Remember back in May when I showed you my stack of yo-yo's? I finally finished sewing them together and here is the little tablerunner...
Now I must admit through my frustration about some things shown and not shown on online instructions about yo-yo's, I have now seen a better way to put these together. I think this could have looked nicer had I realized it ahead of time but my next attempt will be better as a result. I also must say that square yo-yo's are not as square as I thought they would be when I started.
I debated with myself last night to use vintage buttons on them or not. Jos came downstairs and looked and immediately said not to use them. Well as I had laid them in rows after taking them off the tablerunner to look at it without once again, I thought I will keep the buttons out to make buttons icicles for my winter tree.
I received a sweet gift this week from a friend. It is a piece of July 4th fabric and my friend's latest little design. How is she? Tanya ~ The Sampler Girl. If you don't know her designs, they are well worth a look and she takes direct orders now from her website. I have a couple of plans for this fabric but cannot share it yet as one will be a little gift in return for her. Thanks so much Tanya!
I have decided to put my Beatrix Potter Quaker sampler aside again and pick up Silent Sampler once again. Why? This one is smaller and can be finished faster than the other. I really would like to have one of these two WIPs finished this summer. It just seemed more likely that I could finish this one in the amount of time. I am just about at the half way point now. This is not a great photo. It is a sampler that is not easy to photograph.
Off to pack my Centennial Sampler fabrics and patterns to take to Cranberry Cottage. Have a great and creative weekend everyone!
