The temperature's dropping here, especially at night. Hot water bottles are essential, but they need covers to make them huggable. This one's from Sarah Dallas's Knitting. Nowhere near as pretty as the one in the book, which is a very serene lavender colour....
Thought I'd emphasize the brightness by photographing it on the most contrasting surface I could find, my un-ironed duvet cover.
And here it is looking strangely tortoise-like on my bed. (The cushion in the background is one of a set I painted.)
Despite all my minimalist ambitions, this is a bizarrely colourful and madly patterned house most of the time.
