Heating pad covers

I don't know why people aren't talking about heating pad covers more. I've decided I'll need several to arrange on all the furniture where I find myself after an afternoon in the studio. I went through the armoire and found two possibilities.

One is a pattern from Eleanor Kent named Tan Diamond which I did up in a nice strong red. Originally I thought this would become a pizza cozy - because I hate a luscious pizza going cold on the walk home. The design reminds me of the potters' wheel radiating warmth into my shoulders.

The other piece is a swatch from a Gee's Bend blanket. It's tranquil and soft, but those black stripes mean business.

I'm also thinking about those long pillows filled with rice that go in the microwave and wrap around your neck. I wonder how long they stay warm?

You kill me!

Yes, there's no accounting for people. Do you think you'll toughen up and be less achy after you get used to potting?

The pizza piece is just STUNNING. xox Kay
