Keeping those I love warm (part one).....


Inspired by this tutorial, I bought a hot water bottle and crocheted a cover for my mother as a gift. There had to be adjustments made for the size of my hot water bottle but I love how it turned out. I added a snowman and white lacy edge as my mother is a snowman collector. Jos had to travel to California last week and found it was cheaper for his ticket to stopover in Ohio. He played Santa early and delivered it for me as a little "just because" gift.

  3. It is certainly a gift filled with Love, no not water yet. LOL. Thank you for making it and Jos for delivering it. We enjoyed our weekend with him. It went very fast though.
    Love you, Mom

  5. So pretty. I have seen these around blogland...I just may make one someday. Oh, how great minds think alike...LOL. I just finished posting about your SAL Christmas ornaments from 2009. I am finally going to get them all done and hung on our tree this year. I am sooooo very grateful you have kept all your wonderful blogs up. You were among the first bloggers I started reading and following. You are always such an inspiration Heidi.

    I do hope all is well with you.
    blessings, jill

  8. I loved having a hot water bottle tucked in the sheets on a cold winters night especially at my feet. This will be cozy.

  9. Hi Heidi,

    Wow, that looks FANTASTIC! I love the santa stitched on it, and how lovely of you to make it for your mum as a gift. As I type this, I have one on my lap. I am a hot water bottle addict I think, and am planning on making a couple more this year just for me!

    Take care and have a super week!
