meet millicent

Do you remember Albert the Birdie?  Well, he has a friend named Millicent the Cat.  So far, Millicent has never attempted to eat dear Albert and so they have formed an alliance.  They are our booboo buddies.  And lately they've been on sick duty.  The crummy cold has visited our house and we have all been crabby and congested.  When fevers rage, Millicent and Albert agree to chill in the freezer and curl up with hot little bodies.  When congestion refuses to go away, they are only too happy to be warmed up in the microwave and release their chamomile and lavender aroma.

I really would love to share the instructions on how to make these dear little creatures with you and I'm working on a pdf file for them.  I will let you know that the outside of Albert and Millicent are removable and washable  (pretty nice for a house pet, wouldn't you agree?), while the inside is a bag filled with flaxseed, chamomile and lavender florets.

Now I have to go clean up spilled milk and a whole box of scattered cheerios...

Feel better soon! I love your comfy dolls. You are so crafty!
Good luck picking a baby name... and don't listen to anything anyone says (except maybe hubby - darn)! Just pick your fave or that one God keeps pulling you back to! Can't wait to hear what you decide.
