Things have been very quiet around here lately. Fee has been out of town again, the Christmas rush and gatherings are past, and I thought I'd be busy sewing again. Not the case, however.

Oh, I've done a few finishing details on things, and a bit of embroidery, and - of all things- a cover for the heating pad. Fee's back was bothering him over the holidays, and he'd drag out the heating pad each evening trying to ease the discomfort while watching television. I got tired of looking at the sad blue cover, and added that to a list of the many projects I want to do.

Today, as I folded and straightened up some fabric, I saw this bit that would work for the cover and stopped the folding to make the cover. Took no time at all and was something I could cross of the list.I can assure you it looks much better. :0
One of my favorite gifts this Christmas was from my lovely nieces -- one of Lainie's Ladies with one of my most loved quotes, if you are fond of Louisa May Alcott, you probably recognize it. I've posted this picture on my book blog as well.
