During the last two months, I’ve had two opportunities to put my crafty skills to good use.
The first time was at La Table. That’s “lah tahb-luh.” It’s French for those of you, like me, who speak Southern. La Table is an annual event to support the Interfaith Hospitality Network, which is an Athens organization that provides temporary housing for families without homes.
La Table is a fancy plated luncheon where different folks sponsor tables that they decorate. My church, Young Harris Memorial United Methodist Church, sponsored the table, and I was honored to be able to decorate it. I went with an Arabian Nights theme. Here’s what it looked like:
The table centerpiece was an Arabian city made of a rolled stamp on cardstock–Morrocan orange-brown on a teal blue. A cloth napkin with an Arabic motif served as a path to the city, with a tea light candle lighting the way. And, the night was evoked with these simple pillows that I edged with my fav firestitch.
The second time I got to use my crafty skills recently for good was to decorate tables at Georgia Option’s Annual Meeting. I am privileged to serve on the Board at Georgia Options, which is a group that helps developmentally disabled adults live independently. Their theme was Georgia Option’s All-Stars.
What a joy to put all this craftiness to good use!
