Polka Dot Swap and Back to Yo-yo-ing!

Recently, I participated in a Polka Dot Swap hostessed by Lori at Morning Glories and Moonflowers and my partner was Michelle at Gingham World. This was a fun swap to participate in, I only wish I had had more time to hand make Michelle some things. I totally forgot to take pics of what I sent her but I can tell you what I sent her...a black and white polka dot casserole with lid, a set of towels with a red and white polka dot oven mitt to which I added a red yo-yo, a pink hat with yo-yos attached, a polka dot water bottle, polka dot tags and ribbon. I hope she enjoyed her package! I know I enjoyed mine. Here are some pictures of what I received...

Michelle made me a really cute reversible bag, a hair clip and an orange pin, a super cute frog and a polka dot note book. She, also, included coffee mug holders and a polka dot glass which is perfect for my daily iced tea. :-)

Here is a close up of the frog. She is hanging out in my kitchen.

Thank you, Michelle!!!!!

Now that I have more time on my hands, I decided to make some yo-yos. I sure have missed making them. I decided to attach them to a reusable shopping bag and send it off to a friend. It's a surprise for her, hope she likes it! Here's a pic of part of it. The lighting in this apartment is really, really bad so my pics aren't so great, sorry!

The weekend is already here! On the agenda tomorrow...IKEA to get some organizing things which we really need! Tomorrow night...the Detroit Tigers against the White Sox at Cellular Field. I cannot wait! I haven't been to a Tiger game in weeks! I miss those boys!

Thank you for all your sweet comments about Kitty. Abby is doing so much better, she is still very needy but she is letting me sleep at night now. Poor old girl!

Hope you all have a great weekend!!!

We always feel better when our fur babies feel better. Poor girl-she had no choice but to adjust! She might still be miffed for a while! LOL
I love the yo-yos. I've never made any but they are adorable. I bought a quilt top at an auction that is all yo-yos and I love it. Maybe some nice cool winter day I can try my hand at it. Does it require any special tool?
