I had totally forgotten how much I really LOVE to sew! It has been a very long time, years actually since I have had the time to sit in front of my machine and get lost for a weekend. I finally decided a few weeks ago it was way past due.
I have always enjoyed making blankets, quilts, pillows, curtains and only occasionally clothes. With a week full of birthdays at Thanksgiving week and Christmas quickly coming in....... I realized I had never made my granddaughters any blankets or quilts. I guess I was just always to busy enjoying them and watching them grow to have that kind of time commitment.
Let the search for the "perfect gift" hunt begin.
It is hard to believe that we are almost at the beginning of October already! Where did the summer go? As the weather cools off and the fall garden is all planted I am in my beginning phases of what to get the children for birthdays and Christmas.
And then in came this super cute little Dinosaur - Perfect timing!

With the heat wave being in full swing here in the Southeast and a massive cheesecake sweet tooth nagging at me for the last week, I started looking high and low for a no bake version of my FAVORITE dessert. Then I remembered I had seen a recipe on my Knox Gelatin box for a no bake version of cheesecake!

"gel" dishwasher liquid for well over 2 years now and I still love it when I have time to make it. Over the course of the last year or more I have been pretty much using this powder only. I still ocassionally make the Gel for the hand washing. Some of it is lack of time but more than anything it is that this method is just more convenient for me lately. I do not have to heat up my house, it is quicker to assemble as I am making all of my other cleaning supply batches and most importantly IT WORKS!! Finally! In the past the one problem that I had with the homemade versions was the film that was always left on "plastics". That can be cured with using a good Homemade rinse aid (Recipe here). This recipe is quick to assemble and cleans the dishes very well. The best part is it is very reasonable on cost at 2.36 for 28 oz - about a 50% savings on store bought.

That is why I call this little mixture my "MAGIC" rinse aid!
"flu" spray an extra boost by using these oils in my diffuser and WOW I can breath easy!!!
