog but I love this time of year.I like to come home light the woodburner and the cinnamon candles( so you can't see the squalor that is engulfing my house now I'm back at school and still living with three men and writing school reports!!!!!!!) However,girls we must cosy up and what better way to do it than turning off the central heating in a fit of frugality -Oh,okay, turning it down a notch and hugging a hot water bottle.I love them.Does anyone out there remember Walter Hottle bottle and Harold Hare in the Playhour comic?(Don't know where that came from)
                            The above two were made from vintage blankets.
 I am so loving this gorgeous russian doll hottie available from my online shop
and her little sister the hand warmer.......
Also the first thing I do before the crossword, one episode of Scrubs and a cappucino is put on my slippers.I love these Lisbeth Dahl crocheted beauties also available online....
Oh an I nearly forgot.Further distractions from my reports....
A little disappointing this year, as last year I feel.I prefer Homes and Antiques which has some brilliant ideas for thrifty but unusual presents.I will post about this soon.
                                                 New wool for cushions......
This scarf is from Monsoon for children and belongs to one of our four year olds and I love it and am desperately trying to work out how to make it.I love the colour combination..
Have to get back to my reports so hope you are all feeling well and not getting too despondent.It's nearly the weekend.
Much love Anne x

Loving the Hot Water Bottle Covers - and I`m going out tomorrow to buy a ton of grey wool - I love that scarf and have just seen your sister`s granny stripe blanket on her blog - grey is definitely the order of the day!Thanks for sharing, Anne.

You can't beat a good hottie, Anne, though I'm mighty fond of my electric blanket at the cottage, too, just not quite so portable. I'm sitting here at the computer now with my first ever handmade quilt on my knee, a proper granny, but I'm mighty warm! Not long 'til the Christmas break...

You're the second person to say they are disappointed, third with myself. I enjoyed the country homes one way more. I'll have to get the homes and antiques one, although they do have it in the library.

Darling hot waterbottle covers very clever idea.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, Carolyn :)
