Thanks for the advice yesterday on how you deal with migraines. I have tried Imitrix and Excedrine Migraine meds and neither one seems to help much. Imitrix makes me nauseous and Excedrine makes me really jittery without taking the headache away. I woke up this morning and still had a bit of a headach so took more ibuprofen and seem to be feeling a little better so far. I don't have TIME for a headache today :)
Won't you join me in making Christmas stockings for our troops? Here's a couple of templates, taken from coloring pages off the net.
Christmas stocking #1
Christmas stocking #2
Just print, cut out from fabric-I use one side Christmas and one side 'ugly' fabric that isn't going into my quilts and sew them together. I use some fancy stuff that also isn't going into quilts for the cuff at the top and put a loop of ribbon at the top and they take about 5 minutes each to make.
I will post some pictures along the way, but I have a project for the next few weeks.
I plan to send mine to Operation Holiday Stockings. They want them about 6 x 9 inches so they don't cost too much to ship. I bet they would appreciate a couple of dollars to help with shipping if you can spare it too.
Eventhough the war is 'over' in Iraq there are still troops overseas and they will be there for Christmas. Let's say THANKS for serving and protecting our freedoms, no matter what you believe about the war. I live close to an air force base and see the affects on the children of these military families every day. Many of my students have a parent serving away from home and they really need to know that we appreciate their efforts and sacrifices.
Who is going to join me this year in making a few Christmas Stockings?
