Herbal Coffee ~ Mini Pineapple Crochet Applique ~ Tidbits
This coffee was rated organic, and made with various nuts, fruits, and herbs. These are completely caffeine free. I'll let you all know how they taste. They are all non-gmo as well.
This was the last thing I handcrafted free - a mini pineapple applique made into a "bag tag." These are too delicate to use as a keychain, but kids like to hang them on their backpacks. A daughter's friend wanted one after seeing some on her backpack. I had to explain to Daughter, if she brings me any more orders they have a price tag. By the way, I found a free pattern for a larger pineapple online, and simply used the crochet thread.
The younger two only have today and tomorrow for Easter break, but everyone else has to work or go to college. We'll probably just hang out here.
I made my first trip to the vegetable garden. It was too wet to till, weed or plant, but my garlic looks great. No asparagus yet. It's a good feeling to visit the garden again.
Easter Sunday was the most beautiful day. Hubby and I spent the entire afternoon and evening on the porch. We even popped some homegrown popcorn. We both had work to do early in the day, but after that we relaxed. It was totally worth it. Shortly after we came inside, it poured down rain.
I was probably the only person with laundry on their clothesline yesterday, but a gal has to take advantage of a "good weather day."
