Yo Yo bliss....

This week I have been busy making yo yo's. They will be little gifts for the girls at work.
Once you get started it is easy to get quite zippy at making them, though the smaller ones are a little fiddly.
Can you guess what they will be?

These ......
Became these.....

A few more sets to go and then I just have to wait for the cotton reels...... Getting the idea?
If you can't wait to see what the will be go HERE for the tutorial on a lovely blog.
With the wonderful exchange rate against the USD my mum bought some lovely Luna Notte fabrics and decided to surprise me with a charm pack of Bliss. I love this fabric range and she knows I have been busting to get some. This was a taster to see which ones I would like to order.
Can't wait to think of a project for this and also to get some extras to go with the charm pack, perhaps a jelly roll or layer cake? Mmmmmmm.

cheers
Marina
happy stitching!

Hi Marina, You are another really organised person who is getting ready for Christmas. Wish I could say the same. Thanks for the link to the suffolk puff project. They are very cute.

The moda packs are lovely aren't they. I only came across them the other week when I went to the knit and stitch show. Can't wait to see what you make with them!

The yoyo's look great...but I'm not going to add any more projects to my ever growing list ;-) I will just admire yours.
