Ever since ibuprofen became a once a month thing, I've been thinking I should make a new heating pad. Maybe it will work for my sore neck and shoulder. Or it'll be as useful as my old one and I'll prop my Kindle against it when I'm reading at night. (There wasn't much else to do with it during the year without a microwave.)
Someone spilled a whole lot of rice on the kitchen floor last week. It suddenly wasn't good rice anymore and using it for a heating pad seemed a lot less sad then throwing it out ... Which left me with another decision. Should I use pretty fabric from my stash, or be practical and use a hunk of ugly stuff?
The pretty fabric won. I figure that I've still got enough to use for a wide border on a miniature quilt, so it was okay to take a square for this project.
