  8. Happy Birthday!!! Have been a follower for a little while now.
    I particularly loved the post about hot water bottles. It was a bit of a light bulb moment for me actually.
    We are travelling along the great ocean road late august and early september this year in our Jayco Swan campervan. My littlies will be 3 and not quite 3 (will be the weekend after we get home) and I was worried about keeping them warm.
    Hot Water bottles of course!!!! But I am going to make rice bags instead.
    So now I have wonderful plans to crocheted a couple of cute covers for them. Monsters, Aliens, Robots and Owls come to mind.
    Plus the other day I thought I might make some mini ones too to use as boo boo buddies!
    Thank you!!!!!
