I decided I needed some little favor that they could take home. When I belonged to the Shawnee Quilt Guild we had pot luck luncheons twice a year and there would always be a favor to take home. I remember a little fabric snowman pin and a chicken pin cushion and a quilted mini-stocking ornament. The value wasn't the item; the value was the memory of a fun luncheon with people I liked. So, what could I make? It had to be something small and not too time consuming. I decided to make twelve little yoyo pins with buttons and beads. I couldn’t just make six because someone else might come at the last minute. Plus they aren’t all the same, so I need to have a few extra so that even the last person will have a choice. So, twelve it is. The button and beads make it look kind of flower-like, and I stitched a little pin backing on each. I made six yesterday and hope to complete the rest today.
Tomorrow I can think about food, seating, and parking. The little presents will be ready.
