Yo-yos

Whew! Thank goodness I got that out of my system. Sometimes I feel the need to do a little hand sewing, and I always have grand plans for completed queen-size coverlets and quilts (see: Grandmother's flower garden, crocheted ripple blanket). This time I made myself stop with this tiny doll-sized product. It's about 9" by 11". I used Heather Bailey's tutorial for these. They're all from the scrap bin, and were actually pretty enjoyable to make. But I'm so glad to be able to let myself off the hook on this particular method. Sometimes there's too much inspiration out there, you know?

Oh my word, do I love yo-yos. And oh, do I NOT have the patience to make any more yo-yo projects. I did one 100 yo-yo table topper and I think it pretty much squelched my urge for good. Yours are lovely, and I applaud you for quitting when you had your fill! :)
