Yo Yo's

Have you made yo-yo's before? Well I sure hadn't. You see, that is the beauty of quilting bees. I belong to one called the Traveling Circles Bee and each month one member sends out fabric and instructions on what they would like us to make for them.  I have been working on 16 yo-yos. Funny thing is, I don't even need my machine, it's all hand sewing. I would have never attemped these if I wasn't required to. However, being the good bee member that I am, I had no choice.  I love the way each month brings a new challenge, and makes me step outside my box.  So Kelly, thanks for that and your yo-yo's are in the mail!


  1. They look so cute in the Pezzy print. I'm stopping by to say hello having seen you on Amy's Creative Side - love the quilts you had on there. I'm new here too and just started a blog as well but I haven't become involved in a bee yet - what a great idea to try new skills! Love the look of your blog!
