Cooling neckerchiefs


I have been making these cooling scarves lately.  The little bio gel beads grow to the size of marbles when soaked for a few hours. I then insert them into the neckerchief which you can wrap around your neck to keep cool. I tried the wrist bands this morning.  We'll see who they fit.



I may have enough blocks pieced together for this quilt. I'm not sure about  the final arrangement. I could have the light borders in the middle and dark toward the edges or vice versa. Right now it is totally random except that I tried to have light against dark and no matching middle touching. It will probably be about a double bed size, although I have lots of fabric left so you never know.

For some reason the words wouldn't appear in this post...They were there on the page when I composed it. Strange. I'll add them later I guess...

Joyce - I got 'the words' in my reader, but don't see them on your blog. Strange, indeed. Anyway...as soon as I saw this I went running to my drawer where I just knew I had some of those gel beads...hmmm. Not there, so I must have gotten rid of them.

Love the quilt! I'd go random in the layout. If I had more fabric, I'd just keep going and make it a queen size.
