Cherry Pit Warming Pillow

In my family, I'm notorious for starting projects and then never finishing them. I disagree! I just sometimes have a bit of a 'maturing' phase built in. Yeah, so sometimes, that's years. I have that in common with good scotch.
One of those projects needed to be finished today - I woke up with a massive kink in my neck that is so painful and did not respond well to exercise. Then I remembered the bag of cherry pits that was sitting around since our enormous cherry jamming session last summer. I had washed, boiled, washed some more, and then dried those pits. And then put them in a paper bag and forgot all about them....

Today, the pain in my neck reminded me, and I found a piece of my favorite flannel, and said brown paper bag. As so often, finishing this particular project took only a few minutes (you can see I machine stitched the pillow closed, I wasn't going to rely on hand-stitching to keep the cherry pits in place reliably) and now I'm sitting on the sofa with warm cherry pits soothing my sore spot. Aaahhh.
