Iron four white cotton tea towels, then fold and line up in a row. Using a pencil, draw a clothesline across all four towels, starting on the left with spring and ending on the right with winter. Unfold, and continue the design on each towel, adding loopy cursive labels and seasonal details. Stitch using black embroidery floss for the clothesline, clothespins, and clothes. Add images from each season using colorful floss: raindrops for spring, flowers for summer, leaves for fall, and snowflakes for winter.

That’s why the Acer R240HY is the perfect gift: It’s a computer monitor that’ll help with homework (you know, the reason they’re actually at school), but it’s also ideal for using as a TV when streaming movies. Why? Well, for starters, the super vibrant 1920 x 1080 resolution display will rival most HD sets. And the screen affords almost a full 180 degrees of viewing angles for those late nights crowding around flicks with friends.
As apple cider is to fall, hot chocolate is to winter—regular, steaming mugs of that chocolate-y goodness can propel you through the short days and oh-so-long nights of January and February. Grab a few packets of your favorite brand (and don’t forget you can get different varieties, like mint or Mexican chocolate) and put them in a festive mug for your recipient’s pleasure.
