THE PERFECT MIX – A HAND SEWED GIFT – CATNIP TOYS- PINEAPPLE REVISITED

HELLO,

THE PERFECT MIX

BY Diane Phillips

A couple of weeks ago I received a package in the mail from my childhood friend, Francine.   She had ordered the Make a Mix series on the internet from reading my blog  and thought I would like her favorite mix book called THE PERFECT MIX.  I just love it.

I love having mixes.  I can make the mixes when I have the time, use the freshest ingredients and I do know what is in them.  All these things are so important in  today’s fast paced life.   Besides using them for myself I have found many in the book that would make great presents or a house gift when visiting someone.   It’s a gift without a lot of cost but a gift of time and thoughtfulness of the giver..  I love the Hot Chocolate Mix and The Scone Mix, they are on my list of things to make for presents.

THE HAND SEWED GIFT

Kellie, a follower of my blog and I have been e-mailing each other.    I sent her my sock pattern and she is making a pair.  I received this beautiful hand sewed  hanging and in my favorite colors too.  I admire anyone who does this delicate hand-sewing.  I am now looking for just the right place to put it so that I can enjoy it every day.

CATNIP TOYS

I have this old jar belonging to my Grandmother in the kitchen.  I keep the catnip toys that I have made that are two small or that have some small defects in them  there.  I pass these out when friends come to visit or my kitties need  a treat.  The jar is  almost empty so its time to make more.  I have gotten out my trusty sewing machine and will make some this afternoon.

THE PINEAPPLE 

The pineapple is drying out if only Sam would leave it alone.  It smells wonderful too.  Make one if you can.

P1010753 I got Ollie to the vets it was a huge job and he went screaming but groggy.  They will check him out this afternoon.  I will let you know tomorrow how he does.

Thank you for reading my blog and hope you have a wonderful day.

So glad you got Ollie to the vet. That was no easy task sounds like. Glad the pin pillow made the voyage safely. Thanks so much for the kind words, friend.
