My wonderful mother-in-law put me in charge of makin the centerpiece for our thanksgiving dinner. I'll be honest, I've never been a huge fan on centerpieces. I guess the word conjures up images of oversized things that don't allow you to see the person sitting across from you, something stuffy, or toll-painted (which may be worse). But I was excited to try my hand at it. And I came across this great tutorial on making these things called yo-yo's, so I had to try it out. I liked the result. We'll put an amber-colored glass bowl in the middle with autumn stuff (acorns, etc.), in the middle.
I also picked up a remnant of this red/green/gold striped fabric at Walmart. I cut out four squares and sewed them together to make a nice square (the real table is square, so I wanted it to fitI didn't like the gold part of it, so I cut it off and sewed on a border of the same gold fabric as the yo-yo's. I really like how it all turned out.
I love my life. I have a wonderful husband and beautiful daughter, terrific parents, in-laws, brothers, friends, and extended family. I've had fantastic experiences thus far and look forward to having more. I have the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life and I love it.
