I never was very good with a yo yo as a kid. There were times I could get it to go up and down for awhile but I never could do any tricks. And before lone I would have it spinning at the bottom of it’s string needing to be wound up again. These little fellows on the other hand I can do. Up and down I go with my needle and thread and quick as a wink I pull it all tight and wha la I have a cute little yo yo.
Until recently I would just cut out circles to make these sweet things. But if you will remember in my Santa Baby letter I requested a yo yo maker. Now my Santa is not real good at getting the things I request at the quilt shop. He is afraid he will get the wrong thing so he buys a gift card to insure I get precisely what I want. So armed with my gift card and coupons I headed for JoAnn’s. Lucky me all quilting notions were 40%off and I had a coupon that took an additional 20%off. I bought a few things for the guild and these little fellows.
They make yo yo making a breeze. I had the yo yo’s I needed for this quilt done in a snap. I’ve got them all sewn on and I’m hoping today to sandwich and start quilting it. Yeah, I’m that much closer to getting another of my PhD’s done!
Hope you have a happy day with a little time for sewing:)
