Which photo?........

To represent yesterdays activities I didn't know whether I should take a photo of the vacuum cleaner or the tax return.  I didn't think either would be very interesting so instead I'll show what I took along to sew when I got together with friends on Thursday.  I started these before my mother passed away almost 4 years ago.  Maybe in another 4 years I'll have enough of them to make something.  I think I got about 10 of them done in 2 hours so it is bound to be a small project whenever I get around to it.

You know, I think yo you may have been close to one of the very first things I sewed. They are fun and relaxing. My cousin had one of those funny dolls made by stringing them all together for arms and legs and adding a stuffed head and I was completely taken with it,

Sometimes distractions are a pleasant change. If you don't make a small project they can be used as embellishment on journal covers. Chris

I have a bag of those that I am slowllllly joining by hand. I may decide to join them by machine.

I made a queen size quilt with
yo-yos. I made it in colors of my bedroom. I love it. I also used some as garland at Christmas. I like making them once in a while as you don't really have to concentrate that much on what you are doing. A great past-time while watching tv. I love the varying sizes of yours and maybe will do another project some day with the assorted sizes.

In my poorer days when I had lots of Christmas fabric and not much money I made a million billion small ones of those and strung them together to make little wreaths as Christmas ornaments. I still haven't recovered and don't think I could stand to make any for awhile yet!

Those always bring back such happy memories from my childhood. But they were never made with such Wandaful fabrics.

I love all your different sized yo yos. Lovely colors! I'd sew them together to put in the center of the table.

Love the colours and sizes, forget taxes and cleaners, Yo-Yos are much more fun/ Cheers from Jean

Yep, yesterday was my day to pick up my tax return as well. So much fun :-(. Doesn't matter if I get money back or have to pay. Still stresses me out.

You are doing better than I would have! I do not like to make Yoyos!

I have a dear friend who makes yo-yo's and took them with us on a trip to Germany. Everyone we met enjoyed watching her sew these little decorative circles. My take-along project is hexies, but have yet to finish even so much as a table runner.
