Good Morning MS RUBIE! I really don't like yo-yo's and what little I have used them I have a dicken's of a time getting them to look right.

It is raining again and will all week - I tend to get in the mood of starting 100 things when trapped indoors. Really need to concentrate on finishing.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

I have never made yo-yo's and for some reason have never had the desire to make any.

I hope you have a spectacular week!!

I've used yo-yos for the middle of flowers and they came out great. Haven't made a quilt with them yet.

RitaMarie said...

I've used the yo yo makers and really like them. They are easy to use and make consistent size and shape yo-yos. Love the heart and flower shapes and have used them for embellishments. Can't imagine making enough for a quilt though.

I haven't done anything with Yo-Yos yet. I've got a really cool wall hanging of a Christmas tree that is done with Yo-Yos, but for some reason, I just haven't taken the plunge into Yo-Yo land. Or Hexit land either.

Sallie said...

I don't remember every making a yo-yo.

Chris H said...

Yep I've made yo-yo's... for bags, for quilts and such like.

I have just started to make yoyos and use them as flowers on my applique pieces.

Haven't ever made a YoYo but it looks like fun!

I love making yo-yos. I use them as embelisments in purses, I make flowers with them and even broches.I've never used a yo-yo maker, mine are hand-made.

I've just sent you my email. I've made yo-yo's (the old fashioned way) and put them on wall hangings as flowers. I then embroider stems and leaves. Thanks for the fun giveaway.

I sent the email. Thanks for the giveaway. I have a yo-yo maker, but, I haven't ever used it yet. It is a heart. I have a great idea for using yo-yo's.
