Phew!


With a bit of luck this will get posted out by the deadline of 30th September - just the label to do now. Once again the colours aren't as yellow and mellow as in real life but you get the general idea. It seems to have taken a while but I have got quite fond of it. I want to use yo-yos again in a different project soon - those tools make them so quickly.

Glad to hear you liked the yo-yo maker (they really look good on the quilt by the way)as I have recently bought the flower one, and have made a couple of lop-sided ones, but think it's practice I need. Will report back later.

Hi Fiona, love the finished product...*VBS* I'm sure whoever receives it will love it! It doesn't seem as much 'you' to me as the plaids, but I do confess to being bias about them....LOL. You do a great job with scrap quilts....love them all! Hugs, Finn
