Recipe compliments of Wendell’s Aunt Nancy-she gave me a batch of already-made wipes, along with the recipe for a shower gift:)

  • 1 Roll of good, thick paper towels
  • 2 Tbsp. Baby Oil
  • 1 Tbsp. Baby Shampoo
  • 1 1/2 c. Warm water

Cut roll of paper towls in half (I use a sharp bread knife).  Set one half aside for your next batch.  Squish roll together and pull our cardboard center.  Place roll in container.  Wisk together oil, shampoo, and water.  Pour mixture over towels. Cover, turn upside down for 15 minutes.  Use wipes by pulling from center.

Note: A Rubbermaid #6 container works well.  Or the container in the pifture (from Walmart)- I love this one because I can leave 2 flaps open and leave a small corner of the next wipe hanging out so I can get it without taking the lid off each time.

Have you ever seen this? What have I been missing?

half way done

 

Take a fork and stab holes all over an orange or grapefruit.

Fill holes with whole cloves.

Sit it somewhere that needs a wonderful scent to warm the atmosphere.

It can dry out, no problem.

I finally finished piecing my quilt.  Unfortunately, it’s not done yet, but now I’m sending it off to my aunt to handquilt, so it’s out of my hands.  I just have to attach a few pictures; this is quite an accomplishment for me, especially because I’ve been working on it since May!
