    Sausage and Ham anyone?

    I made my own tailor's ham and sausage.

    I stuffed it with wood shavings to give me a firm place to iron curves and such.

    and I also made a neck pillow, I can heat it in the microwave if I need a warm compress.

    great, what kind of wood shavings did you stuff it with?
    those things are sooo expensive in the store. I wonder why?
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I don't know why they are expensive nor what we paid for them but, we used to buy cedar chips for our boxer dog house in the winter. In a class we used crushed walnut shells from the pet store to stuff pincushions. Just a thought...

    The wood shavings are the kind you would put in a hamster or mouse cage. You can get a "bale" of it in the pet aisle
    at the grocery store, Walmart, Target or the pet store.

    Be careful in the microwave. Don't heat too long.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    I had those first two ones for years, never really used them and donated to Goodwill years ago. I hardly used tem and with just quilting, I knew I would never use them.
