Christmas Yo-Yo's

Hope you had a Merry Christmas! We did and I'm anxious to put away Christmas and jump into 2011 with both feet. I've already set some goals for the upcoming year and while I won't go into a deep personal introspective monologue here, I will say that they mostly all have to do with being a better steward of my time.

I wanted to pop on to share a project that I made for a couple of special friends this year for Christmas. You may remember this frame that I made earlier this year, well I liked it so much I decided to revisit it for gifts. I got a whole bunch of different fat quarters from a quilting store (all from the same line) and went to work. I love how these turned out.

True confession time, I also cheated a little bit. For my first frame I sewed all the yoyo's freestyle, but while I was at the quilting store, I stumbled upon a Clover Quick Yo-Yo Maker. I still sewed them all by hand, but was aided by this handy contraption so they look a little more uniform.
Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with the first MFT Teaser for this month's awesome release! See you then!

So pretty and what a sweet gift. I love yo yo's - somewhere in a sewing basket is some larger ones for a quilt. I won't say how long it's been sitting there!
