Swap Pics and a Sneak Peek

Morning everyone!!! Here are the pictures of the cards and picture that I sent for the swap that Deb (Garage Sale Gal) & I had. (She finally got her box...yay!) It was a lot of fun making these and receiving!

Next is a sneak peek at my yo-yo project. It is finally finished and I sent Donna (DONNA'S-In The Attic) the pictures of the finished project. When she has posted them I will post them here too. I like the colors...I didn't stitch the yo-yo's together, I attached them to the project. I kind of like the "shabbier" look of it. Now I can get started on those Christmas gifts!

I guess that's all for now...happy treasure hunting and hugs!

Cute! I really like the wire rack you have your picture displayed on.

I always thought I wanted a yo-yo tablecloth...tha was until I started cutting out and making yo-yo's...guess my attention span wasn't that long.

Have fun yo-yoing!

Great swap gifts! I adore those yo-yos. I might have to add that to my to-do list. I think that is something I could do- maybe :) Hope you are having a good week!

I am seeing the yoyo's everywhere lately. I think I need to make some for my little dresses....don't you think? We ate some of our garden tomatoes for supper...yummer.

Brogan said...

your yoyo's are so cute.
I love the buttons.
I used to quilt and do more handiwork like needlepoint but alas I have no patience anymore!

Do you have instructions how to make those yo-yos? I have lots of scraps that I could use for this kind of project but don't know where to start.
