For years, I’ve been using a barley bag for a toe/neck warmer.
This old, faithful friend has warmed my bed on cold winter nights, soothed the ache in my neck and shoulders after long hours at the sewing machine, eased tummy cramps when I eat the wrong foods. It was a gift from one of my children a long time ago, and has been showing signs of age – barley (or whatever it is inside there) was threatening to spill out in some thread-bare places).
So I decided she needed a new cover – and got out the bag of selvedges:
It didn’t take long and she looks like new – now every time I heat her up, I’ll be reminded of various quilts and projects done over the years. Aaahhh – warm memories and soothing heat – what could be better!
Happy heating bags. Blessings, Peg
