warm hands


As I told you both recently I have been walking
and the early mornings have been freezing!


So being the clever chick I am I made myself some handwarmers.


These are just 10cm squares of scraps stitched together .
Leave an opening , turn them out and fill with rice .


Pop two in the microwave for a minute before you go out.
They stay warm for about 20 minutes by which time
I 'm nicely warmed up from walking anyway .
I made a few because I might need to throw one at a cow
or leave them in the car so I have some spare.
You can also put these in the freezer for little ice packs too .

Do you walk or excercise?
Do you throw things at cows ?
Have you had a great week ?

Far too nice for throwing at cows unless they throw them back.

Could be very handy for walking to school through the fog and frost!

Gorgeous fabrics. What a clever clogs you are! I want to exercise but not enough to make it a daily priority. But I'm working on it.

Great idea Clare.

I haven't thrown anything at a cow in ages.

What a great idea. I didn't realise you could use rice as a warmer.
I haven't thrown anything at a cow. Although I think we could do to purchase one, my son drinks milk by the bucket load.

Hi Clare, I do walk almost everyday with my dogs (depending on whether I am at work or not) but never see any cows! I don't need your hand warmers but I may have to make some for my husband as he walks to catch the bus very early in the morning and feels the cold! Great Idea.

No, I don't throw things at cows, but if I had any cows near me these would be my throw thingies of choice. Love them.

Hi Clare This could be me walking. We have been down to -5 this winter. I put buckwheat in my heatpacks but rice would probably be cheaper. Sharyn
