Thank You Teachers! :)

Welcome to the final installment of the "Thank You To Our Teachers Blog Hop"! It's been a pleasure having all of you come visit - I really appreciate all your kind comments and I hope you'll become a follower and come back and visit me again sometime! :)
If you want to start again at the beginning head here: Memories with Jen..
My last project is another fairly simple thing to make if you can sew a straight stitch! These are stress-relieving pillows filled with plain white, uncooked rice. The pillows can be left in the freezer and used as cold packs for all kinds of injuries and little bumps and bruises. The can also be heated in the microwave for a few minutes for a re-usable heating pad. When I pulled a muscle in my back these were a lifesaver! Imagine what a great gift this would make for a tired teacher!

Thank you to everyone who has come by already and left comments! I am excited to meet you and see your blogs as well! Here's the next blog in the hop! AnitaAndBugs.

Also - check out this month's "Simply Handmade" magazine for a tutorial on one of my rolled flower headbands! :)

I just love the fabric you use! So pretty. I didn't realize these were so simple to make! I can definitely do that. Great idea to have some kept in the freezer. Much better than a bag of peas! LOL
