yo yo advice

Got the little blue ones sewed together. Thought I would show next to the coverlet so you could see the difference in size.  Used the green maker for these.
I made these so people couldn't look in my back door.  First I made them as big as the glass and it was too heavy. So I cut em back. I could get another magnetic rod and make a valance and then put these down farther. What do youns think? They would still be a gap between them jeez life in yoyo land. That door is on the same wall as my valance over my kitchen sink that I posted before.

Not my favorite color but I kind of like this. Twenty five  little yo yos that I'm going to sew together. I promise I'll give the yo yos a rest. lol

battery operated lights

This is as close to a Christmas tree as I'm getting this year. I do have light in a hemlock in the yard. Some friends sent this arrangement to me when I lost my aunt. I got the light at Dollar General. I'm always late to new things. It takes three AA batteries to make them work.
The arrangement is sitting on top of my work in progress yo yo coverlet.  When I get tired of working on it, it becomes a table cover. One day it will be a coverlet for my king size bed.

Meet Janie

150 little yo yo's. I usually put on my little tree but this year they reside in my light fixture. I used the green yo yo maker for these. Very good scrap buster.
Let me introduce you to Janie. My Aunt Lynda found her in an antique mall marked down 75% off. Her yo yo's were made of all kinds of fabric. She has no support so I had to prop her up.

sometimes less is just better

I had already sewed these yo yo's together and when I sewed them on the bag I stuck my fingers more than any bag yet! Front and back
