Is everyone getting ready for Thanksgiving?? I always have it, so I had better get ready.lol.
Does anyone like sugar scrubs? I found several recipes, but didn't really want to hunt down and/or order all of the essential oils, etc.. some of the recipes have several ingredients. I thought there has to be an easier way to make these. Some use olive oil, which is ok, but I am not a big fan of the fragrance, or lack of with some olive oil.

You can use wool strips too, but wool is a bit thick, the cotton strips are user friendly...lol... Kinda different and fun. Have a great weekend.....Is spring really here?? Not so sure...

Hello~! I always have quite a bit of scrap linen and monks cloth. I can only hook so many flowers...lol.... So...I thought of a way to use it up and help repel the moths at the same time......Sachets! I used a lil' penny posy design, but the sky is the limit on design. I filled mine with Cedar Chips, but you can also use Lavender, Cloves, Thyme, or Cinnamon. If you think of any other natural repellents, please do share in the comment section.
I thought the loose weave would let the scent out and they could be cute at the same time..lol. I also have some loosely woven wool that is not large enough for a pillow and too loose to cut into strips, so I may try it next.

Is it spring yet??? Not quite I suppose...but, I have been very busy hooking up tulips and bunnies! Here are the bunnies. They look pretty happy...lol
I used my Penny Bunny Pattern for both, I just hooked a carrot with floppy tops on one and I decided to hook them in cream rather than in brown.
I will post photos of my tulips and tulips rug next post. I am working on another tulip rug now, sort of an antique album quilt design! FUN!!
Tonight was date night with my valentine! lol! We had a super great dinner and shopped just a bit, then back home to the kids. It wa great not cooking and it is nice the kids are finally old enough so mom and dad can slip away for a while...boy you really need that sometimes...lol.. It was so quiet!!! I can't be gone for very long though, the kids tell me our little dog Libby whimpers at the door and won't eat, etc...while I am away. You may remember we got her back last fall, she was a rescue...she attached to me right away....god lover her!
Happy Valentines Day to everyone! Hugs! Cathy
