I have been busy this evening. Thank you all for your ideas on gifts for Hunter's teachers. I thought he wanted me to make one for his homeroom teacher, but he wants a gift for all of his teachers. I ended up making 3 sets of coasters. I didn't do them in Christmas fabric, so that they could be used all year. I bought 3 coffee mugs from the Dollar Discount to put them in. I will either add some candies or take Michelle's advice and put a couple packs of hot cocoa in them. Hunter is very pleased with them.
I also took an idea from one of Jill's post. I made a Rice Heating Bag. I called my sister while she was in town and had her to pick up a bag of rice for me. Richard put his back out this morning working at the sawmill, so he is using it now. He said it really works. I think I will make several more of them for my family. Mom and Chantal use heating pads alot.
My sister, Chantal finally has a boyfriend!! I know she will kill me if she reads this. I had mentioned before about her being so lonesome. Anyway this is a guy that she has known for a long time, I think they went to school together. They have been talking for several months now, but I guess it is official that they are a couple now. She seems to be so happy! He is a really nice guy, but there is one problem. He is in the National Guard and will be leaving for Afghanistan in February. He will be gone for a little over a year. She will be so sad when he leaves. I love her so much and hate to see her so upset. Hopefully, all will go well for them both.
