Old fashioned potpourri Recipe Remember that old fashioned potpourri commonly called a rose jar, it will take a large quantity of rose petals.

Hubby likes to "bathe with Abby" By Abigail Van Buren (c; 1974 by Chlugo Tribune-N. Y. Ntwi Synd., Inc. DEAR ABBY: What would you say if I told you that a supposedly sane 50-year-old man refuses to take a bath without your column? If for some reason our newspaper ever quit printing it, I am sure he would rot. As if this isn't bad enough, he is truly convinced that sometimes his wife tries to destroy the paper before he gets an opportunity to "bathe" with Abby." Is he crazy, or just eccentric? APPALLED DAUGHTER DEAR DAUGHTER: Neither. He's adorable. Please ask him not to splash. I hate to get my hair wet! DEAR ABBY: I love my husband, but sometimes I would like to wring his neck. We have two kids, five and seven, and Joe keeps nagging me for more. He says he "loves" kids. Well, I love them, too, but he is making it very hard for me to raise them right. If I say no, he says yes. When I tell the kids to go to bed and they beg to stay up later, he says: "Aw, why do you have to be so strict? Give 'em an extra half hour." And he says this right in front of the kids! If I don't go along with him, I am'made to look like the mean one. You always say the husband and wife should be on the same team, but how do you get a husband on your team when he always wants to be the "hero?" CAN'T WIN FOR LOSIN' DEAR CAN'T: Tell the "hero" (and not in front of the kids) that children NEED to know what they may and may not do, and parents who allow themselves to be manipulated are doing their children an injustice. Mom and Dad should make those decisions together and stick with them. Always be fair and just. But firm. That's parental love in action. DEAR ABBY: I am living at home and my boyfriend, who lives out of state, is on a very limited income, so he has been writing airmail postcards instead of letters. He writes every day. My mother has been reading his postcards. I am sure of it because she seems to know everything he has written on them. He sometimes gets a little mushy and also writes some short poems which I consider beautiful, but very personal. I told my mother that 1 would appreciate it if she would NOT read my postcards, and she said anything written on a postcard could be expected to be read by the mailman and anyone else who handled it. Abby, I feel that if a person has real character he will not read even a postcard. What do you think? OKLAHOMAN DEAR OKIE: I think it is foolish to expect that which has been written on a postcard to remain confidential. Suggestion: Give your boyfriend his Christmas present early, and send him some airmail postage stamps- CONFIDENTIAL TO "EMBARRASSED NOW": My medical experts inform me that Herpes 2 should not (repeat NOT) be classified as a venereal disease. Although it is possible to contract it through sexual relations, it is by no means the ONLY way. No need for you to b# embarrassed. Everyone has a problem. What's yours? For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 69700, L.A., Calif. 90069. Enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope, please.

Is there anything I can do to save the sweater? - V.M. Illinois, i Dear V.M.: Have you thought about making a sleeveless sweater? All you need do is take out the sleeves and stitch around the openings to keep them from stretching. Then use either matching or contrasting yarn to crochet a row or'two around the opening. You now have a sweater you can continue wearing.' Best, Judy Love.

I have tried using a "in soaked in bleach and scouring cleanser. They did n°t work. Here is a great decorating idea. The flowers made from twine arc brightly colored in dye solutions. They are surprisingly easy to make, inexpensive and look like the expensive, imported ones you may find in stores. Supplies: Cream or light brown sisal or baling twine, liquid or powder Kit dye, fine and medium wire, green floral tape, scissors, wire cutter, old newspaper or paper towels. General Directions: Cut twine in about 8 inch lengths for each flower and unravel. Cut .shorter lengths, about 4 to 5 inches, for each flower center; unravel. A wide tooth comb can be used to help unravel; discard tangled fibers. Tie lengths loosely into bundles using a small piece of twine. For each chosen color, prepare dye solutions by mixing 1 tablespoon liquid dye or 1 teaspoon powder dye in one quart hot tap water. Submerge bundles in dye solutions for about 10 minutes or until color is as desired. Dye flower center bundles in contrasting col- ors. Rinse in cool water and drain on paper towels. When dry, loop medium wire around center of a bundle of 4 lo 5 inch fiber lengths (cut wire twice the length desired for flower stem) and twist wire ends together, l-'old twine ends together and secure by wrapping around fine wire just above the loop. Trim twine flower center edges lo desired length. Repeat for remaining flower centers. Place longer lengths of dyed twine in a contrasting color evenly around a flower center and lie securely with fine wire. Trim edges; bend and shape with fingers. Repeat for all flowers. To finish flowers, wrap with flon.l tape, beginning just slightly above where wire is tied around the fibers and continuing until entire stem is covered. Fiber flower container: A natural rattan container was dipped into a dye solution to add color, to qomplement'.the. fiber flower arrangement.
