Default Honeysuckle toys

Merry Christmas everyone!

Need some advice... My husband bought me a sewing machine and I want to make some stuffed pillows with catnip and honeysuckle.

I have a couple chunks of honeysuckle wood pieces - they don't care much for them, but I was thinking if I were to grind it up it may be more sniffy for them. They do react to it, just not these big chunks. Do you think if I were to cut them into smaller pieces that either my coffee grinder or food processor could handle making them into a powder? I don't want to wreck my machines as they are expensive to replace lol

Anyways, any input is appreciated!

I wouldn't risk it. Those machines are not made for grinding hard stuff.

What I would try is putting the pieces in some sort of bag and using a hammer to beat the 'xxxx' out of them.

Have no opinion on the grinding method, though I'm pretty sure that grinding it up will increase its effectiveness.

My cat is difficult to get her to respond to catnip (until recently I thought she would never respond at all, until a cat sitter got me a special kind), and in that light I had bought her a couple of honeysuckle toys a couple years ago. It's OK, I'll call it "Catnip Lite."

My guys go nuts for honeysuckle, but only the sawdust. Thanks Jim, I'll try the hammer idea, I think you're right about it wrecking my machines.
