For this eighth day of #historyinherhands , I offer this soapstone. Soap stones could be placed near the fire, either in the hearth or upon the stove, to warm. Then placed in the bed while wrapped in cloth.

This was a challenging theme word of the day. I can tell you from experience soapstones such as this work nicely. I used to keep on in the oven to warm by the pilot light. It would warm my bed enough to keep me comfortable until morning.
