yo-yo place or mine?

There must be a use for all those yo-yo's I've been making. Maggie loves to lay her head on them whenever I put them on the floor.
I saw a cute picture in Better Homes and Garden's book, Treasury of Christmas. A little girl had a blanket made of yo-yo's. Right then and there I decide that I would make one, too. It sure does take a lot of them to even cover a pillow sham. They are my favorite "take along" project. I've been making them while I wait or have to ride in the car with someone.


  1. I love your porch photo, and the antique linens are a delight. I also love yo-yos! Whenever I can I stitch some in Americana Fabrics and put them together. Right now I have a piece assembled about the size of a small table topper that I want to grow up into a tablecloth or bedspread.
    Great Blog!

  2. Your porch is so inviting! Love the vintage scarves. Reminds me of my mother. I wasn't using the dishtowels that she made for me 45 years ago until she said she made them to be used, not passed down. Now I wished I would have saved out just one to remember her by.

  3. I just happened upon your great blog. Love all the super photos. I'm your newest follower.
