As Promised

Eye Candy! This was one of my first quilting projects. It's a lap size that I squeezed out of some scraps around the house using a nine patch pattern. I didn't actually quilt this, I was too chicken at that point to try quilting anything, I tied it instead. It has a poly batting and is perfect for the couch on cool days. So sorry for the fuzzy pics, I'm planning on upgrading the camera by the fall to a digital slr to get clearer shots.

This is just a basic whip stitch, it's all I knew at the time. I've since learned how to make an invisible stitch. I've heard some call it a castle stitch but as of now it's the nameless invisible stitch for me.

It's Summer Yo-Yo Madness. I have no clue what I'll be doing with these yet but production goes on. I'm currently enrolled in an internet class and this is what I do in the mornings while sitting in the sun trying to not look like a ghost. Here's a challenge. Make a small project out of yo-yo's using scraps that you can display somewhere in your house to give it a more summery feel. Email me pictures and I'll post them here! I want to see what you are working on..

OMG, you're turning into a Yankee!!

Quilt looks great and the yo-yos look like fun, I haven't tried those yet.

Thanks! I'm glad to be back and looking forward to future posts and projects. The yo-yo's are addictive. They are so easy, anyone can make them. I have an upcoming post about them. Everyone who tries them should send me an email. I want to post people's projects.
