Yo-Yo Challenge

Good afternoon! Here is a challenge I've been working on hosted by DONNA'S-In The Attic, go check it out! This is my kind of sewing...all by hand!!! I am HOPELESS with a sewing machine! I have made 90 yo-yo's using the large yo-yo maker and now I will apply them to my project. I hope it looks good when I'm done! I will post a photo later...good or not so good! ;-)

Hope you are all having a great summery day! The weather is beautiful here! Hugs and happy treasure hunting!

We have a lot in common. I love to make yo-yos and cards. I will have to checkout the yo-yo challenge. I need a few ideas for my yo-yos. I can not wait to see what you make with your yo-yos.
Take care.....denise

Hi Kim!
The yo-yos are beautiful. Gosh, until they end up in your final project they would look great piled up in a pretty basket somewhere. I love the colors. I can't wait to see what you do with them.

Happy Friday!

Your yo-yos are looking great! I don't have that many. I made 12 moraree yesterday. I still have NO IDEA what I am going to make. I do know that they look pretty being stored in my mason jar! I can't wait to see what you do with yours.

take care,

pretty neat. I just ran across Donna's yo-yo post yesterday. Not sure that I can sit down & make 90 yo-yo's. But it definitely sounds like my kind of sewing. I have not learned to use the machine either. can't wait to see how your project turns out. xoxo, Joanna

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

I have never made yo yo's . I think I will do that as my winter project . Show us what you do with them , when you get them done .

Barb said...

You have been busy. The yo-yo's look marvelous. Can't wait to see your finished project.

Also, thank you for your thoughts and prayers during the past couple weeks.
They mean so much to us.

Cindy@Cutepinkstuff said...

How fun! I'm like you! When I get going on something, I make them until I can make no more!

Yes, husbands and kitties have a secret society, so they think! Thanks for stopping by.

Michelle said...

Hi Kim ~ I love the look of yo-yo's but I'm better with my sewing machine than I am by hand! LOL

Just wanted to drop by for a visit and thank you so much for the sweet, encouraging comments you left on my blog. I'm still pretty much in a fog after hearing the news, but God is so good and we're gonna get through this!

Have a wonderful weekend!!!


Cami said...

I make yoyos when I travel by car. I've even managed to art journal with paint while going 70mph (in the passengers seat of course!). Love your pic!

Judy said...

Love your yo yo's! I have been wanting to make a yo yo pillow for some time now,
maybe I should just get into gear and get job, looking forward to
see what you make of them!
Have a lovely weekend, Jannet

The yo-yo's are lovely! What is a yo-yo maker? I'm with you on the hand sewing. I love to sew by hand, but have a fear of the sewing machine, which I plan to overcome. I've bought a machine several months ago, but have yet to put thread in it!
