Chewy box

Hi everyone, it’s Millie & Walter here! It’s time for this month’s Chewy.com review. We all love when we see this box get dropped off on our front porch. Since we eat Merrick food every day and really like their products, this month our mom chose their Backcountry Wild Prairie Real Chicken Sausage Cuts Dog Treats for us.

There are other flavors of this treat available so if chicken isn’t your favorite we are sure you can find one that suits you.

Of course mom made us pose with the bag.

Here are the details on these Sausage Cut Treats:

Merrick Backcountry Wild Prairie Real Chicken Sausage Cuts Dog Treats feature a hearty, wood-smoked taste that dogs go wild for. These treats are grain-free with no gluten ingredients and have real chicken as the first ingredient. Specially formulated to mimic the ancestral canine diet, Merrick’s Chicken Sausage Dog Treats are all-natural and packed with the meaty protein your dog craves.

The ingredients are:

Deboned Chicken, Dried Cultured Skim Milk, Mixed Tocopherols (a preservative), Rosemary Extract.

Here is what they look like up close. They really look like little cuts of sausage and smell amazing!

The treats are about the size of a quarter and could easily be broken into smaller pieces.

We finally were given the chance to taste them.

Hand it over mom!

Hi everyone it’s Cindy here. Today I’m joining on the Hookin on Hump Day blog hop. A couple of years ago I crocheted a baby blanket as a gift for a friends baby shower. A couple of months later, after the baby arrived, I crocheted a hat and a couple pair of booties from left over yarn. Well I still had plenty of yarn left over so I decided to use it up.

I started with the Granny Ripple Baby Afghan from The Stitchin Mommy but when I was done making it as long as I wanted it seemed a bit too skinny. In order to make it wider I felt I needed to fill in the ripples on each end.

I couldn’t find an actual pattern to do that for this type of ripple afghan but I used the technique I saw used on different ripple blankets and improvised how to fill in the angles. All it took was a progression of single, half double and double crochet stitches.

When I was done filling in the ripples I then added rows of double crochet to both sides. To complete the afghan I added a picot edge all around. The afghan doesn’t lay flat because I probably put too many stitches on the long edges and the ripple fill wasn’t perfect either. I kind of like the way it turned out wavy though.

Crochet hats and booties

I still had plenty of yarn so I decided to add a pair of booties and a couple of hats. The bootie pattern is the same one I used previously and can be found in the June 2010 issue of Crochet World Magazine. Last but not least I made a couple of hats too. I only had a sliver of the yellow left so I did one hat mostly in the white and then did the last round in the yellow. I was also running low on the purple so I did the starting circle in it and then alternated the purple and white. The pattern I used for the hat is called My Handsome Prince Newborn Baby Hat from Oombawka Design. I liked this hat pattern because it was worked in continuous rounds

My plan is to donate these to a worthy charity. I have heard that the Veterans Administration is in need of newborn baby items for some of the women in their care so that is the first place I will approach to make this donation and if not them then I’m sure any of our local hospitals can use them.

I’m also joining Oombawka Designs Link and Share Wednesday.

Hi everyone, it’s Millie here. Something strange happened here yesterday. An unusual guest arrived at our door looking for some air conditioning to keep cool.

Millie - in front of fireplace with Snowman

Don’t worry the fireplace is not lit.

This guy said he had hitch hiked all the way from the Ohio and Pencil Vane E Ah border. That sounded suspicious since I know my good friends Frankie & Ernie are in the process of moving from Ohio to Pencil Vane E Ah. I think he jumped off the moving van and escaped from F & E’s mom’s snowfreak collection. Don’t worry boys I will box this one up and send him right back to where he belongs.

I sure hope Frankie & Ernie will be back to blogging soon. I sure have missed them during there moving hiatus. We all have. I can’t wait to here all about their moving adventure.
