400 +

Between these two jars there are over 400 yo-yos. I have made over 300 of these in the last few weeks while sitting in doctors' offices and at home late at night, staying up with my sick daughter. I really don't have a project for these because they are not in the right set of numbers for the table topper, groups of 4 in CD size.

The little ones are made using a mini CD or mini DVR disc as a template. Those are what I made the most of these last two weeks, in fact all of that size, and a few big ones. In the smaller size there are over 250; I lost count after that and didn't feel like re-counting. The real neat thing about the small yo-yos is that most are made from scraps that one of the ladies in my church gave me about two years ago. The reason that is so cool is, she is in her late 80's or early 90's and she told me they were from her mother's scraps, so there is no telling how old some of the fabric in those yo-yo's is. Truly, some are between 50 and 100 years old, if not older. I need to come up with a special project to use them in. There is some of the real old fabric in the bigger yo-yos, too. Also, there is some new fabric in the small yo-yos.

  1. I just love your flower garden pieces and especially the yoyo's. I have always wanted to make a yoyo coverlet. How do you join the yoyo's? Just tack them together maybe? I love your blog, very fun and full of energy. I posted you to my favorite blogs hope you don't mind.

  2. Thank you for stopping in to have a look around. yes they are just tacked together I put about 6 stitches to hold them together on each spot I tack them to each other. I am fine with being posted as one of your favorite blogs and thank you for doing that.

    Take care
    Sunshine

  3. They are so pretty!!! I loved your blog. What a treasure you have received and it is so nice that you cherish the gift that the elderly woman from your church gave you. I hope that when you do decide what to make out of the yo-yos that you will post a photo of the project. Above all else, I hope that your daughter is doing better.

  4. Oh how I love yo-yo's. My grandmother used to make them with every sinlge scrap she had. She them would join them to make bed quilts. They always looked so pretty with a bright white blanket underneathe the yo-yo quilt; it make the yo-yo's pop out!

    Good luck with your yo-yo's! I'm a little jealous of those fabric treasures :)
